Family Dude Ranch Vacations? Reasons you will Love Your Guest Ranch Getaway

Horseback riding might not be your first love (or even on your list of “likes”), but family dude ranch vacations may turn out to be your favorite getaways of all time.

My kids love going to Disneyland, and we are spoiled because we only live 30 minutes away. They know how awesome it is, yet I was surprised when I asked them one morning,

Would you rather spend a week at Disneyland (with a hotel pool!) or a week at a dude  ranch?”

All 4 piped up quickly with shouts of “DUDE RANCH!”

So, you might ask, what is all the fuss about? What’s so great about an all-inclusive stay at a family-friendly guest ranch that smells like hay?
