U.S. News & World Report–Travel

Saddle up at a guest ranch.

Children, parents and grandparents alike will love a week of horseback riding, skeet shooting, line dancing and cattle drives at a guest ranch. Go west to a dude ranch like Averill’s Flathead Lake Lodge in Bigfork, Montana, for daily trail rides, a family rodeo and even a junior wrangler program, which teaches children the basics of horse care. You’ll find ranches on the East Coast too, such as Rocking Horse Ranch Resort tucked in the Hudson Valley in Highland, New York, which offers daily horseback rides, along with an indoor waterpark, scavenger hunts and a spa.
