CODY, Wyo. – Spring Break is the perfect time for families to experience the Wild West. Imagine yourself taking the best vacation of your life at a dude ranch. Think of the cool, fresh mountain air, the open spaces, and the feel of a steady horse beneath you as you top the next rise.
The flash of color from the dark pool as the monster trout rises to your offering… luxuriating in the warmth of the setting sun as you wait for the dinner bell’s call … shared time with family and friends.
The Dude Ranchers’ Association is your one stop shop for finding the right ranch for your group. Whether you want to stay close to home or have a specific area in mind, the DRA provides information on all of the top guest ranches in the western United States – and one in Arkansas, too.
They offer up information for travelers with special interests or with young children.
While the main focus of most ranches is horseback riding most of the DRA members host rodeos, campfire activities, craft seminars, hiking day trips and more. The Dude Ranchers’ Association can also point travelers looking to visit National Parks in the right direction. Many DRA members are located near many of America’s historic vacationing hot spots most recently featured in Ken Burn’s infamous National Parks documentary.
