It’s been 20 years since Billy Crystal’s City Slickers hit the big screen and with the new film Rango, featuring the voice of Johnny Depp, taking a visit to the Wild West this spring, a whole new generation will be introduced to the cowboy lifestyle.

Horseback riding vacations provide Western lifestyle experience
 

Dude Ranches make a perfect family horseback riding vacation, as our hectic, technology driven lives need a way to relax, reconnect and unplug.  The Arizona Dude Ranch Association offers the opportunity to experience a traditional Western lifestyle and horseback riding family vacation like no other.  Time in front of the television or on the lap top is replaced with activities that range from horseback riding, to hayrides and cookouts or golf, spa treatments and tennis courts.

Dude Ranches in Arizona once numbered over 200 in the 1950’s and 60’s.  Today, their numbers have dwindled to a handful.  While the wide open vistas and horseback riding vacations in nature haven’t changed, ranches  have adapted to include activities to appeal to a wider audience.  WiFi and televisions are found on most ranches, but they are not available in the guest rooms, further encouraging guests to enjoy the great outdoors at its best.  To help visitors kick their technology habits, many locations offer riding instruction for those new to horseback riding, swimming pools and hot tubs, kid’s programs, hiking, and fishing.
