It was a dude ranch adventure to remember! 🤠
WAIT! What is a Dude Ranch? They are vacation type ranches offering activities (such as horseback riding) typical of western ranches.
This past weekend we had the opportunity to experience a family dude ranch vacation at Westgate River Ranch. We rolled onto this 1,700-acre ranch south of Orlando, Florida where we were all taught how to ride and care for horses, fish, go the rodeo, shoot archery, and we all enjoyed family-style meals together every night! Oakley and Cali loved pretending that they were cowboys and cowgirls.
We planned our trip here so last minute that they did not have openings on the glamping side of the resort but Westgate glamping looking so fun as they have teepee tents and many other options. Check out Westgate’s glamping here to get an idea!
Our favorite activity of the weekend was the real Florida rodeo and the after party which takes place every Saturday night!
The thing that we kept talking about all weekend was the reality that our culture and environment have changed a little bit since we were kids and that young people and teenagers need more places like Westgate River Ranch. Places were kids can be free to explore, roam, and be free outside. This is definitely one of those places!
