Taking a dude ranch vacation can be a great stress reliever no matter when you go, but to really unwind, many families are deciding to leave the kids behind on Adult Only Dude Ranch Vacations. In addition to a week without the kids around, Adult Only Weeks often include added perks for adults, like wine tastings, cocktail receptions, dancing, spa activities, cooking classes, yoga, nature walks and gourmet food.
These special weeks can be great to rekindle romance, enjoy a girlfriend getaway and enjoy more personalized ranch experience.
Many ranches offer Adult Only Weeks in the spring and fall and run travel specials surrounding them. Below is a sampling of dude ranches offering 2013 Adult Weeks. For a more comprehesive listing of ranches with adult only weeks, visit the Equitrekking Vacation Guide.
