Getting together with girlfriends for an evening out is always fun but wouldn't it be great to go somewhere for a weekend or even a week together to spend time catching up, making new memories and trying something new other than lying on the beach drinking over-priced, calorie-laden Piña Coladas? A dude ranch vacation may not be the first thing that comes to mind, but listen up ladies you don’t know what you’re missing out on until you try a Women’s Only Cowgirl Getaway.
Why Pick a Women’s Only Cowgirl Getaway for your Next Vacation There are many reasons to choose a vacation tailored just for you and your besties at a dude ranch. It is an ideal opportunity to leave behind demanding schedules and commitments, if only for a little while, and to reconnect with the special women in your life, whether it’s your mother, sister or best friends. A Cowgirl Getaway will provide you with the opportunity to expand your horizons and perhaps take you out of your comfort zone which can be an exciting experience. There are lots of activities to choose from like horseback riding, hiking, kayaking, and of course spa treatments just to name a few. So pack your bags and get ready for a fun-filled dude ranch vacation at one of the following guest ranches that offer Cowgirl Getaways.
