Virginia Dude Ranches

Virginia dude ranches attract visitors with its rich history (it's the birthplace of eight US presidents), and the fact that the state has five distinct geographical and geological regions. Imagine a morning shopping trip through the Virginia antique shops, and afternoon with the local cowboys helping around the farm, and a relaxing evening cooking a simple dinner in your own private kitchen. These are only some of the activities that you can do at a Virginia Ranch.

At many ranches you can choose an independent schedule and explore on your own, or have the ranch arrange activities for you including horseback riding, fishing trips, and nature hikes. As one of the original 13 American colonies, the state of Virginia enjoys a rich history. From the Blue Ridge Mountains to the Chesapeake Bay to the Shenandoah Valley, this Southeastern state has some truly spectacular scenery that you and your family can experience first-hand at a Virginia dude ranch. Just imagine a log cabin tucked away in a beautiful wooded area, or a historical homestead built in 1801. All this and so much more is available for you and your family on a Virginia ranch vacation.

For many kids, the closest they’ll ever come to rural life is through television or movies. But at a Virginia dude ranch, you can give your kids a taste of what farm life is all about. They’ll learn all about farm animals and even get the opportunity to collect their own fresh eggs for breakfast! A Virginia ranch vacation will be the trip of a lifetime – one that you and your family will remember for years to come!
