Time to visit an Arizona ranch!

I’m looking out my window to cold, slashing rain and dreaming of Arizona, where it’s 73° and sunny today in Tucson. Winter is the best season for most Arizona ranches and there’s still plenty of time to sneak away for a warm, sunny dude ranch vacation. Arizona ranches have so much to offer. There are those that focus on being casual and family-friendly, like the Grapevine Canyon Ranch in Pearce. Others boast elegant, upscale facilities, such as Hidden Meadow Ranch near Greer and the Rancho de los Caballeros in Wickenburg. Many offer warm and colorful southwestern architecture, like White Stallion Ranch outside Tucson and Kay El Bar Ranch in Wickenburg (shown in photo).
And all offer value options. Wondering which ranch to choose? There’s plenty of help. On the Ranchweb page, go to Selecting A Ranch and scroll through all the options that various ranches have to offer, from riding, fishing, and cattle drives to spas and luxury options. Or just click hereAnother useful tool is on the Arizona Dude Ranch Association website. There, a page lets you compare prices, seasons, programs, and facilities; all various attributes of all their Arizona member ranches in a handy chart form.
Just don’t wait too long. Prime time is now! Stay tuned for next week’s series on Arizona ranches.

    I whole heartedly recommend the Kay El Bar guest ranch in Wickenburg, AZ. I just returned from my 22nd trip. The history, authenticity, size, and phylosophy atracted me to the KLB. It was the magic that brought me back. From the beginning I was impressed with the authentic western decor, the staff’s dedication, the owner’s committment, the quality of the riding, the great food, and the cammaradarie I enjoyed with the other guests. The atmosphere and accomodations are perfect for families, couples, singles, seniors and girl friends. Every effort is made to match rider the horse to ensure a safe and fun filled ride. The town of Wickenburg is fun to visit between rides where there’s great shopping, a renowned western museum, and great western events throughout the year.
