When you envision yourself or your family vacationing, do you consider fighting ticket lines, elbowing your way through attractions and bored, fussy kids to be fun? Sure, theme parks and other typical vacation spots are memorable and can be enjoyable...for a day or two. The novelty wears off pretty quickly though as you fight for a parking spot while entertaining a tired, bored child. The problem with tightly scheduled vacations is that...well, they are tightly scheduled. Think about it this way: Any vacation where the fun happens at a place that is apart from your accommodations is going to cause stress, especially if you have kids. After waking up in a hotel, you bundle your family into the car, drive to where the fun starts, pay for parking, unpack what you need for a whole day, load everybody up with all the day's necessities and then you get to...start having fun?...nope...wait in line! Disney alternatives are available and Black Mountain Colorado Dude Ranch is a great choice. Listed as one of the top 20 dude ranches in the world, we know you'll have a fantastic time at this unconventional theme park, as the theme here is family—yours and ours! A typical day at Black Mountain Colorado Dude Ranch is one that you control. You set the pace you want—relaxed and slow or go, go, go. The one thing that is consistent, however, is the great time that you and all of our guests enjoy—starting the minute you awake! No long daily commutes, no schedules (unless you want), no trying to find your way around a crowded park, no times of boredom, no lines, no tickets, no cell phones, no elbows! Watch the wonder and excitement in your children's faces as they feed baby animals, ride a horse for the first time, visit a rodeo, camp out under the stars and learn to rope. What about the adult activities you ask? Well, how does gourmet cuisine, trail rides, live music, western dancing, skeet shooting, swimming, relaxing in a hot tub, even participating in a cattle round-up sound? Of course, every activity is optional. Who knows, you may just want to take a day to do absolutely nothing, but enjoy the magnificence of Black Moun tain Ranch! Whichever activities you choose to participate in, there is just nothing better for reconnecting with your family then to share yours with ours! Contact us at Black Mountain Colorado Dude Ranch today and let us help you plan your amazing Disney alternative!
