Tanque Verde RanchTucson, Ariz.
Established in 1868, Tanque Verde Ranch is recognized as the last luxurious outpost of the Old West, providing guests authentic dude ranch experiences. So you can get as rustic, or not, as you choose. This gem is spread amid the rolling Rincon Mountains. Accommodations are scattered throughout the 60,000-acre property, with individual casitas, as well as cozy salas.
With nearly 200 horses onsite, horseback activities are among the property’s most favored pastimes. Who doesn’t want a selfie with a horse? And folks aren’t riding just to ride. One of the most popular outings is the Breakfast Ride, up to the old homestead, where you’ll be greeted with homemade fluffy pancakes.
