Ranches are a great alternative vacation option. You still get away from the hustle and bustle of normal life, but, instead of laying on a beach, you are treated to the slow-moving life of a ranch. There are many adventures to be had on a ranch, including horseback riding, hiking, working with animals and helping with the day-to-day operations.


The first decision is deciding what you want out of a ranch vacation. Similar to other vacations, not all ranch trips are the same. Some are more hard work than others and some are focused on sightseeing and enjoying the great outdoors. There are also many locations for ranch vacations — in mountainous regions, forests or deserts.


Make sure to pack sensibly. Most likely, there are lots of physical activities happening on a ranch, so clothing should be durable and ready for all kinds of weather. Many ranches include horseback riding and this can be a toll on your muscles if you’re not used to riding for hours at a time. Pack appropriate medication and aids for muscle pain.


Ranches are a fun way to experience a different way of life and are enjoyable. This type of vacation is a fantastic alternative to the norm and will leave you with great memories.

Ristorante Consorzio, Turin, Italy

Ristorante Consorzio is almost as famous for its selection of fine cheeses as its delicious wines. After one evening dining here I understand why. The selections of both are extensive and top-notch, and feature a variety of each from around the country.
