Saddle Up for the Dude Ranch

Monday, January 26th, 2009

For the ultimate Western experience while you are in Texas, book the Ranch Stay Western Package in Grandview Texas.  This package includes an overnight stay at the ranch and a full country breakfast.  Lunch is included as well.  Other activities around the ranch include playing horseshoes, paintball laser tag, and stocked pond fishing.  The ranch is situated in an 1880s Western town where you can still see real cowboys herding cattle while on horseback.

After breakfast, you will go on a beautiful trail ride and have a roping lesson or go skeet shooting.  If you have never gone skeet shooting it is worth it to try at least once.  You may be even better at it than you think! Later on you can take a trip over to the adult only lounge to take a break and mingle.

The ranch is only 35 minutes from downtown Fort Worth and Dallas, so it is very convenient but far enough away from the city to give you a real look into cowboy life.  You can stay for more than one night, but ticket prices are per overnight stay.  The kids will love this look into the past and they will get to feel like cowboys for a day.  So, the next time they decide to play Cowboys & Indians they will have more insight into their characters.

Be prepared to have the time of your life on this trip.  There will be dancing, hayrides, cookouts, andhorseback riding which are all fun activities for the whole family.  For those bold enough to give it a shot, there is also a mechanical bull to ride.      To book your stay on the ranch, visit www.bigdtours.com and check out all the other fun things to do while you are in the area.

Living it Up in D-Town

Thursday, November 6th, 2008

Dallas is the third-largest city in Texas and the ninth-largest city in the US.  It is home to the Dallas Cowboys and the well-known Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders.  When traveling to the Dallas area, it is a great idea to plan ahead and book spaces on some of the many tours and activities offered.  You can take an adventure tour, go duck hunting, or fly over the area in a helicopter.  The possibilities go on and on.

For a unique experience, take Keith & Margo’s Ultimate Mystery Dinner Adventure at Old Mill Inn in Dallas.  This interactive show is a great nighttime activity to take loved ones to on a special occasion, and the performers are happy to custom write a part incorporating that into the festivities.  Or, for a romantic twist, take your partner on a Classic Gondola Ride in Dallas.  The ride will take an hour, and this is a great opportunity to spend some quality time with your loved one on an anniversary or any other day.  For an added touch, you can pay to have a personalized message in a bottle made, and it will appear next to your partner at some point during the cruise.

Other travel ideas include goose, turkey, and hog hunting in Seymour, Texas and a visit to a Texas dude ranch.  With so many country western themed activities, you will truly feel like a cowboy or cowgirl by the end of your trip! Just remember to bring along your own gear on the hunting excursions and, as always, have a rootin’ tootin’ good time!
