You gotta love a place that boasts its own Kid Wranglers. These babysitters in boots may not round 'em up and rope 'em in, but they do teach horseback riding basics and fill tiny bellies with nutritious food, while mom and dad enjoy a wine tasting class or dinner à deux. From hayrides to marshmallow roasts, Vista Verde's all-inclusive getaways are filled with traditional ranch activities and a few unusual extras, such as gold panning and antique fire truck rides into town for hand-cranked ice cream. The ranch has separate programs for younger children and teens, and if you'd like to come in the winter, activities include cross-country skiing, snowshoe outings and sleigh rides. Just outside Steamboat Springs, this working ranch offers traditional lodge accommodations and private cabins, multi-course dining events, hands-on cooking classes and outdoor adventures for all ages.
