Coffee that can float a horseshoe isn't very indicative of dude ranches (tourist ranches) these days. Gourmet cookouts, activities ranging from golf to hayrides and swimming, and comfortable lodges are more in style. It is wise to compare ranches and their activities as weekend cowboys can choose from traditional ranches that include real cattle drives, or resort style accommodation for the family. Make sure to include a horse ride to hills 'over yonder' as the Arizona landscape is made to be gaped over and ridden through. The Arizona Dude Ranch Association can help city slickers choose holidays that suit all ladies and fellers.
