Tanque Verde Ranch, Tucson, Arizona (tanqueverderanch.com), is an all-inclusive upscale dude ranch-resort that takes pride in offering something for everyone in the family. For bonding time, families can partake in the ranch’s newest group activities: Ride and Seek takes teamwork to solve clues and make your way to designated locations found on the ranch map, and Horseshoe Hunt turns the entire resort into a scavenger hunt on horseback; find painted horseshoes and exchange them for prizes.
Tanque Verde’s children’s programs for Buckeroos (ages four to six) and Wranglers (ages seven to eleven) include daily horseback lessons, trail rides, tennis, swimming, games, arts and crafts, hiking, educational nature programs and more. Offered daily from 7AM to 3PM, activities include breakfast and lunch in the children’s dining room. Parents are welcome to accompany their children for activities or pursue other activities.
Tanque Verde Ranch features 76 well-appointed rooms and suites, all with breathtaking views of the Sonoran Desert and Rincon and Catalina Mountains. All-inclusive room rates include all meals, snacks, daily activities and evening entertainment.
