One of the Oldest Traditions of the American West; The Dude Ranch

Dude Ranches first gained popularity in the 1920s, in large part due to the writings of Teddy Roosevelt. Working as a ranch man himself, Roosevelt not only spent time herding cattle, but he also urged Americans to explore for themselves. The popularity of dude ranch increased after WWII and soon became a main tourist attraction in the Rocky Mountain area around the 20's and 30's.

Now a days Dude Ranches have become a staple of American culture, right along side baseball and apple pie. Many tourists are drawn to Dude Ranches for the same reasons they were at the beginning of the 20th century: a sense of adventure, a desire to experience another way of life, and the chance for a wholesome and healthy good time. If you're looking to truly get away from it all, and make memories to last a lifetime, look no further than a Dude Ranch vacation.

Dude Ranches are as varied as the people seeking out the vacation. Accommodations can range from rustic to luxurious, depending on the experience you're looking for. www.E-DudeRanch.com explains that at a Dude Ranch, you can enjoy home cooked meals, cookouts, wagon rides, fishing, and square dances. If you're looking for something a little more modern, many ranches provide amenities such as swimming pools, hot tubs, and game rooms.

E-Dude Ranch is a comprehensive guide to dude ranches in the USA, providing information on popular dude ranch tourist destinations as well as dude ranch employment opportunities. E-DudeRanch.com presents an accessible interface where users can determine what type of dude ranch experience would be best for them.
