Located on 60,000 desert acres within the Saguaro National Park of Tucson, Ariz., Tanque Verde Ranch offers a dude ranch experience with a resort-like feel that both adults and children can enjoy, making it a popular destination for families to catch up year after year. Over 75% of the visitors at Tanque Verde Ranch are return guests and the majority of these guests are families, an ode to how this home-away-from home destination is the perfect setting for families to unplug and reconnect with one another while also reconnecting with the great outdoors. When guests book a stay once a year for 10 consecutive years, they are honored as part of the ranch’s famous “Legacy Walk,” which includes a customized brick for each family that has hit the decade mark. The Ranch is visited by families that have been staying for over 50 years, now bringing up to four generations to the property each year. The family that has been revisiting the longest is welcomed by a special custom sign hung up on the Casita that they return to each holiday season. 

For children ages 4-12, the ranch offers a supervised kids program that allows parents to join in an array of fun-filled kids activities with their children or go enjoy adult-time knowing their kids are having an amazing time in a safe environment. As part of the supervised kids program, children will participate in activities ranging from daily horseback riding lessons and horse grooming sessions to arts and crafts and fun-filled games. 

Meanwhile, adults can chose to participate in daily scheduled activities that are part of all-inclusive rates, including horseback riding lessons and activities, trail rides, guided mountain bike and hiking tours, nature walks, educational seminars at the ranch's Nature Center, fishing, tennis and more. The Ranch also has an on-property spa, which offers several rejuvenating treatments or in-room massages. 

Perhaps the best part of the ranch experience is the value included in each stay. The ranch is all-inclusive so each guest receives accommodations, three daily meals and free access to all of the ranch activities listed above, including the kids program. Special activities the whole family can enjoy together that are also part of all-inclusive rates include Cowboy Cookouts under the stars and Breakfast Rides to score the Ranch's famous Blueberry Pancakes.
