Baby Animals

This one hardly requires explanation. There is just something about a baby animal that makes your heart go pitter patter.  And if you’ve never been around baby goats… let’s just say, you’re missing out. Cutest.Things. Ever. But whether or not there are any baby animals running about on your particular trip, their petting zoo is full of animals who LOVE to be LOVED on!

Dancing

What’s a girl’s night out or weekend without dancing? Kick up your heels (or boots) on the saloon dancefloor to the rhythm of a live band. Saturday nights after the rodeo are especially fun!

Glamping

Camping typically brings to mind thoughts of a dead cellphone battery, mosquito bites, bathing in a creek and a night spent sleeping on the ground, or a cot at best. That’s SO not the case with glamping (glamorous camping)! We’re talking A/C, restrooms, REAL beds and electricity. Yes ma’am.  You and your girlfriends can take real showers, stay up all night in bed talking about the fun you had that day and posting photos to Instagram on your fully charged phones! Whether you choose Westgate’s traditional or teepee glamping, each option has community areas, which means you and your girls can keep to yourselves, or join another group for s’mores around a campfire. Yay for new friends!

Bonfires

Grab a s’mores kit at the ranch’s General Store, put on something cozy and settle in for an evening of girl talk. Was that cute cowboy at the rodeo single? If you all pitched in, could you afford a horse? Would it be wise to trade in your Corolla for a truck?

Horses

I don’t know what it is about girls and horses, but most of us have loved or wanted a pony at one point in time during our lives.  It’s time to climb up in the saddle and make a dream come true with your favorite ladies.

Tough Girl Stuff

Learn to shoot a bow and arrow, shoot a gun or bait your own hook, because you’re a strong independent woman who knows how to have a good time… or maybe it’s because you’re a daddy’s girl.

Selfies

If you don’t get an amazingly awesome selfie on an adventure, did it really happen? This is a worry you can leave at home, because whether it’s a selfie riding a horse for the first time, sitting shotgun with the captain of an airboat or holding a week old baby goat, your social media status is sure to take off and inspire jealousy amongst your followers. #sorrynotsorry

Of course there are SO many more reasons you and your girls will enjoy Westgate River Ranch Resort and Rodeo, after all, it’s a resort! See what else they have here.
