Activities for every member of the family can be found at any of these spectacular California dude ranches: horseback riding, fly fishing, golfing, wildlife viewing, tennis, hiking, mountain biking, horseshoes, games for the whole family, and even yoga classes! Many dude ranches have facilities for weddings and other special events.

Imagine spending the day surfing, playing volleyball, or swimming at a Californian beach, then relaxing at night eating barbeque and watching the sun set over the mountainous landscape. All this is possible at Californian dude ranches because of the optimal weather conditions.

California may be known for its’ big cities and glamorous movie stars, but you can also live like a movie star one day, and stay at a local dude ranch and take in mountain biking, barbeques, and swimming, and the natural landscapes the next day.
