Westgate River Ranch – a Dude ranch that offers a unique upscale vacation destination just outside of Central Florida. Hayrides and s’mores around the fire await at Westgate River Ranch, where a special bed and breakfast package tops off an ideal fall getaway an hour south of Orlando.
On most stays before Dec. 24 booked before Oct. 31, guests can stay in a variety of spacious, newly renovated western-themed accommodations, from lodge suites to glamping (glamorous camping) tents, starting at $195. The package also includes a $25 resort credit for breakfast or other ranch activities, golf cart to explore some of the Ranch’s 1,700 acres of land and one s’mores kit for a sweet treat around the nightly campfire.
Tantalizing dining options range from the Westgate Smokehouse Grill overlooking the Kissimmee River to the Deli at the General Store for quick, order-to-go items – perfect for adventurers not wanting to take too much time out of their day for a meal – or an old-fashioned dinner hayride complete with breathtaking views of Florida’s countryside and a singing cowboy.
On the same land where America’s first cowboys roamed, Westgate River Ranch offers a variety of activities: an authentic cattle drive, horseback riding, trap and skeet shooting, archery, mechanical bull, swamp buggy and airboat rides. Weekend guests can also attend the longest-running Saturday night championship rodeo in Florida, with trick riding, bull riding, calf roping and barrel racing, followed by line dancing and a street party at the River Ranch Saloon.
