9. Cattle Driving in Wyoming

Looking for a real Western-style adventure? Spend a week on a working cattle ranch! Ride horseback on the open range and help move cattle to greener pastures. Genuine cowboys will teach you everything you need to know about horseback riding and rounding up the cattle. Take in the beautiful western scenery, frontier history and diverse wildlife.

Depending on which ranch you choose, your accommodations will range from luxurious to rustic — but you’ll always be met with down home hospitality. It’s a great way to get away from the daily grind and completely immerse yourself in ranch living. Tip: At $1,000+ per person for a week (depending on the ranch), this outdoor adventure is definitely on the more expensive side.

Visit Wyoming’s tourism site for more information, and to choose between a number of ranches and vacation packages.
