All-inclusive + luxury ranch in one sentence? Hells yes! Most of the time when we think about resorts, we think palm trees, and white sand beaches but what if instead you traded it in for a mountains, an old-fashioned rodeo and epic hiking?

I had my first ranch experience this year when spending time at Zion National Park. Instead finding a rundown motel to stay at, we discovered the Zion Ponderosa Ranch Resort. This gave me a taste of what it’s like to be on a ranch with a multitude of activities. We got to drive ATVs and do skeet shooting. That being said though, our accommodations weren’t exactly luxurious nor were they all-inclusive.
