Top Travel Trends: 5 Reasons Rawah Should be Your Next Multigen Family Vacation
For the eighth year in a row, multigenerational family travel has landed itself high on the list of top global travel trends.(1) Families all around the world are discovering that visiting a new place, experiencing “firsts” together, and making memories are great ways to build and strengthen relationships unlike many other day-to-day experiences. And in an increasingly mobile world, while more families are living far apart with fewer opportunities to regularly be together, group trips are an exciting and meaningful way to motivate everyone to end up in the same place at the same time.
At Rawah Ranch, we understand the growing prioritization of family travel and offer the perfect multigenerational vacation venue for families seeking new and meaningful experiences:
Explore a New Destination – Experience the spectacular beauty of the rugged Colorado wilderness from the heart of the Roosevelt National Forest. Surrounded by more than 70,000 acres of almost undiscovered wilderness, visiting Rawah also means an up-close experience of the surrounding national forest and abundant wildlife. Spot moose, elk, bears, bald eagles and more on a Wildlife Truck Safari during your stay.
Cross This Off Your Bucket List – When’s the last time you made s’mores, sang songs and laughed to cowboy stories around a roaring bonfire under the starry mountain sky with the whole family gathered around? If “never” is your answer, we can provide. Activities like this, and a host of others, are waiting to be crossed off your bucket list at Rawah Ranch.
Experience the Authentic All-American West – It’s not often you can get up-close exposure to a historical heritage that’s long since disappeared from modern society’s daily experience. But taking a trip to Rawah is like stepping back in time to the All-American West known for its wild and adventurous allure. With hours in the saddle, chic rustic log cabin accommodations, and events like an early morning cowboy breakfast cookout, you’ll get a taste of the real life of the All-American cowboy when you join us at Rawah.
Find Rest and Relaxation – One of our greatest offerings is the quiet and solitude the ranch affords with its location in the breathtaking Laramie River Valley. Over an hour from the nearest town, the ranch is fantastically remote, and offers the perfect venue to disconnect from technology and the busyness of regular life and reconnect with your loved ones. Most afternoons we find our guests relaxing in rocking chairs in the shade on the deck of the Lodge, iced tea in hand and watching the hummingbirds buzz from one feeder to the next.
Gain Enriching Experiences – At Rawah, we offer the chance to try things you never have before. Maybe that means getting on a horse for the first time or enjoying one of Chef’s cooking classes with your adult children. Perhaps it’s just taking time to sit and enjoy your family’s company in a unique and awe-inspiring setting while we handle all the details of the experience.
Regardless of age or interests, a guest ranch vacation offers varied activities for everyone in the family. We have it all: from overnight pack trips campouts for the adventure seekers, to cowboy crafts and games for the younger ones, or rocking on the front porch for the laid-back relaxation chasers.
So, whether it’s a family reunion, destination wedding, hallmark celebration, or annual adventure retreat among friends, Rawah provides the setting for making memories that will last a lifetime. With exceptional staff, an unbeatable location, and experiences that can’t be found anywhere else, let us welcome you and yours to Rawah for your next unforgettable vacation.
We can’t wait to welcome you home!
