Experience one of the last untouched pieces of Florida wilderness at Westgate River Ranch Resort & Rodeo – an authentic Florida dude ranch that lies just one hour South of Orlando in Polk County, FL – where guests can return to the days of "Old Florida" when the state was home to cowboys and cattle ranchers. The Ranch, which lies on 1,700 acres overlooking the scenic Kissimmee River, completed a multi-million dollar renovation in October 2013 and features horseback riding, an award-winning Saturday night rodeo and much more. It's the ideal destination for an unforgettable family vacation getaway!
Fridays in December, experience the holidays with an old-fashioned, tractor-pulled hayride at Westgate River Ranch. This 45-minute hayride features a festive ride around the ranch and ends with hot chocolate, candy canes and a small craft.
