Many “family” vacations are actually “kid vacations” – not to say you don’t enjoy Legoland or a Disney Cruise, but you enjoy it because the kids are happy, not because you like being on a boat with a big mouse.  So when we found the family vacation where the whole family can  participate in and adore every single activity, we were thrilled.  Meet your family vacation for the next dozen years or so – The Alisal Guest Ranch.  Click through our flipbook to see why it’s our pick for family vacation of the year.

Cowboy Up

Alisal is an old cowboy ranch – a working one that dates back to 1843. It’s been a Guest Ranch since the 1950’s, and whether you want to spend the weekend riding the range (or taking your first horseback lesson), eating at a campfire, catching fish, being pampered at the spa, listening to the roosters crow, reading a book by the pool, gathering eggs, playing an 18 hole private golf course, tasting local wines or hiking, you’ll all find the perfect activities.
