Exciting events take place year round in the Rocky Mountains. For a true taste of the west, attend a rodeo or a cattle drive.

Whatever your liking, you’ll find an abundance of events in the Real America! Visit the individual state’s sites for more information about events and dates.

Guest Ranches and Cattle Drives

If you want to plan a true western holiday, guest ranches and cattle drives are a must! You may ride a trail through breathtaking mountain scenery or help real cowboys move cattle to better pasture.

Guest Ranches

Some ranches are located in mountainous areas, with spectacular views and an abundance of wildlife. Ranches located in the plains and grasslands also sport abundant wildlife, and views of the vast, open prairie are truly magnificent. Activities and amenities vary on the type of ranch you choose to visit.

Cattle Drives
One of the truly unique experiences offered in the Rocky Mountain region is being able to jump in and take part in exciting activities like cattle drives. A real Western cattle drive allows you to ride the trails with experienced cowboys, moving the herd and chasing down strays. You’ll sleep out under the stars. The day’s activities are sure to build up an appetite, so meals are hearty out on the trail. Big breakfasts and western style dinners are a specialty! Contact your nearest RMI office to get more information on a one of a kind opportunity like a cattle drive or guest ranch experience.
