This week I’ve been staying at one of my favorite destinations in the entire world: Tanque Verde Ranch, located in Tucson, Arizona. I refer to it as my home away from home because, well, it is! My family has been coming here since I was born and I have collected countless memories.
Upon arriving to the ranch, you’re greeted by stunning mountains, hundreds of horses, adorable casitas, and authentic wranglers decked out in spurs—chaps and all. Being one of the oldest dude ranches in the United States, the charm is everywhere.
A typical day starts with a hearty breakfast in the main dining room. Then the day is full of outdoor activities such as mountain biking, tennis, horseback riding, fishing, hiking, lounging by the pool, or going to the spa.
Guests come from all over the world and I’ve loved getting to meet so many different people. This week I met two college-aged girls from London who live a block away from where I’ll be studying this summer (Central Saint Martins).
TVR was ranked 8th in Conde Nast Traveler Readers’ Choice Award 2016 for “Best Resorts in the United States". Not surprised!
When I come to the ranch I like to dress with a little western vibe. Below I am wearing a western look that can also be worn when not on a dude ranch.
Note: the photos below were taken on a cloudy day—it’s usually happy trails and blue skies.
