Rancho de los Caballeros
Where it is: Wickenburg, AZ (just outside of Phoenix)
What it is: Talk about a dude ranch; Rancho de los Caballeros is an all-inclusive resort that gives families a taste of the ranching life. There's plenty of horseback riding to be had, but there's also golf, moonlit nature walks, swimming, and more. Dinner is served from a chuck wagon, and there are babysitters available to give parents a break during their stay.
Fun kid activities: The Caballeros Kid's Program gives kids of all ages a place to swim, play tennis, do arts and crafts, and more each morning.
