The wild west is alive and thriving in the northeastern corner of Wyoming at the scenic and historic Paradise Guest Ranch. Founded in the late 1890’s, this ranch takes guests back in time to a place where cattle drives, log cabins, and mountain vistas reign supreme.

This is old fashioned fun for families and friends alike. Spend a week at Paradise Guest Ranch horseback riding, fly-fishing for rainbow trout, and hiking to remote destinations with unparalleled scenery. The ranch is easy access from the international airport in Billings, Montana, and also offers shuttles from regional airports in Sheridan, Gillette, and Casper, Wyoming.

Here’s a three-day itinerary featuring some of the best things to do in Big Bend, Texas.
