The wide open spaces of Wyoming have a tempting appeal for folks who just want to get away from the hustle and bustle of crowded city life. If you're planning a trip out West to the nation's least populous state, you should definitely consider the Lodge & Spa at Brush Creek Ranch, which was named the No. 1 resort in the country by Condé Nast Traveler.
The resort sits on 30,000 acres of unspoiled land in the Platte River Valley, and the views are truly astounding.
Brush Creek Ranch opened in the 1800s and is still a working cattle ranch.
Visitors to the ranch can go horseback riding, fly fishing, big game hunting, as well as skiing, just to name a few activities. Guests can also try out campfire dining for a true Western experience.
The resort also has several gourmet dining options all offering Rocky Mountain heritage cuisine. Meals also come with your stay.
For large groups, the Magee Homestead site sleeps up to 27 guests and includes nine historic cabins and pool grotto. Also, the homestead comes with your own concierge service. Another perk of Brush Creek Ranch is their luxurious spa.
Bet you never realized the wild West could be so relaxing.
