Looking for last minute deals and steals for a memorable Labor Day Weekend getaway?? Maybe you are ready to escape Georgia for a bit, touring some of our neighboring states. We’ve got a list of six unique ways to get out of Atlanta during Labor Day or Fall Break.
Westgate River Ranch Resort
Head just one-hour south of Orlando to the cattle lands where you’ll find 1,700 acres of luxurious Dude Ranch excitement at Westgate River Ranch. The Ranch offers cowboy-themed accommodations ranging from two-bedroom cabins to glamping tents (that we love!!) to a rail car or a lodge suite. Go horseback riding, swimming, or play golf. Kids will love the petting zoo, hayrides, nature hikes and swamp buggy rides. Did we also mention archery, mini-golf, rock climbing, skeet and a zip line?? It’s also home to the longest-running Saturday night championship rodeo in the state, featuring trick riding, bull riding and barrel racing!
From September 2-4, guests can stay in the Ranch’s spacious western-themed guest rooms and suites, starting at $199 per night, and receive two tickets to the Saturday night championship rodeo, a s’mores kit for a sweet treat around the nightly campfire and a free kid’s ticket to the adventure park for every adult ticket purchased.
