West Palm Beach, Florida (PRWEB) September 15, 2014
Many travelers dream of being a cowboy or cowgirl for a day, experiencing life as the pioneers and cowboys of yesteryear. Global Vacation Ventures, a concierge country club travel agency, is revealing some incredible ways to experience the Wild West this September.
1. Horseback Riding
There are plenty of breathtaking trail rides that travelers can ride down this fall, viewing all of the foliage that is changing colors in a unique way. One of the most famous and well-known horseback riding trains is through Zion National Park and the Grand Canyon National Park. Both of these National Parks offer the chance to travel by horseback through country that pioneers rode through while they were exploring all of America.
2. Panning for Gold
In 1848, the Gold Rush hit California, causing thousands of settlers to “Go West or Bust,” chasing dreams of becoming rich through finding gold. Today, vacationers can still pan for gold in the same way that the original settlers did by visiting locations such as Jamestown, California, home of the Jimtown Mining Camp that was established in 1849. Here, visitors can pan for and keep the gold that they find, watch western reenactments, Old West gunfights and more, shares Global Vacation Ventures.
3. Dine Like a Cowboy
One of the favorite pastimes of cowboys in the Old West was to sit around a campfire, cook and tell stories. In Jackson Hole, Wyoming, and many other places in the western part of the United States, vacationers can get a taste of the Wild West cooked in an authentic way using Dutch ovens and open campfires. Dishes range from biscuits to fresh-caught salmon and steak to baked beans and other delicious dishes.
4. Visit a Ghost Town
Global Vacation Ventures shares that one of the best ways to experience life in the Old West is to visit a ghost town, where some of the structures that were built more than a hundred years ago still stand today. Ghost towns can be found throughout Colorado, Arizona, California and several other states. Some have even been restored and turned into tourist attractions.
