Family Day at Enchanted Springs Ranch

My family and I received six tickets to Enchanted Springs Ranch in exchange for this blog post. All the views and opinions here are completely my own! Information about Enchanted Springs Ranch is from their brochure and website.

My husband has a new work schedule giving him a four day weekend twice a month, yay! We decided to take advantage of one of his weekends off by packing it full of fun stuff around San Antonio. Saturday we drove up to Boerne, Texas to visit Enchanted Springs Ranch. To be honest I thought it would keep my kids attention for an hour or so then they’d be ready to leave. However I was happily surprised to see they LOVED it there. They didn’t want to miss a single thing and even asked to do some things twice. We had already made plans for dinner or we would have stayed until they closed.

First we watched a gun shoot out on Main Street. Shoot out on main street…

Followed by a 15 minute tractor ride around the 47 acre working ranch. Along they ride we saw deer, antelope, horses, long horn cows, zebras, turkeys, fish, turtles and much more!1-tractor ride

As soon as we returned from the tractor ride we hurried over to buy the kids tickets to ride on Lady the horse. (Tickets are $2 each but completely worth the experience for the children to ride on a horse walking around the western town!)1-horse riding

Afterwards we were able to wander around the western streets to see all the little “shops” (they were facades but gave a good idea of what each would be used for if they were still running). We ended up in  Fort Baete Kids Korral where we played and took funny pictures until the next show started.Wandering the streets1-IMG_5320

Last we went in the Saloon for the Pistol Packin’ Paula show! Which included Paula not only slinging and spinning pistols but also her skills at using a bull whip as well. We all were impressed with her fun show! Pistol Packin’ Paula Show

We truly enjoyed our time at Enchanted Springs Ranch!! The staff was all very friendly and helpful to all of the guests. It was a hot day but there was plenty of shade all around the ranch. Before we left they told us about their Chuck Wagon Dinner Shows held during the summer on Wednesday nights and their Cowboy Christmas that will be open the Saturday and Sunday before Christmas. We honestly can’t wait to go to the Cowboy Christmas PLUS the hubby and I hope to catch a Chuck Wagon Dinner before the end of summer! (The hubby and I actually held our reception at a chuck wagon dinner in Colorado so this is a great way to celebrate those memories!)1-IMG_5069

  1. Lori, what great photos! It looks like so much fun, and it’s educational — a chance to learn hands-on about history and nature.
