Also, we have taken the Couple’s Choice Award from Wedding Wire, Best of our Valley by Arizona Foothills Magazine, and Best of Weddings 2019 by The Knot.

Tanque Verde Ranch strikes gold once again in Condé Nast Traveler’s Reader’s Choice Awards. The Ranch comes in at number 2 Top Resorts in the Southwest. Three places ahead of last year at number 5.  Condé Nast Traveler is a multi-award-winning National Magazine that focuses on the best travel and vacation destinations around the world.

“The Tanque Verde Ranch once again rises to the top, and we could not be happier,” said Cote Family Destination’s Director of Marketing, Frank Soukup. “We have a lot of new additions coming, and we are eager to see substantial growth that will contribute us returning to the number one spot like we did three years ago.”

Tanque Verde Ranch has also been named the Best Dude Ranch in Arizona and continues to live up to the name for their numerous activities and true southern accommodations. The activities at the Ranch are for all ages and include horseback riding, biking, hiking, dining, activities through the kid’s program, and more.
