A few days at The Inn at Dos Brisas and we guarantee your restless adolescent will come away with some bona fide cowboy skills. First up, horseback riding lessons: This 300-acre Texas ranch is home to several chargers, ready to get your computer whiz off his laptop and into the great outdoors. Later he can cruise the property by mountain bike, soaring over the rolling meadows and tree-lined groves on carefully placed pathways, and fly-fishing lessons will have him up at dawn to see the sun rise.
Both younger and older siblings will enjoy hanging out in the (unstaffed) pool with Mom and Dad, or playing board games and cards in the Spanish mission style guest room casitas. The whole family can also take a ride in the Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star hotel's carriage. In the evenings, borrow a telescope from the front desk and gaze at the stars in the clear Texas sky, or roast marshmallows or smores by the pool or on your patio. The resort isn’t really set up for toddlers and babies, so we don’t suggest planning a vacation here with a baby in tow.
