Debbe’s goal is to visit all of the dude ranches in the U.S. and beyond and feature all of the wonderful amenities each has to offer. This season will take viewers on exciting adventures from white water rapids in Colorado, mountain biking in Arizona to exploring the petroglyphs in Montana.  Here are some of her favorite places in the country…

My favorite place in the U.S. to visit is…The state of Colorado. I absolutely love Colorado. It’s surrounded by these gorgeous mountains. If I had to narrow it down I would have to say Breckenridge but anywhere in Colorado.

The first thing I do when I go to (Colorado) is I go to… is take a deep breath of fresh air.

Everyone should visit …(Colorado)… at least once because personally it’s one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever been to and I’ve been to a lot of beautiful places. But it stands out so much because during any of the seasons you are filled with so many options of activities, whether it be white water rafting or snow-skiing or mountain climbing.

Colorado…is a pleasant surprise…because it’s so different. There’s so much to do, the water is clean, the air is fresh. You can do everything from fly fishing to white water rafting, incredible hikes, horseback riding and so much more.

My favorite restaurant in the U.S. is…Tuscany in Westlake Village because no matter when you go the food is consistently the best.

The best place to find sushi is…at Nozomi in San Diego. I love to spa next door at the Aqua Day Spa and every time I’ve gone there the sushi chef creates the most amazing dishes for me at an affordable price.

Some great towns people may not know about to visit are…Del Mar or Encinitas in San Diego County.

My favorite airport in the US is… Durango in Colorado because it is so small and the rent-a-car is right next to the baggage claim and the cars are waiting for you right outside the door, it’s the best.
