The perfect fusion between outdoors and relaxation, at Yosemite National Park your cowboy can choose between doing the day hike or kickin’ his boots up and hangin’ up his cowboy hat for a minute.

Guinness Brewery

This is the best place to venture to for those who have never been abroad yet. After your cowboy takes the brewery tour of Ireland’s trademark beer, he can have a pint (or two) at some of Dublin’s famous pubs.


Sure, we have all heard about the famed Oktoberfest, but how many people actually get the chance to go and see it for themselves? Between beer and bratwurst, your cowboy will have the time of his life in Munich.
