There comes a time when we have to let our childhood dreams go—often when we realize that cowboy, astronaut, movie star, or Tarzan aren't viable career paths. But that doesn't mean we can't revisit them once in a while.

Childhood fantasy: Cowboy
Destination: Dunton Hot Springs, Colorado
It's entirely possible to reach Dunton Hot Springs in Colorado by car, but you might prefer to mosey on in atop your trusty steed. Located in an old ghost town in a remote alpine valley near Telluride, many of the resort's 13 luxurious hand-hewn log cabins come with their own private hot spring and cold plunge. After you've spent the day horseback riding, fly fishing, or rafting on the Animas and Dolores rivers, you can kick up your spurs in the rustic saloon and dance hall.
