When it comes to camping, you usually fall into one of two groups: either you love it or you hate it. Those who love it can’t wait to escape to nature, breathe fresh air, and partake in outdoor adventures. If you fall into the other camp, though, the thought of sleeping on the ground, fighting off insects, and lugging a tent, sleeping bags, food, bug spray, cooking equipment, and more — in other words, roughing it — seems like a really bad way to spend a weekend. If you’re getting itchy just thinking about the bugs, glamping was meant for you.
Glamping is the modern meld of nature and luxury. The prep and setup are taken care of for you; and all you need to do to is show up. Glamping, or glamorous camping, isn’t just tents and yurts. You’ll find luxurious outdoor adventures in treehouses, shipping containers, eco-lodges, and other creative abodes.
