The term “glamping” almost sounds like a snide put down from hard-core backpackers towards bougie people in nature.
“Oh, they got BATHROOMS at that place?” a salty, grizzled hiker might say. “That’s not camping. That’s glamping!”
But you know what? Sometimes it’s nice to take a hot shower, sip a couple glasses of wine, and retire into 1,000-thread-count sheets at the end of a long day of outdoor activity. And if that means people who don’t mind going a week without changing t-shirts look down on me, then so be it.
And for families, it’s exponentially easier to expose your kids to the great outdoors when you don’t have to convince them sleeping on an anthill is “fun.” So as you plan your summer vacation, we put our heads together with Pitchup.com, a site that specializes in finding glamping hotspots, to find nine glamping resorts you should seriously consider booking.
