The Pacific Northwest is known for its beautiful nature and ability to make a camping trip feel like an adventure as you pitch your tent out in the woods, or find a spot of soft sand on the beach for a night under the stars. But for those who aren’t quite ready to make the commitment toward the full experience of “roughing it,” glamping has become the ideal alternative to get in touch with Mother Nature, and Glamping Hub, the Airbnb of luxury camping rentals, provides some great options to get started.
The first stop when visitors arrive into Washington state is often Seattle, but the real beauty of the region lies just a short, 45-minute drive away: Whidbey Island. This seahorse-shaped isle in Puget Sound is one of the largest islands in the continental United States and transforms into the perfect getaway once the weather gets nice. But even with the summer rush that happens every year, the island doesn’t have many accommodations available to house all the out-of-towners, so visitors must turn to the great outdoors to find a place to stay.
