Have you heard of glamping?  “Glamping” is short for glamorous camping and has become very popular over the past decade.  

If your camping essentials include such things as a real mattress, running water, and an actual toilet, glamping may be the best camping compromise.  Of course, during the pandemic, we still want to create cherishable memories with family and friends and glamping may be the perfect vacation alternative.  Particularly if you want to visit a scenic destination but also want to be able to truly relax and enjoy your vacation in comfort.


A camping trip can be relaxing and enjoyable but it also comes with the unwelcomed stress of preparation for camping and ensuring that all required gear is packed and then setting up the campsite.   Plus for camping vacations, we need to compromise on amenities such as a cozy, comfy bed and clean bathrooms.  The plus with camping is that you get to vacation in a secluded and sometimes unconventional location in the middle of nature and spend your evenings admiring the star-studded sky.  Wouldn’t it be amazing to enjoy all the perks of camping without compromising on comfort?  That is exactly what the glamping experience is all about.


Here are a number of reasons why you should seriously consider a glamping experience this year:


1. A Stress-Free and Carefree Vacation

Many glamping properties offer a number of luxury services and facilities such as a 24x7 spa, breakfast in bed, luxury tent furniture with full beds, and many other luxuries.  Plus you get to enjoy all these luxuries while being in the middle of nature, enjoying that gorgeous lake, or sky-high mountains.  What better way to relax and unwind during a vacation?


2. Will Not Burn a Hole in Your Pocket
