‘Glamping’ – The Latest Camping Experience
Lately there’s been a growing trend of ‘glamping’ – glamorous camping. What is it you ask, well, we’re talking fabulous teepees, tents and “Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous” style cabins and lodges, with heated floors and the stuff you have at home only fancier– but mixed in with mother nature.
Most of us who go normal camping, go for the hard, rocky floors, cold nights, and sitting by the fire with smores. We like to get away from the daily grind and away from home; maybe spend some quality family time, or just have a couple’s retreat. The fun part about camping is making do with what you have, relying on mother nature to provide you with what you forgot or chose not to bring and bringing people together.
With these new glamping sites, I guess you can do the same thing except now in a fancier setting.
