These 15 Popular Glamping Spots Prove That Luxury And Nature Can Coexist
With summer in full swing, many of us are looking to plan our next outdoor adventure. And while exploring the great outdoors and taking shelter in any old camping tent is far from the worst thing in the world, some of us would prefer partaking in a more luxurious experience.
That’s where “glamping,” or glamorous camping, comes in. Glamping gives us the opportunity to live amongst even the most untamed of nature without having to sacrifice on comfort. (For example, we won’t have to risk getting poison ivy on our butts while peeing in the woods.)
If you’re looking for inspiration to plan your next glamping getaway without leaving the country, look no further. Here are this summer’s 15 most-booked U.S. glamping listings on Glamping Hub. And even if you’re currently not looking to book a trip, it’s still fun to window shop…
