Camping for Non-Campers

5 Reasons Why Glamping is the Perfect Family Getaway

Let us guess- you love the idea of camping: unplugging, connecting with nature, and creating lasting memories of outdoor adventures with the people you love. However, you’re not so sure that you can get behind the idea of sleeping in an uncomfortable tent, having no place to shower after a day of sweaty hiking, and worrying about finding a place to charge your phone so that you can snap photos of your adventures throughout your trip. We get it. Enter glamping: “glamorous camping.” Now you can enjoy nature’s bliss without sacrificing the creature comforts of home. Here are five reasons why you need to plan a glamping weekend ASAP!   

1. You Don’t Need to Sacrifice All the Amenities of Home 

Indulge in cooking breakfast on a fully equipped stove, enjoy a refreshing shower after a day of outdoor activities, and drift off to sleep in a comfortable bed with fresh sheets. With glamping, you can savor the comforts of home while immersing yourself in nature. Glamping sites offer a wide range of cozy amenities, such as bathrooms, showers, kitchens, living rooms, towels, linens, and even TVs. Say goodbye to the notion of “roughing it” – camping can now be synonymous with relaxation and luxury.
