Best Place to Go Glamping In the U.S.

As much as I like to think of myself as someone with a side for roughin’ it in the great outdoors, the luxury-loving side of me seems to be a bit more dominant these days. The idea of waking up surrounded by nature is wonderful, minus the bugs and sleeping on rocks. Soaking in a jacuzzi and looking out to the beautiful landscape is more my style. “Glamping” seems to be the perfect option to meld these two worlds together. Even more so, the idea of giving me a chance to kick up my feet while the kids can spend all day away from their iPads and in nature sounds wonderful.

If you’re considering a glamping trip of your own, check out these amazing options America has to offer. From rustic cabins to tents perched above the Sonoma Serengeti, these luxurious getaways give camping a whole new meaning.
