The warm weather is upon us and we’ll all be looking for ways to spend more time outdoors. Camping is a fun activity that allows us to do so. It allows us to enjoy nature even after the sun goes down so we can sleep under the stars.
But camping requires a willingness to, as they say, “rough it.” And some are just not willing to do that. That’s why they invented glamping, also known as “luxury camping.”
Glamping has become so popular that there are campsites all over the country that offer luxury camping accommodations. We’re going to tell you about 14 of them.
1) Bellfire Tipi – Roxbury, New York
What makes camping in Roxbury, New York so great is the spectacular show that the stars put on at night. There’s very little light pollution in the small town located in the Catskill mountains which allows the stars to really shine.
