The world has already started planning post quarantine getaways. If you would love to trade your sleeping bags with comfortable beds, without compromising the experience of camping, you’ve stumbled upon the right post.
By combining the word glamour and camping, glamping sites are primarily places that give you the best of comforts and perfect wildlife experience. The term first popped up in Google searches around the summer of 2007, and it has taken the world by storm ever since. Multi-course meals, comfortable king-size beds, private tents, bathrooms, and various outdoor activities perfectly define a glamping campsite.
If this is precisely what you’re looking for to get rid of the lockdown stress, don’t look any further. Here’s a combined list of the top five glamping cities in the US that you should consider.
1 – Comfort, Texas
Comfort is a hidden hillside gem with a population of only 2500 people and is just minutes away from San Antonio. It’s known primarily for its beautiful campsites established near the shore of River Guadalupe. The campground offers comfortable cabins, a fire pit for everyone, a grand hall, and a cozy coffee bar. The list doesn’t end there, as adventures would love to enjoy fishing, camping, swimming, mountain biking, and hunting. The town offers beautiful antique shops, golf courses, and a welcoming winery. The city stands true to its name. Your glamping will be comfortable yet amidst nature.
2 – Big Sky, Montana
Big Sky is located close to the Rocky Mountains of Southern Montana and is nestled in between the mountain ranges. Adventures will love Big Sky as it’s well-known for its ski slopes, mountain bike trails, and hiking trails. The biggest highlight, however, is the Yellowstone National Park, which is Southeast of this cozy community. There is an abundance of wildlife, hot springs, and geysers here. Collective Yellowstone offers on service chefs, mind-blowing scenery, stunning interiors, and beautiful private decks. Glamping has never been as glamorous as it is celebrated in Collective Yellowstone. Tents here remain sold out most of the time since it is prevalent. Consider booking in advance to avoid last-minute hassles.
