As a New York Times article on the subject says, “Camping? Yes. Roughing it? Not quite.” It’s the perfect description of upscale camping, or glamping. If you’re the type of person that could never imagine packing your own tent and doing without a shower for a few days, this is the perfect summer activity for you. Instead of lukewarm coffee over a fire and mosquito infested campsites, imagine gourmet breakfasts and mosquito net draped beds.
The budget version? Glam up a tent in your backyard and invite friends over for DIY mani-pedis and facials.
