It seems only yesterday that I would be chomping at the bit to go camping with my family.
We went everywhere camping and it all started using rental tents for the military base where our family was stationed.
I do remember there came a point when the parents went more upscale on the whole camping experience and bought an RV. The kids still slept out in tents, but the parents had the comforts of home in their RV.
When I met my husband Scott, and after we got married we used to do the whole camping thing too with our kids. All of us had lots of fun!
The kids are young adults now and have their rituals as far as camping goes.
Recently my husband Scott brought up the subject of going camping. I just kinda stood there and said "you have to be kidding"
I mean the idea of camping is great but who wants to sleep on the ground? I think the way to go now is sleeping up off the ground, sounds a lot better to me!
Why not try out glamping?
Look at it this way: you are still outdoors and will still have a unique outdoor experience.
Another plus is you get to sleep a lot more comfortably than if you were sleeping on the ground.
There are a lot of places near us here in the Berkshires, and not too far over the borders you can get the whole glamping experience.
When it comes down to glamping it is much more than a nice tent. More and more people are getting into the glamping movement it is still growing, and it’s showing no signs of slowing down.
You can wake up in a yurt on a mountaintop, reside in the forest canopy in a treehouse, take in the panoramic views in an eco-lodge, And that’s just to name a few. There are so many glamping experiences. You can make your glamping experience uniquely yours!
First on our glamping list is the upgrade on tent camping.

LOOK: Here are the 50 best beach towns in America
Every beach town has its share of pluses and minuses, which got us thinking about what makes a beach town the best one to live in. To find out, Stacker consulted data from WalletHub, released June 17, 2020, that compares U.S. beach towns. Ratings are based on six categories: affordability, weather, safety, economy, education and health, and quality of life. The cities ranged in population from 10,000 to 150,000, but they had to have at least one local beach listed on TripAdvisor. Read the full methodology here. From those rankings, we selected the top 50. Readers who live in California and Florida will be unsurprised to learn that many of towns featured here are in one of those two states.
