Much of the country is experiencing a sweltering heatwave, making us a little limp and less productive that we’d like. Why not wilt in style? A trend called Glamping (short for glamorous camping) is catching hold.
What is glamping?
David Troya, founder of Glamping Hub, says that they look for three elements in identifying glamp-sites: they should have a “unique structure;” immediate access to the outdoors as opposed to a hotel lobby; and the comfort of a hotel (“at the very least you’re going to have a bed and hot water”). So it could be a yurt or teepee outfitted with a wood-burning stove in the mountains of Utah or it could be a luxury safari tent in a Tanzanian game reserve.
