Glamping not camping
New England has 3 of the top “ glamping” site in America. That is according to the folks at Country Living. Glamping is a relatively new concept. Folks that enjoy the concept of camping without all the messy campground and tenting nuisances. It’s for folks who don’t want to sleep in a pitched tent inside of a sleeping bag with mosquitoes buzzing around their heads in the middle of the night.
No more sleeping on the floor!
According to Country Living magazine, Glamping has been around since around 2005. Think of it as they desire to commune with mother nature on your own terms in your own luxury space.
