Let’s Go Glamping

May 2020 View more

Finding ways to escape has risen to a whole new level in 2020. The great outdoors is certainly the antidote we all need, just as the Midwest comes alive.

If you like communing with nature, but not roughing it, glamping (glamour + camping) might be the answer. Think comfy beds, indoor plumbing, and a hot breakfast—it’s all possible. Whether you’re traveling with pets or kids, or just want a romantic weekend away, we’ve done the research so you can just get out there when social distancing starts to ease. Choose a state and a glamping level and hit the road—nature is calling.
