10 Terrific Glamping Locations Perfect For A Weekend Getaway

A little time spent in the great outdoors can work wonders for us all.

But, let’s be honest. Not everyone is cut out for a weekend of roughing it. Relaxation doesn’t always come when you’re sleeping on the ground, cooking over a fire (or burning if you’re as bad of a cook as I am) or hiking for miles with everything you need to survive the weekend.

Okay, sure, I may be making camping in Ohio sound a little more dramatic than it is. But when you’re used to the finer things in life, camping can be a jarring excursion. For those who crave that outdoorsy vibe but want to keep a hold of the comforts of home, glamping is just the ticket.

Glamping, aka glamorous camping, combines the luxury of a hotel with the adventure of staying out in nature, glamping makes for the perfect weekend respite. If you are looking to escape for a weekend getaway of glamping, you need to check out these awesome campsites.
