Ahhh, the great outdoors. Who doesn't love it? Well, let's just say some of us, but that doesn't mean we don't love getting in touch with nature. Welcome to the world of Glamping.
If you live in Michigan, camping is a way of life right up there with playing Euchre and drinking Vernors. Now, if true camping isn't your thing, you can still enjoy all the Mitten State has to offer in nature with some amazing alternatives. Michigan has some great vacation spots designed just for those looking to take traditional camping to a little more civilized level.
What is Glamping?
According to Wikipedia, Glamping is;
"A portmanteau of 'glamorous' and 'camping', and describes a style of camping with amenities and, in some cases, resort-style services not usually associated with 'traditional' camping. Glamping has become particularly popular with 21st-century tourists seeking the luxuries of hotel accommodation alongside 'the escapism and adventure recreation of camping'."
It's camping with just a little more finesse to make spending the night outside a little more tolerable and fun. Enjoy the idea of taking in nature, but skip the sleeping in a tree hammock hoping Yogi Bear doesn't stop by for a nightcap.
Here's the best part, Michigan has some great Airbnbs designed just for those looking to take traditional camping to a little more civilized level. Some units are just glorified tents with a bed, and others go right for modern amenities such as kitchens and bathrooms. Whatever your level of stepping outside of the box happens to be, there's sure to be a Glamping experience just for you.
