When you combine the words “glamorous” and “camping,” you get “glamping.” This form of travel marries the beauty and simplicity of the great outdoors with the modern amenities and creature comforts of a hotel. While the term has only been around since 2005 (it was added to the Oxford English Dictionary in 2016), the practice of comfortable tent living is nothing new. These 20 glamping resorts offer some of the best locations and amenities in the United States.
