How to Turn Camping Into Glamping
We are all drawn to nature in some form or fashion. Every now and then, it’s imperative to leave the electronics at home and actually appreciate the great outdoors. That said, not everyone can handle the inconveniences that come with traditional camping.
Keep reading as we explain how to turn camping into what’s become known as “glamping.”
Choose a Great Campsite
Not all campsites are the same. Frankly, we recommend doing some research of your own to see which local spots are worth the trek. In terms of glam camping locations, you don’t have to spend an arm and a leg just to have a good time.
Ideally, the site should have electricity, hot water, clean restrooms, and, of course, beautiful surroundings. Trust us when we say that the actual campsite will often make or break the entire experience. So don’t just pick one at random.
Have the Right Glamping Gear
Another thing that makes a huge difference with glamping is the tent. Do you really want to be ducking and crouching just to move in and out? We’re guessing not.
So what exactly should you look for in a tent? First and foremost, it should be double-skinned so it won’t leak when it rains. The second thing is that the tent should be easy to put up and take down.
Pro tip: avoid purchasing the cheapest tent you can find. As with other products, you get what you pay for. It doesn’t make much sense to skimp on a tent now and wind up having to fork up some serious cash for a higher quality one in the near future.
Pack Delicious Food and Drinks
Glamping and incredible food go hand in hand. Granted, some folks might consider a can of beans and hot dogs to be “real” camping grub. For glamping trips, though, we recommend packing bacon and eggs for breakfast, sandwiches for lunch, and food to prepare on the grill for dinner.
All you have to do is remember the cooler and a few large ice packs.
Wear Comfortable Clothes
If you’ve lived in Austin for any period of time, then you know it gets scorching hot in a hurry. So remember to pack accordingly and have the right clothes for whatever activities are on the agenda.
