Take the Family Glamping in North GeorgiaCamping is a popular summer activity that brings families together. I have never been a huge fan of camping because being in nature without any of the comforts of home makes me a little uneasy. I'm also a bit jumpy when it comes to anything creepy crawly. So, camping hasn't always been at the top of my list until I had kids. Part of being a parent is introducing your kids to the world and helping them grow. Just because I can be a diva doesn't mean I wanted my kids to lose out on experiences.
GlampingWhen I heard about "glamping," I was intrigued. Glamping is a style of camping that is a little more glamorous because it includes amenities you wouldn't normally associate with "traditional" camping. My family and I were given the opportunity to go glamping at North Georgia Canopy Tours in order to facilitate this review, but all opinions are my own. North Georgia Canopy Tours offers several options for camping, including glamping in one of their 7 custom teepees. The teepees are set up on a wooden deck, so they are raised slightly from the ground. Each teepee includes lamps and outlets (for charging devices and plugging in necessary items). We stayed in the Dreamcatcher Teepee which included a rustic queen sized bed and a twin over full bunk bed with pillows, linens, and towels. There were also two beautiful wooden chairs, a bench, table, and dresser for storage. Stepping into the teepee, it is obvious that getting a good night's sleep will be a lot easier than being in a sleeping bag on the ground. In August, a new glamping option will be available: Rustic Cowboy Cabins. These cabins will be the size of "tiny houses" in an essence that sleep up to 6 people. With an actual door and glass windows, the Cowboy Cabin will be another great option for those who want to be out in nature but aren't quite ready to "rough it." Thankfully, there are a variety of activities for families at North Georgia Canopy Tours to help everyone stay busy.
