Willow Witt TentImagine a weekend dedicated to glamorous camping -- glamping!

On June 2-3 this year, glamping aficionados all over the country will gather together and celebrate the (comfy, fluffy, elegant) outdoors.

What is glamping? Picture tents with beds, fully-furnished yurts, antique sheepherder wagons, or spots to park your own adorably restored vintage camper.

While the term may be relatively new, the concept of glamping dates back to the early 1900s, when American and European travlers stayed in luxurious tent accommodations while on safari in Africa.Pagett Farm Tent Today's glampers still seek out close-to-nature locales while opting for comfort in their lodgings. Farm fresh and organic foods round out the experience.
