When my husband and I were newlyweds, we went on a three-day backpacking trip, miles away from other people and modern plumbing – a test of our wedding vows if there ever was one.
It was fun when we were in our 20s, but fortunately, camping options have evolved over the years. Today, couples, families and friends have to option to “glamp” – camping with glamorous twist.
For those unfamiliar, glamping allows you to sleep under the stars in a real bed with a real floor under your feet. The tent is usually a very sturdy canvas, big enough to stand upright and walk around in. While each setting is unique to the location, glamping sites are usually furnished like rustic standalone hotel rooms.
In our home state of Missouri, we have lots of glamping options that showcase the Show Me State’s beautiful outdoors, provide plenty of comfort and yes, can be considered romantic. But families and friends can have a great time at these picks too.
