    What is Glamping?

    You might be new to this and wondering what the heck glamping even is.

    Think of glamping as luxury camping.

    Glamping is for people like us who enjoy being in nature, but prefer to sleep in a real bed and have running water and electricity to enjoy when needed.

    Glamping allows us to enjoy the fun side of camping without sacrificing on the creature comforts that we have become accustom to.

    When choosing a glamping accommodation, keep in mind that you have many choices.

    You can glamp in a teepee, a wagon, and Airstream, tents, yurts, or cabins.

    Not only that, but some sites include private bathrooms and a private outdoor space with a hot tub or fire pit.

    Of course, there are some glamping experiences that are not as luxurious.

    For example, you might have to share a bathroom at some glamping experiences, so be sure to read the description fully so that you find the perfect accommodation for your needs.

    Is There Glamping In Texas?

    ABSOLUTELY!

    Texas is really a fabulous place to go glamping as there are numerous choices available.

    Texas glamping has become extremely popular and accommodations are embracing people’s need to connect with nature.

    When planning your luxury camping getaway, Texas truly has something for everyone.

    You can book a yurt, bubbles, safari tents, treehouses, old railroad cars, wagons, and more. Really, the possibilities are endless.

    In addition to numerous accommodation choices, glamping in Texas can be done all over the Lone Star State.

    We are talking top places to visit in Texas like Austin, Houston, Dallas, and of course, loads of Texas small towns.

    In addition to these top, some of Texas’ top outdoor destinations like Big Bend National Park, the Texas Hill Country, and the Texas coast have glamping options.

    Many are located minutes away from other fun attractions, ensuring that you have the best experience possible.

    Glamping in Texas: Texas weather

    Of course, you should always consider the weather conditions when planning your Texas glamping trip.

    The weather in Texas can be quite unpredictable and change quickly, and is quite varied across the state (remember Texas is a HUGE state).

    North Texas areas are known to be cold in the winter and hot and humid in the summer, while the south Texas area has mild winters and long, hot and humid summers.

    No matter what, if you are choosing to try glamping in Texas during the summer months, be sure to take appropriate consideration for the Texas heat.

    Try to book something near the water to cool off from the hot days, or consider an accommodation that has air conditioning.

    If you are traveling during the winter months, consider staying in central Texas or the Texas Hill Country where the winters are generally more mild.
