The Weekend Series: five summer essentials to upgrade your camping to glamping

Camping certainly isn’t for everyone – when you’re an adult, hanging out in a sweaty plastic dome with no electricity or hot water kind of loses its appeal. Sure, the scenery is nice, but at what cost? Our base level of comfort? No thank you sir. The simple solution here is to level up – we’re talking glamping. Much like its inferior sibling, glamping is all about appreciating your natural surroundings but with the added benefit of being able to actually sleep at night because you’re not rolling around on a half-deflated air mattress marinating in a week’s worth of your own filth. We’ve searched for five key items that will turn your next camping trip into a glamping extravaganza. more
