Being a city girl at heart, the idea of camping often conjures up images of larger-than-life bugs, wild animals roaming about and mosquito-ridden tents. While I don’t argue that the merits of being in the great outdoors can be a wonderful way to appreciate nature, there was no way you could convince me to go into the wilderness unless it involved being inside a camper, complete with working toilet and air conditioning.
Aiming to give people the best of both worlds, North Georgia Canopy Tours created modern teepees that offer a new way to sleep under the stars and enjoy glamping, (a new term being used for upscale camping).
These luxury canvas teepees come fully equipped with comfortable beds, white cedar log furniture, air conditioning, lighting and electrical outlets. Feel close to nature but not far from your iPhone, enjoy roasting marshmallows outside, then retreat to the comfort of your air conditioned teepee – now this type of camping I could get use to!
Our May issue will be packed with more ways to enjoy your summer – make sure to check it out next month!
