Teepees, Tents and Yurts: 9 U.S. Getaways

If the idea of staying in a 5 star hotel for your next vacation sounds nice, but the thought of getting to rough it in a tent, teepee or yurt sounds magical, you might be interested in the list of places we've rounded up for you. The best part of these spots, besides the gorgeous natural surroundings, is you don't have to pack in your own accommodations!There's a lovely trend in vacation stays that really picked up steam a few years ago, and it's the notion of being surrounded by nature but still retaining a few creature comforts. We don't know if we'd call any of these nine places in the U.S. "glamping" trips (we imagine there'd still be potential bug run-ins at a least a few of these places), but they're certainly a little more luxurious than hiking in with your own tent and supplies. Spread out across the nation, there seems to be a yurt, tent or teepee option for whatever sort of landscape you're looking for. Where will you head to first?
