GLAMPING is the new trend y’all. Our prayers have been answered. Allow me to share with you my peaceful, long 4th of July Glamping experience.
As I lay there, sticky and crowded, my brother drooling on my right shoulder and my sister’s night breath in my left ear, it was then that I vowed never again to consider camping a form of recreation.
20 years later, I stood there in pure displeasure as I listened to my daughter’s exciting request to go camping. Selfishly, I quickly attempted to offer her a more “fun” option for our quick summer “getaway”. Since I failed to come up with some better offer, and since she had been asking about camping for so long, I knew the time had come. It was time I faced my reality. I was going camping.
But if you know me, you know I don’t give up that easy. I was determined to find us a beautiful destination that would fit her outdoor personality and my glam lifestyle (or so I’d like to think). In came The Green Acres, an alluring location that offered eye-catching yurts with chic decor, city style amenities and breathtaking views. It’s located in Elgin, TX, about 30 to 40 minutes away from Austin, surrounded by other charming little towns. I had hit the vacation jackpot. We were not going camping. For our fourth of July getaway, we were going Glamping!!!
We disconnected from the world and explored the chic, farm lifestyle.
If rest was needed, we found comfort in our beautiful tent.
My Fourth of July getaway was well spent. Peace, family, endless farmland, and most important, minimum social media.
Review: The host/owner was super attentive, welcoming and treated his guests like family. I highly recommend the Green Acres camping aka glamping grounds for your next getaway. You are in for a unique experience.
