Colorado’s temperate climate and breathtaking scenery beckon adventurers from near and far to play in the great outdoors. But not everyone, who loves being in nature and looking up at the stars, enjoys sleeping in the elements. That’s where “glamping” comes in. The term glamping is a mashup of the words “glamorous” and “camping.”

Some advantages of glamping include:

- Enjoying the great outdoors without having to go without modern conveniences like beds, pillows, running water and electricity.

- Glamping can be done anywhere, from your backyard to a luxury resort in a remote mountain town.

- From the most rustic cabin to lavishly decorated glamping pods, yurts, large tents and even tree houses, there are glamping options to fit every budget.

The Denver Home Show’s Glamping Interior Design Expert Heather Sheridan, owner of Decorating Den Interiors, offers a few suggestions for your next glamping experience:

- As you plan, keep in mind what conveniences and comfort you cannot do without and then pack accordingly. If you’re staying in a rustic space, make sure you have adequate lighting for any after-dark activities.

- Bring pillows, along with warm, comfortable bedding for a good night’s rest.

- For die-hard glampers, consider investing in a tankless water heater with a showerhead. (Wouldn't it be nice to enjoy a nice warm shower on your glamping trip?)

There is no shortage of glamping locations in Colorado but keep in mind sites that take reservations fill up quickly, so it’s important to reserve your spot well in advance.
