With June being National Camping Month, we thought it would be the perfect time to highlight our city’s beautiful surroundings. While not everyone may be prepared to set up a tent, roll out a sleeping bag, and doze on the hard ground, Austin and the surrounding hill country offer Glamping, or glamorous camping, that doesn’t skimp on the amenities. So grab your family or significant other and get away from the city while luxuriously connecting with nature like never before!
