How to do winter glamping right in Arizona

Listen to this story

From the publishers of Vogue:

When I told my friends I would be spending the first part of my holidays sleeping in a tent, I was met with a few blank faces and a couple polite exclamations of “Oh!”

I don’t exactly scream camper: I like to be outside, but I like being comfortable more. Camping (a.k.a. sleeping on the ground and foregoing access to a bathroom) isn’t on my bucket list.

But when given the opportunity to leave blustery New York for a winter glamping trip in sunny Tucson, Arizona, I couldn’t possibly say no.

Glamping is not camping — it’s better. Glamping (glamorous camping) isn’t anything new—years ago, the Internet caught on to a whole other breed of nature lover, one that enjoyed hiking, rafting, and riding horses, but preferred to tuck into a king-sized bed rather than a sleeping bag.
