If you love the idea of getting back to nature in a beautiful rural area but hate the thought of pitching a tent and using communal bathrooms, a glamping experience in Connecticut could be ideal for you. Most of the camping/glamping destinations are located in beautiful parts of the countryside, often close to interesting little rural towns waiting to be discovered. With glamping, you get to enjoy all the fun of camping without having to sleep on a mattress or give up your hot shower. Most glamping accommodations take the form of rustic to deluxe cabins, with or without kitchens and bathrooms. Usually you just need to pack your clothes and food and get ready for a memorable family adventure. Be sure to call the attractions and restaurants ahead of your visit to confirm current opening times.
