“There is no Wi-Fi in the forest, but I promise you will find a better connection.” - Anonymous

Sometimes it seems like the onslaught of information is simply overwhelming in the digital age. And with the advent of the JOMO (Joy of Missing Out) movement that prioritizes downtime over constant busy-ness, it's easy to see why thousands are beginning to seek out natural, outdoor experiences that help them to disconnect with their tech, and reconnect with themselves. That’s why heading to the great outdoors and visiting a teepee hotel can serve as the ultimate digital detox! In fact, teepee camping is part of an ever-growing “Glamping” (aka glamorous camping) trend among modern-day vacationers that has gained a great deal of popularity in recent years, and now leads the charts in terms of modern (yet natural) getaway and even in-town staycation experiences. Sounds a little bit on the wild side? Before you dismiss a glamping evening in the semi-wilds of your local state park, there are a few things you might want to consider in terms of the benefits behind this ultimate digital detox holiday. So ditch your smartphone and discover 4 reasons why teepee camping at a hotel or resort can be the ultimate rejuvenating experience:

1 | Enjoying the Great Outdoors

Tired of dealing with traffic jams, urban sprawl, strip malls and fast-food restaurants? What better way to escape the stress of the hustle and bustle of today’s society than to head outdoors, breathe some fresh air and get back in touch with nature? In truth, there are many areas of research into the benefits of spending more time outdoors and although he institutes conducting the studies and sample sizes for the research all vary greatly, virtually every study agrees that the medicinal value of being outdoors dramatically (and positively) impacts our:

  • Psychology

  • Oncology

  • Psychiatry

  • And even our eyesight

Different types of people from different walks of life have all been included in these studies, such as children, the elderly, sick people, urban city dwellers, and those already living a rural lifestyle. Bottom line, the results are in and the outdoors is definitely good for you! Teepee camping is the ideal way to enjoy some fun in the sun far away from your hectic daily schedule as you unplug and enjoy quality outdoor time with your loved ones. You may even encounter some wildlife along the way!

2 | Getting Exercise the Fun Way

One of the best aspects of teepee camping is having a great time while also getting some quality exercise in the outdoors. In fact, while camping in the outdoors you simply can’t help but engage in some significant physical activity and thereby get your heart rate up. The opportunities are endless, whether you opt for hiking through the woods surrounded by beautiful scenery, mountain biking down a wooded trail, taking a horseback riding adventure or embarking on a kayaking excursion.

3 | Trying New Things

Many hotels and resorts that offer teepee camping also provide endless opportunities for outdoor recreational activities – ranging from hiking and horseback riding to fishing, boating, rock climbing and ziplining. Teepee camping allows you to enjoy quality time with family and friends, while giving you the flexibility of scheduling a full slate of activities or simply relaxing outside with your favorite brew next to a crackling fire.

4 | Camping Without Roughing It

Teepee camping gives you the opportunity to experience the beauty and splendor of the outdoors in total luxury. In contrast to tent camping (especially tent camping in Florida), many luxury teepees offer all the comforts of home with such sought-after amenities as private bathrooms with showers, portable air conditioners and heating units, mini refrigerators, microwaves, fireplaces, private decks and more. Therefore, you can camp under the stars without sacrificing any of your favorite luxuries (besides TVs, laptops, tablets and other unnecessary distractions, that is!).
