Fall is right around the corner and it's the season for glamping! Glamping, also known as, camping but with a little luxury thrown in, is a great way to enjoy the outdoors and the beautiful fall weather. Looking for ways to get your glamp on this fall? Read on for your ultimate guide to glamping.

The Getaway House offers tiny cabins that are tucked away in beautiful natural settings! If you are looking to go glamping, the Getaway House offers accommodations in a variety of locations in the US. Another benefit to using the Getaway House is the ability to unplug. Rest, relax, and rejuvenate yourself this fall! Many of the Getaway House destinations have amazing hiking and biking trails. Be sure to inquire when you book your cabin.

Take your glamping to new heights and consider booking a treehouse hotel for your fall excursion. A unique way to really live in nature and be above it all! While some of the accommodations are a little rougher than others, they all are a fantastic way to reconnect with nature. Many of the treehouse hotels offer biking, hiking, and nature trails. 

After you get your glamping accommodations booked, you need to ensure you have the right gear for your trip. From blankets to stoves and knives your weekend adventure will definitely require some of these supplies. Find out what gear is on hand in your cabin and then go out and buy the rest of the gear you might need to take your glamping to the next level. 

You have your cabin booked, you purchased all your glamping gear - what's next? Get online and do some research of the area you will be staying in. If hiking and biking are your thing, try and find trails in the area. Be sure to print off maps - they can become handy in case you lose your way or phone signal. If hiking and biking sound too physical for you, try and find a relaxing spa or wellness center in the area.

Glamping is a great way to unplug, unwind and reconnect with nature this fall.

Stay Moving to Stay Alive: 3 Reasons to Take Up Cycling

Sometimes the world seems so dangerous. We worry about accidents, cancer, and criminals potentially lurking around the corner. Actually, there's a much quieter, much closer concern that many of us overlook.

Inactivity is currently the world's fourth leading cause of death. It's a problem often confused and conflated with laziness and personal choice, but in reality the issue is geographic, systemic, and woven into the structure of modern living. (EuroNews)

That statement may sound shocking, but the numbers back it up.

  • 1.5 billion people around the world are so inactive they are risking their long-term physical health
  • 5.3 million people die each year from causes related to inactive living

Biking is an enjoyable hobby for people of all ages. Whether you're tooling around the neighborhood or participating in road races, cycling is a great way to get fresh air and exercise.  

Unfortunately, cycling can be dangerous. And it is important for us to bring awareness to the dangers of cycling to help all riders become highly alert of their surroundings when riding on the road. In 2020, nearly 700 cyclists were killed in crashes involving vehicles. Of those, a quarter were hit-and-runs, which means the driver fled the scene before police arrived.

Those are the results of the 2020 Cycling Deaths project compiled by Outside Magazine.  The data was analyzed with the assistance of information scientists at BikeMaps.org.

Coming Soon! The Great American Rail Trail
Coming Soon! The Great American Rail Trail

Ever dream of thru-biking across the interior of the United States? Thanks to a decades-long project spearheaded by the Rails-To-Trails Conservancy, that trip is one step closer to fruition. 

When completed, the Great American Rail-Trail will stretch from Washington D.C. to Washington state, encompassing nearly 3,700 miles along the way. The idea has been in the works for 50 years and more progress is being made every day. 

About 80 miles of the trail are considered complete, but the Great American Rail-Trail already connects with existing bike trails. It's built on old railroad lines, hence the name. The path is made from paved asphalt, crushed stone and other materials.
