Have you heard of glamping before? Glamping is where beautiful nature meets modern luxury. It’s a way to experience camping without having to sacrifice creature comforts.

Folks no longer want a generic, one-size-fits-all vacation. It's about exploring on your terms and immerse ourselves in local culture, and we no longer just want to simply witness nature we want to live in it. A fusion of glamour and camping, glamping is a way to enjoy camping in so many unique ways.

Glamping is much more than a nice tent. More and more people are getting into the glamping movement it is still growing, and it’s showing no signs of slowing down. You can wake up in a yurt on a mountaintop. Reside in the forest canopy in a treehouse. Take in the panoramic views in an eco-lodge. And that’s just to name a few. There are so many glamping experiences.

First on our glamping list is the upgrade on tent camping.

LOOK: Here are the best lake towns to live in

Many of the included towns jump out at the casual observer as popular summer-rental spots--the Ozarks' Branson, Missouri, or Arizona's Lake Havasu--it might surprise you to dive deeper into some quality-of-life offerings beyond the beach and vacation homes. You'll likely pick up some knowledge from a wide range of Americana: one of the last remaining 1950s-style drive-ins in the Midwest; a Florida town that started as a Civil War veteran retirement area; an island boasting some of the country's top public schools and wealth-earners right in the middle of a lake between Seattle and Bellevue; and even a California town containing much more than Johnny Cash's prison blues.

LOOK: Here are the 50 best beach towns in America

Every beach town has its share of pluses and minuses, which got us thinking about what makes a beach town the best one to live in. To find out, Stacker consulted data from WalletHub, released June 17, 2020, that compares U.S. beach towns. Ratings are based on six categories: affordability, weather, safety, economy, education and health, and quality of life. The cities ranged in population from 10,000 to 150,000, but they had to have at least one local beach listed on TripAdvisor. Read the full methodology here. From those rankings, we selected the top 50. Readers who live in California and Florida will be unsurprised to learn that many of towns featured here are in one of those two states.
