The Points Guy
New York City has no shortage of incredible places to stay, and even more properties are currently in the works. But if you find yourself in the "Center of the Universe" this summer, skip Times Square and take the ferry to Governers Island for a glamping experience with the city skyline in the background.
Collective Retreats, a company that puts together one-of-a-kind outdoor experiences, has kicked off its 2022 season in NYC with 30 different accommodations, including luxury tents and temperature-controlled, cabin-like rooms with soaking tubs — and they all have private bathrooms. If that's not enough, there are tons of fun activities, such as floral workshops while sipping on rosé and classes that teach you how to make traditional clay drinking cups while learning about mezcal. There are also top-tier culinary offerings like seasonal brunches, chef-tasting menus, delicious sweets from chef Aura Danton and even late-night s'mores.
So whether you're a tourist looking to see a different side of NYC (surprise! there's a lot of green in the concrete jungle) or a local looking for a staycation, glamping may be exactly what you're looking for.
