Now is the time to start planning your Adventures for 2017. Here is an awesome guide to get you started.

Airbnb has turned the hospitality industry on its head, offering travelers more overnight options, typically at lower prices. I personally love using Airbnb when I travel because it’s fun to live like a local while exploring new places and if you’re traveling with a group, a larger house is going to be way more cost effective than separate hotel rooms.

Airbnb isn’t just for city slickers, though. There are some very cool and unique options as an alternative to camping. So, the next time your girlfriend puts up a fight about sleeping in a tent, take her to one of these awesome glamping spots:

(Burlingame, California)
Currently $275/night, sleeps two people, this treehouse was built 18 years ago in a 150-year-old oak tree and, best part of all, no kids allowed. Pro Tip: You guessed it...HAMMOCKS!

spotty service but an upgraded bathroom (just my style)

(Dugspur, VA)
Currently $65/night, this simple glamping tent has
amazing views of the Blue Ridge Mountains and not much else, because you’re in the middle of nowhere on 100 acres of land. Yes, please.
