t’s getting warmer outside, and you know what that means. It’s time to go outside and play. Lucky for you, next month just happens to also be National Camping Month, so there’s no better excuse to get into the great outdoors and take in some open skies and fresh air.
But did you know the stars have already determined your destination? Believe it or not, your zodiac sign can tell a lot about what camping locale would best suit your personality.
Personality: You are adventurous. You don’t like to stay in one place and enjoy wandering off the beaten path.
Destination: While gas prices are still low, why not take a cross-country RV trip? Hitting the open road can lead you to many unpredictable places and constantly keep you satiating your wanderlust.
Personality: You don’t shy away from luxury. You enjoy feeling comfortable and pampered.
Destination: You don’t always have to sacrifice extravagance to explore the great outdoors. A compromise would be to book a luxury hotel in very close driving proximity to your outdoor destination. The larger national parks out there are likely to have them.
Personality: You like having options. Flexibility is highly attractive, so the more things you can do in one place, the better.
Destination: The more popular national parks are ideal for you. For example, Yosemite National Park offers a variety of different places to explore. From North America’s highest waterfall to its tallest granite monolith, the options are vast for fun to be had.
Personality: You like staying close to home, and spending time with loved ones takes precedence over everything else.
Destination: You don’t have to go far to find yourself in the outdoors. With a bit of research, you can find a state park where you can plan a daytrip with friends and family. Try throwing a BBQ in the mountains or picnic at the lake.
Personality: You are a thrill-seeker. Lots of action and adventure is your cup of tea.
Destination: Research larger national parks that offer unique experiences. It might even be worth booking a specialized guide to take you on outdoor activities that could include rock climbing, zip lining, kayaking, or even spelunking.
Personality: You are very intellectual and appreciate mental stimulation. Learning something new is a real treat.
Destination: Consider camping experiences that let you spend the night like one of the locals. Research historical tours that pair with camping out in tipis, igloos, or even yurts if you’re ever in Mongolia.
Personality: You are impulsive and like deciding things on a whim. When the mood strikes, you savor the ability to act upon it.
Destination: Type your zip code into discovertheforest.org and select a national park from the list. You can thank us later.
Personality: You love to explore but want to do it in style.
Destination: Have you heard of glamping? It is literally a combination of the words “glamorous” and “camping” and defines it to a tee. This is the perfect way to feel like a rock star and still get into the outdoors.
Personality: You are the opposite of a tourist. Complete immersion is far more interesting.
Destination: Try camping in a foreign country. You don’t necessarily have to book a Sherpa and climb the Himalayas, but there are guaranteed hiking destinations in any country you ever want to visit. You just have to be mindful enough to look.
Personality: You are very social and have the gift of gab. Kicking back in the company of others is your main squeeze.
Destination: It can be quite beautiful sleeping under the stars by the sea. Many states actually have special campgrounds designated for just this type of camping. This is a great option that also combines a beach vacation.
Personality: You are highly independent and know exactly what you like.
Destination: Return to a destination from your past but explore it in different ways. Now that you’ve grown a little bit older and wiser, you are guaranteed to see things with a different perspective.
Personality: You are very sensitive to your surroundings and enjoy tranquil activities. Alone time isn’t necessarily a bad thing.
Destination: Skip the big names and popular parks. You’re better off feeling serene in places devoid of people. For example, check out Great Basin National Park in Nevada so far from the seat of civilization, you can camp in peace beneath an infinite blanket of stars.
