5 Dome Stays to Add to Your Vacay Wishlist

Dome vacation rentals have become a popular choice among outdoor adventurers and explorers in recent years—and there are plenty of good reasons why. Domes have a relatively small footprint and blend seamlessly with the wild, making it easy to access all the treasures the outdoors have to offer. What’s more, domes elevate the typical camping experience with a hint of luxury. Here are five wilderness dome rental recommendations for those who love to wander yet crave a few creature comforts.
