Treehouses Around the World

After getting shipwrecked, the Swiss Family Robinson lived in a treehouse that now sits in Disney World!
Swiss Family Treehouse

Who doesn't dream of living in a treehouse? Just think about it - you're tucked away from the outside world and you decide who gets to come in! Many characters from books and cartoons have made cozy homes in trees - here are just a few of the coolest treehouses around the world!

Famous Treehouses - Swiss Family Treehouse

On July 17, 1805, the Swiss Family Robinson became shipwrecked on a deserted island in the South Seas. With the remains of their ship, they built a home at the top of a very tall tree! Variations of this treehouse now sit in Adventureland in Disney World, Disneyland Paris and Tokyo Disneyland. The treehouse, which actually has running water, is decorated with whatever the Robinsons could salvage from their wrecked ship, and the rest they made from stuff they found on the island - talk about survivors!

Famous Treehouses - Tarzan's Treehouse

Tarzan's Treehouse in Disneyland is home to Tarzan and Jane. Keep your eyes alert as you enter Tarzan's digs cuz Sabor the leopard has just invaded it! If you get too close to him, he'll roar at you! If you're able to escape from his claws, you can make your way over to make jungle music by banging on pots and pans, or "percussion intruments" as Tarzan's best ape friend, Terk, likes to call 'em!

Famous Treehouses - TreeHouse at Pitchford Hall

Pitchford Hall is a large country house in Pitchford, England. The estate, which was built in the 1560s, is historical (Prince Rupert and his bodyguards hid there during the English Civil War) and haunted - a bunch of ghosts, including a former homeowner, are said to creep and crawl through the hallways! Pitchford Hall also has one of the oldest treehouses in the world. It sits in a large lime tree, and was built in the same style as the house - it even has an oak floor and gothic windows!

Obviously that's why, you just want one of those "cute" relationships people have. Well, you know they don't make those cute on purpose. They've known each other for years, and you don't need a bf to look "cool" or "popular" you just need to be yourself. Frankly take time to get to know someone before even considering of asking them out. Hey who knows, maybe they'll ask you out. Agreed. It is much more better if a boy asked you out rather than you asked him out. Because boys will chase after girls.
