Spring is here, summer will be upon us before we know it and the outdoors is calling. Camping, hiking, boating, swimming, and all the fun the outdoors entails. The warmer weather has gifted us the opportunity to enjoy it all!
Now, I know that not everyone is a fan of the great outdoors. The outdoors also means sunburns, bug bites, sweat and all of those less enjoyable things. So today on our list we have a happy medium for the outdoor lovers as well as the stay indoor types.
Today we have 9 movies about being outdoors. So if you love the outdoors you will love watching these stories of fellow outdoor lovers exploring nature. If you prefer the indoors you can sit back in your air-conditioned, bug free home and live vicariously through the characters on screen.
