The Travel Well – Summer Movies

June 30, 2016

(As always, comments are appreciated. Partners on this venture are always welcomed. So, contact me with whatever.)



When we think of summer, we usually think we will relax at some point, if not for the entire summer. Or maybe the soothing and calming images of what summer means is enough to relax you. This can include family vacations, time at the beach with friends, relaxing at the nearby pool, or waking up early to combine the freshness of a new day combined with mindfulness exercises.

We often consider our entertainment options, whether it be the movies you want to watch on that summer vacation or the line of summer blockbusters that come out. Even television shows may pivot to their summer season or more summer-oriented settings for their television shows. Yet, there are so many summer movies or movies with summer or summer vacation as one of the central themes. Camp commonly appears as well.

For instance, Summer School, Dirty Dancing, Wet Hot American Summer, Meatballs, The Sandlot, and I Know What You Did Last Summer are several big names to come out over the last 30+ years.. This list can go on and on. Some of these were box office successes because of the time and appetite for movie watchers.

With that being said, depending upon which sites and ezines you like to follow, I will just provide several links to those sites that do provide their lists about best summer movies.

Quotes about the Summer:

“I almost wish we were butterflies and liv’d but three summer days – three such days with you I could fill with more delight than fifty common years could ever contain.” – John Keats

“Summer afternoon—summer afternoon; to me those have always been the two most beautiful words in the English language.” – Henry James


“I believe that summer is our time, a time for the people, and that no politician should be allowed to speak to us during the summer. They can start talking again after Labor Day”-Lewis Black
