When 2020 (and everything that came with it) hit hard, we turned to a shortened list of ways to step out. Drive-in movies were there for us at a time when we needed them most.

While a lot of events and festivals back on the schedule this fall and tons of pumpkin patches to visit, haunted tours, fall foliage train rides, and epic leaf peeping to be done, we urge you not to forget the perfect old-school date night that is the drive-in experience. Step out and make the most of the finite drive-in movie season with friends, the family, and/or your loved one.
