Monday's weather was a perfect indication that Spring is definitely on the way (after we get through the next few days of rain) which means it's almost time for outdoor activities like ...  Drive-in movies!

To be honest I haven't been to a drive-in movie since like, high school. Even then trips to the drive-in were few and far between because there was only one anywhere near where I lived and it was definitely a bit of a drive to get to it. However, when we went it was totally worth it because we could be the hooligan children that we were and we got to watch two movies with your admission!

Anyway, when I came across this list from NewYorkUpstate.com I was surprised to see that there were so many drive-in movie options in and around the Capital Region! Now that (hopefully) the snow is about done for the season and the weather is getting a little warmer they're are all getting ready to open for 2017!

I don't know about you but I have been feeling a little stir crazy lately and I am so ready to go do things that are not indoors and especially not in my house! If you are feeling the cabin fever and want to do something outside but still kind of want to be lazy and watch some movies below are some drive-in options in and around the Capital Region.
