I enjoy being outdoors particularly in the spring, summer and fall. Once in a while, like during the first snowfall, I like to go outside in the winter.

I live in a distinctly four season area.

During the spring, you can smell and feel the freshness outside as buds are just beginning to pop out of the ground and grass is being cut for the first time in some places. The air can still be a little crisp, but at least it's not biting.

In the summer, I love the sun's kiss on my skin and work to find my way out to the beach as much as possible. I also enjoy the dry heat of a desert area so I will look for that type of vacation as well.

In the fall, I enjoy good small town high school Friday night football games. This means getting a cup of hot cocoa to keep warm, but that's okay, the events that can be done outside make it worth it.

I enjoy evenings by an outside firepit, but am necessarily a camper.

I spent much more time outdoors when I was younger than I do now. Part of the problem is that I live in Florida, and the summers are brutal. Too much time outdoors during the heat of the day is not as healthy for an older guy than a young one. However, I do love the beach, though I live in North Central Florida--about 90 minutes from the nearest coast. I would love nothing better than to swim in the ocean each and every day, and I hope to retire to a beach community someday. I actually prefer the outdoors more during the Florida spring, fall and winter months when the heat is not as oppressive. I love the fresh air, and prefer open windows to air conditioning when the weather is right.

I have always enjoyed being outdoors.  I feel that being outdoors, especially when I am out in a natural setting, refreshes me and makes me feel happier and less stressed.

My favorite outdoor activity has been hiking (or backpacking).  I love to be able to go walking out in the woods all day.  I get to look at nature and I can go all day without seeing more than 2 or 3 people other than my wife and my kids.  The solitude and the nature are extremely relaxing.

I also enjoy doing these kinds of things because they allow me to get exercise.  This further reduces my stress levels and, presumably, allows me to be healthier.

Definitely! The great outdoors is something that is very important and refreshing to everyone, I would imagine. I wouldn't necessarily call myself a Romantic in the Thoreau or Emerson kind of way, but I do place an incredibly high value on getting out into the "great outdoors" and enjoying the countryside. For me, I love trekking up mountains...

I enjoy being outdoors, though the extreme weather of winter and summer in the places where I've lived (very hot and very cold)often make it difficult to do.  Fall is my favorite season--right now, in fact--when it's still fairly warm during the day but cools off at night.  Thanks for asking.

I enjoy being outdoors to a certain extent. I don't like bugs, and I am allergic to a lot of plants. I am not a big fan of dirt either. I also have allergies to grass and pollen. That being said, I do like taking hikes and walks in environments that are not that heavy in the aforementioned.

I love the outdoors. It is a place you can go and find solitude. Each season brings a different look to where you are at. Sometimes each day is even different. Being out in nature is very relaxing.
