5 movies to watch on Netflix for endless summer vibes

Even as the leaves change and the weather turns cooler, you can keep summer going forever if you think of it as a state of mind. Yes, there are unavoidable reminders of the seasonal shift—going back to school or to a regular five-day work week (so long, summer Fridays)—but there is also a special vacuum where time knows no bounds: Netflix.

Not only is it a couch-friendly way to get some vacation inspiration (there’s still time to book that last-minute Labor Day weekend trip), but it can also help you sustain your chilled-out summer vibe deep into the winter.

Read below to see our top 5 endless-summer movie picks available on Netflix.

Get Started


1. The Lifeguard

In The Lifeguard, refreshingly honest and insightful Kristin Bell stars as a New York reporter who quits her job to return to what makes her happy: the summer lifeguarding job from her teenage years. This movie is a reminder that you have to go through the not-so-great (fall and winter) to get to the goodness (summer).



2. Moonrise Kingdom

This Wes Anderson movie, with its sepia-toned palette, adolescent love story, and beach locale, is so summery, you can practically feel a warm breeze blowing from your screen.



3. One Day

Two old friends check in throughout several decades on July 15th, and their platonic relationship often feels like a series of missed connections. Sorry, no spoilers here about how this ongoing summer love story ends.



4. The Parent Trap

This classic—and the Lindsay Lohan remake—is a reminder that if you meet someone who shares your face and your birthday, it should (hopefully) take you fewer than 90 minutes to realize they’re your long-lost twin.



5. Y Tu Mamá También

Two teenage boys and a pretty lady make their way across Mexico in this coming-of-age flick. The gorgeous scenery may actually convince you to extend your summer with a trip south of the border.

Netflix has its pros and cons: It might be behind your sleep problems, but your binge-watching sesh could also be good for your relationship.
