How Travel Channel Fans #OptOutside

Skip Black Friday madness and go outside.

Last year thousands of Americans opted out of Black Friday, choosing to spend time in the great outdoors and take advantage of our great country and national parks. If standing in line at 3 a.m. in the freezing cold waiting for doorbuster deals doesn't sound like your kind of holiday either, welcome to the #OptOutside movement.

Our Travel Channel fans have opted outside more than 4,300 times with #LiveTravelChannel on Instagram since last year. Here are just a few of our favorite shots.
