Ironia, NJ (PRWEB) April 23, 2010
According to the U.S. Department of the Interior, today’s children are spending half as much time outside as their parents did. This shift from outdoor activity toward indoor passive entertainment, like video games, the Internet and television, has been a contributing factor to childhood obesity and other issues. In response, President Obama launched the “America's Great Outdoors” program to encourage Americans to spend more time outside and enjoy nature.
To celebrate Earth Week, Twin Red Media is pleased to announce the launch of Outbound Family (http://www.outboundfamily.com). Outbound Family’s mission is to help families unplug from the passive distractions to reconnect with nature and themselves. The site provides informative articles and a searchable database of destination profiles so you can find a great outdoor spot near you. There’s even a mobile version of the site for families on the go.
At launch, Outbound Family profiles over 75 outdoor destinations in the Northeast U.S., representing hundreds of thousands of acres of natural fun. Each profile provides a description of the destination, a list of activities, links to its website and a map of its location. Registered users of Outbound Family can rate each destination and post their own reviews.
Before heading outside, be sure to check Outbound Family for great ideas to enjoy together.
