En español | If you're looking to escape into a world where hope and love always prevail, look no further than Hallmark Channel movies. What began as a Christmas tradition has morphed into a year-round feel-good extravaganza with movies for every season. The perfect antidote to today's 24/7 news cycle, Hallmark movies are just the escape we're all looking for these days. We looked for the best of Hallmark's warm stories of small towns, old loves and new beginnings, and these 11 films are our favorites — and you can stream them all through the end of June.

Ready to relive your camp days and see what happens when you run into your summertime sweetheart as an adult?

Harvest Love (2017)
You can pull on a big comfy sweater and pretend it's fall as you sink your teeth into this juicy story set in a pear orchard. Our widowed heroine Luna takes a break from her career as a surgeon to reconnect with her son. She'll connect with more than that when they head to her family's orchard for some R&R.
Love on a Limb (2016)
Every small town has that one old oak tree where residents have made memories. In the movies — as in real life — there's always someone threatening to take it down. Of course, in a Hallmark movie, he's a handsome landscaper. It's easy to root for do-gooder Aimie when she chains herself to the tree while trying to win over the landscaper.
Love Struck Café (2017)
The big bad developer is a common trope in Hallmark movies, but this one has an interesting twist — the architect trying to buy up land to build a commercial complex is homegrown. Forced to choose between her career and preserving her hometown, Megan also has to face the childhood boyfriend who broke her heart.
Heart of the Country (2013)
They say you can't go home again, but Faith has no choice after her husband is jailed for Wall Street fraud. From a life of luxury to living in her childhood bedroom in rural North Carolina, watch as she faces the father and sister she left behind and rediscovers who she really is.
A Winter Princess (2019)
Everyone loves a good royalty-undercover love story, and this one flips the usual narrative on its head with a princess being the secret commoner. Carly — aka Princess Carlotta — is working incognito at a ski resort and teams up with the owner's attractive brother to plan the resort's 50th anniversary celebration turned fundraiser. Will she expose her identity to save the resort?
The Lost Valentine (2011)
Let's face it: You can never go wrong with Betty White. Throw in Jennifer Love Hewitt and you know you've got a hit. Caroline has spent 60 years waiting for her pilot husband, declared missing in action during World War II. TV reporter Susan can't imagine the ways her own life will change when she profiles Caroline for a Valentine's story.
Tulips in Spring (2016)
So much more here than just a woman leaving the big city to come home and save the family tulip farm. Our heroine, Rose, repairs her relationship with her father, staves off a saboteur, rediscovers her green thumb and, of course, falls in love. And the tulips — so many beautiful tulips!
