Porch swings are a type of swinging bench primarily intended for adults. Porch swings are permanently mounted to the roof of a porch. The seat typically is large enough to seat about three people. Porch swings are an alternative to using rocking chairs or gliders outdoors.

Canopy swings are similar to porch swings, but they are hung on a separate frame and are usually portable. They derive their name from the canopy installed for sun protection.
