Vacation Episodes From Your Favorite TV Shows

Vacation Episodes From Your Favorite TV Shows

It’s summertime, which means vacation – the beach, road trips, camping and all sorts of other travel shenanigans. Not all of us can be jet-setters though, so if you’re planning a staycation or just need something to do when its raining or when you are so sunburned that going outside is out of the question, here’s a handful of vacation episodes from your favorite TV shows to enjoy.

This list is in no way comprehensive, but it is organized by destination and vacation type so if Disney is your thing, try any 1990s/ABC family sitcom. If camping is more your style then there are a few episodes of Parks and Recreation that may do the trick. Also, I chose not to include any episodes that included travel for weddings, so I apologize in advance to any Friends fans out there.
