Summer is here but it’s not quite the same. The novel coronavirus has not only changed the way people work, but it has also changed the way people vacation. Sure, countries are beginning to open to tourists and you could technically still travel, but it’s probably not wise to risk getting infected for a few short days of fun in the sun. I’ve put together a list of amazing television episodes that’ll make you feel like you’ve just stepped off the plane to a new destination without having to leave your couch. And the best part? It’s totally risk-free.
So, grab your suitcase, fill it with snacks, and let’s stream some of the best vacation TV episodes available.
Insecure: Season 4, Episode 7 “Lowkey Trippin’”
Season 4 of “Insecure” offered a little bit of everything, including a super sexy baecation for Andrew (Alexander Hodge) and Molly (Yvonne Orji). There was sun, sand, and hotel sex, which are the three key ingredients for the perfect romantic getaway. If you’d prefer a girl’s trip, revisit Season 3’s “High-Like.”
Friends: Season 9, Episode 23 “The One in Barbados”
Follow everyone’s favorite non-ethnically diverse group of “Friends” on a trip to Barbados, where Monica (Courteney Cox) get cornrows, Rachel (Jennifer Aniston) and Joey (Matt LeBlanc) explore their feelings for each other, Charlie (Aisha Tyler) kisses Ross (David Schwimmer), Chandler (Matthew Perry) kicks butt in ping-pong, and Phoebe (Lisa Kudrow) reunites with the love of her life.
Sex and the City: Season 3, Episode 13 “Escape from New York”
Destination: Los Angeles
In this episode, Carrie (Sarah Jessica Parker) and the rest of the ladies decide to take a trip to the city of Angels, where they realize there’s nowhere like home. The episode features a host of hilarious cameos from Hugh Hefner, Matthew McConaughey, and Carrie Fisher.
Saved by the Bell: Hawaiian Style
In this four-part miniseries, Zack (Mark-Paul Gosselaar) and the gang head to The Hawaiian Hideaway, a hotel run by Kelly’s (Tiffani Thiessen) grandfather. At the airport, they run into Mr. Belding (Dennis Haskins) and a group of principals and later convince them to stay at The Hawaiian Hideaway to increase revenue for Kelly’s family. There’s a rich businessman plotting to buy and demolish the Hideaway and Screech (Dustin Diamond) is believed to be a god to the natives.
If you’re a huge fan of the Bayside Bunch, you can also dive into season 4, which mostly takes place at the Malibu Sands Beach Resort. Remember when Zack fell in love with Leah Remini’s Stacey Carosi?
The Brady Bunch: Season 4, Episodes 3 “The Tiki Caves”
