* ''{{Anime/Pokemon}}'' has two episodes where the gang visit the resort Porta Vista. Notably this is exclusive to the anime. The episode 'Beauty & the Beach' revolved around a beach BeautyContest. The follow-on 'Tentacool & Tentacruel' subverted this, as it turned into a plot about stopping an infestation of Tentacool from destroying the city.



** {{Subversion}}: one entire episode was built around the family stuck in a traffic jam on their way to the vacation.
** PlayedStraight: the previous episode was them at a water park. The traffic jam episode was the drive home. And the B-plot with Dewie was a 2-parter.
** Another played straight, but also played 'with': Malcolm and Reese try to snealk off to 'Burning Man' only to be caught by their parents...who decide it sounds like a delightful family vacation. Reese embraces the spirit of Burning Man, Lois does too yet still acts like its a family fun time, Malcolm gets into it in a sense but can't completely let go, Hal tries to act like its any other vacation but his conservative nature and hatred of the free spirited nature of the festival makes him hole up in the RV (the other people thinking he's making a live art piece about pretenciousness), and Dewey....is forced to do everything Hal doesn't want to.
* ''Series/SabrinaTheTeenageWitch'' had a two or three part season finale in some sort of beach resort.
** Also, an episode at Disney World.

In an ongoing series that normally takes place in a few fixed locations, the Vacation Episode is a one-off episode where the characters leave their familiar grounds for a well-deserved rest. The vacation will invariably be set in a faraway and exotic location for maximum impact; given the higher costs of shooting on location, the episode will often be [[StoryArc longer than usual]], to make best use of the budget. A SpecialGuest or three might also be included. Expect some jokes at the expense of the city, country or people visited, targeting NationalStereotypes, [[FunnyForeigner funny foreigners]] or a CultureClash between our protagonists and the foreigners. When jokes are made at the expense of the protagonists' own nation or culture it's MyCountryTisOfTheeThatISting.
