Ranking The 'Full House' Vacation Episodes, From Hawaii To Disneyland

Warner Bros. Television

Back in the '90s, it was pretty routine for sitcoms to do vacation episodes. Watching TV is already an escape for viewers, but when you add an exotic locale on top of that? Well, that's just the ultimate escape. And although many classic shows did their own versions of the vacation episode, like Family Matters, Boy Meets World, and Step By Step, nobody did them quite like Full House. Full House vacation episodes were both plentiful and memorable — apparently the Tanners were loaded — and they definitely inspired many a '90s kid to take trips of their own. But which Full House vacation episode was the best?

First, you've got to ask yourself, "what makes a good Full House vacation episode?" For starters, obviously, you need to put the characters in a location other than San Francisco. Next, you really should involve the entire family. Some vacation episodes only feature one or two characters going on an escapade, and while these certainly fit the criteria of a vacation episode, they're going to be inherently weaker than an installment that features the whole gang going away together. And finally, and this is the most important criterion, is Adventures with a capital "A." The more adventures squeezed into a vacation episode, the better. So with these rules in mind, here's how all of Full House's vacation episodes stack up.
