Summer means two things for most Americans: A family trip and a lack of decent TV. However, if you're currently stuck at home, wishing you could find something better to watch, we've got an easy, free solution. You can just ride along with your favorite sitcom of choice!
Remember when sitcoms regularly had group vacations, played out over a series of episodes or even over two-hour movie events?
Sure, Modern Family still does an "away" adventure about once per season, but there was a time when a vacation episode was a full-fledged TV event. Shows you loved would ditch the multi-camera set-up and studio lighting for foreign locales and – gasp! – outside scenes that were actually filmed outside.
Some of these TV adventures happen to be viewable online, and we've collected all the ones we could find.

After starring as eternally chipper housekeeper Alice on The Brady Bunch from 1969 to 1974, actress Ann B. Davis – who died Sunday in San Antonio at 88 – left Hollywood behind to enjoy a quiet life with close friends.
"Her life centered around her local church," says Bishop Bill Frey, who, with his wife, Barbara, lived with Davis in an extended family household community starting in 1976.
"She was at St. Helena’s twice a week going to church and Bible study another day of the week."

Television and pop culture fans were saddened to learn Sunday that Ann B. Davis, best known as The Brady Bunch's indefatigable housekeeper Alice, died at the age of 88 after a fall in her Pennsylvania home.
Fortunately, bereft fans can take solace in the fact that The Brady Bunch will likely be in syndication until the end of time. To that end, here are five clips that show Davis at her best in the role of Alice, the housekeeper everyone wanted in their lives, whether they knew it or not.

Early baby boomers knew her as Charmaine "Schultzy" Schultz, the man-hungry receptionist on TV's 1955-59 The Bob Cummings Show. Late baby boomers knew her as Alice Nelson, the eternally optimistic housekeeper on a 1969-74 slice of fantasy Americana called The Brady Bunch.
But no matter the character she played, actress Ann B. Davis, who died Sunday at 88, was unquestionably one thing to all audiences: lovable.
"All of us wish we had an Alice," Davis told PEOPLE in 1992. "I wish I had an Alice."

He made his name as a member of one of TV's most adored families, and now Barry Williams is expanding his own "bunch."
Williams, 57, who played eldest son Greg Brady on The Brady Bunch, recently welcomed a baby girl with his girlfriend, Elizabeth Kennedy, according to RumorFix.com – which reports the new arrival's name is Samantha Rose.
It's the first child for Kennedy. Williams, who now runs The Greg Brady Project, has a 9-year-old son, Brandon Eric, from a previous relationship.

Sherwood Schwartz, who created two of the most popular sitcoms of the '60s and '70s, Gilligan's Island and The Brady Bunch, died Tuesday in Los Angeles of natural causes, surrounded by his family, a family member announced. He was 94.
Not only did Schwartz send the passengers and crew of the Minnow on a three-hour tour, one that lasted from 1964 to 1967 (and forever after in reruns), but he also wrote the Gilligan's theme song.
He did the same for the 1969-74 Brady Bunch, about a widow and a widower with a lot of kids – and a sagacious housekeeper.
And while critics threw bricks at both shows, the public lapped them up – possibly, at least in the case of The Brady Bunch, because he grounded the show in some type of reality.

My Fair Brady stars Adrianne Curry and Christopher Knight have separated on what is the fifth anniversary of their wedding.
"After starting a relationship with what seemed to be irreconcilable differences, the couple has reached a period where those differences are no longer appreciated," their manager, Phil Viardo, said in a statement to the Web site Hollyscoop.com. "The decision was mutually reached after it became clear to both that some perspective was needed in order to assess their unique union."
This was Curry's first marriage and Knight's third. They had no children.
