Los Angeles

Salt Lake City to Los Angeles
The show: Olivia Rodrigo: driving home 2 u
The vacay vibe: Lo-fi car ride
Daydreaming about the GUTS tour? Just head out on a road trip alongside Olivia as she spills on the behind-the-scenes writing process for her first album SOUR. Musical interludes abound. 

Sherman Oaks, Los Angeles
The show: Never Have I Ever
The vacay vibe: #NoReturnTicketNeeded
Devi's world isn't just a nice place to visit, it gives the comfort of a place you could stay forever. By the time you make it through four seasons of the show, you'll feel totally at home in her suburban SoCal world.

Bel Air, Los Angeles
The show: Bel-Air
The vacay vibe: Luxe life
Put on your tiara and live vicariously through main character Will as he descends upon the glam West Coast neighborhood and goes from rags to riches in this Fresh Prince reboot. 


The show: My Life with the Walter Boys
The vacay vibe: Optimal outdoorsy energy
This series follows Jackie, a teen who's in for a mega culture shock when she moves from the bustling crowds of New York City to the rustic beauty of rural Colorado.


The show: Doogie Kamealoha, M.D.
The vacay vibe: Tropical love triangle
This show is truly the perfect mix of serious drama (Lahela is a teen doctor/brilliant prodigy dealing with family probs, growing up *and* working in a hospital) and relaxation goals (the Hawaiian beaches will make you want to reset your phone wallpaper ASAP). 


The show: Cruel Summer
The vacay vibe: Southern Gothic
It might be a Lover song, but this twisty show is going to put you in your reputation era. The first season proves that everything—even a mystery—is bigger in Texas.

As the title suggests, this series is very much a blast from the past—made for the lovers of a classic comeback and all things '90s style. 


The show: Saturdays
The vacay vibe: The roller rink
Warning: After watching just one episode of the "We-B-Girlz" skate crew's adventures in the Windy City, you'll be saying "bodacious" and listening to the Spice Girls on loop. Sorry, we don't make the rules. 


The show: Stranger Things
The vacay vibe: Midwest mayhem
Hawkins might not be a real place, but Stranger Things still captures the feel of a small town in the Midwest (with way more monsters and mysteries, obvi). 

East Coast

The show: The Summer I Turned Pretty
The vacay vibe: Breezy beach house
We're not sure what we're more envious of: Belly's romantic life (love quadrangles, oh my...) or the fact that she spends her summers living the East Coast "quiet luxury" aesthetic. 

New York City

The show: Gossip Girl
The vacay vibe: Met Gala, but make it high school
Fashion. Frenemies. Full-on drama. XOXO, Gossip Girl. 

New Jersey

The show: Are You There God? It's Me, Margaret

Based on the classic coming-of-age book, this story of a teen girl dealing with all the highs and lows of growing up is set in 1970 and has the fashion to prove it.
