    19 TV And Film Vacations From No Way To Yes, Please

    Genovia, the Barbarian airbnb, The White Lotus, and Stars Hollow are all getting Yelp reviews.

    There are many important takeaways from The White Lotus. It makes us examine how we treat each other. How money and power corrupt. Existentially, do we ever really know our friends and partners?

    Yet, while I understand the importance intellectually of breaking down those critical questions and quandaries at the end of every episode, I find myself thinking one thing: Man, I want to be on vacation at the White Lotus Sicily.

    Here is my ranking of fictional vacation spots from worst to best.
