Everybody loves a free vacation, and the cast of The Brady Bunch is no exception. Several members of the cast members said their favorite episodes were when they got to travel to interesting locations. The TODAY show recently interviewed them about their best memories from making the beloved sitcom.

Eve Plumb, who played the put upon Jan Brady, has had a lifelong wanderlust that the show’s travel episodes helped form.

“I always liked the traveling,” she told the NBC morning show. “I still love to travel. It’s one of my favorite things to do. So when we got to go to the Grand Canyon was a lot of fun. When we got to go to Hawaii was fun.

She’s not the only Brady Bunch cast member who has fond memories of getting out of the studio. Both Barry Williams and Mike Lookinlad, who played Greg and Bobby Brady, said the Hawaii episode is one of their favorite memories.

“It was sure a lot of fun to go to Hawaii,” Williams said. “It was so very exciting for us surfing, exploring the island all the adventures that we got into, and Grand Canyon. (And) It was fun to get away from I get out of the studio and see the great outdoors.”

‘The Brady Bunch’ Cast Talk About Growing Up Together

Stardom can be a lonely place. While everyone is looking up at you, you end up on that pedestal alone. It’s part of the reason why so many child actors go through such public battles. But The Brady Bunch cast believes becoming famous as a group rather than on their own was a major blessing.

“We have a very unique experience in common,” Barry Williams told Closer Weekly. “We grew up with the show playing family members and went through all of the changes in our growth in front of the world. That created some unique and sometimes challenging circumstances, but we protected each other and took care of each other. That commonality puts us in a very small club.”

The cast said the experiences bonded them into a second family. Most of them have stayed close over the years despite going in very different directions. Christopher Knight, who played Peter Brady, said they all look forward to the times they get to see each other.

“These are folks that I met 53 years ago that I haven’t been able to get away from, and I wouldn’t want it any other way,” Knight said. “They’ve become family. They are family.”

And it’s why they do so many reunion specials. Recently, several members of the cast reunited for a new holiday film called Blending Christmas.

The movie is about a new couple that brings their families together for Christmas for the first time. And when it comes to melding families, who better to call than The Brady Bunch?
