Try Not To Laugh At These Hilarious Vacation Photos
A family took a lovely trip to the petting zoo and snapped pics to remember the occasion. Little Jimmy looks so sweet hugging that baby goat.
Wait… has anybody seen sis?
A drive-through animal park can be a fun family destination. Unless, of course, you’re this poor kid that was accosted by an overzealous horse.
His mom better put a quarter in the “therapy jar”.
Don’t Turn Around
Fishing can be such a relaxing hobby, and this man looks so proud of his catch. Unfortunately, the bear behind him looks pretty hungry.
Hopefully, the Grizzly was just posing for a selfie and didn’t rip that guy’s face off.
Just Like Home
Creating art in the sand on the beach can sometimes be grueling.
Fortunately, this man created exactly the piece he needed!
Visiting an aquarium can be a fun way for a family to bond. It’s so exciting to see the marine life up close and personal. Unless you’re this little girl who freaked out when a dolphin posed for the photo.
That dolphin looks slightly mischievous.
Wave To The Camera
This family posed for a pleasant vacation photo in the ocean when a massive wave overtook them. They look pretty shocked about the entire experience.
We feel like this amazing pic is just begging to be a family Christmas card.
This perfectly timed photo is priceless. That squirrel jumped in front of the camera at just the right moment, much to the delight of the couple in the background.
It looks like it’s just part of the family.
A person posted this hilarious family moment on Awkward Family Photos and said, “We met Bubbles the Elephant. She took a liking to my Dad.”
What a treat it was to have a professional photographer nearby to catch the action from every angle.
Things took a turn for this poor woman when she posed with an alligator while on vacation. That is a look of sheer panic.
The pearl beads on that gator didn’t make it seem less threatening at all.
Seagulls crashed the party in this perfectly timed photograph. It captured the chaos of the moment, that’s for sure.
The screaming lady is our favorite part of the entire scene.
A Room With No View
A disgruntled traveler posted this sad photo online along with the caption, “The View From My 65th Floor “Grand Times Square View” Hotel Room.”
That’s just insulting if you ask us.
Tourists often pose for a photo where they look like they’re holding up the Leaning Tower of Pisa. These two are just slightly off.
By the looks of it, they aren’t the sharpest tools in the shed.
This tourist shows us the right way to pose with the Leaning Tower of Pisa. She totally looks like she tipping it over with her foot.
We can’t help but wonder how many people have snapped a photo just like this one.
A reader submitted this funny vacation photo to Awkward Family Photos, along with the caption, “My in-laws’ idea of an amazing vacation. It smelled worse than the name. Oh, how we would love to go to a real tropical beach!”
We can practically smell the stink permeating off this photograph.
A parrot, a monkey, and a little boy pose for a photograph on the beach. Does that sound like the opening of a joke to anyone else?
We love how laid-back the monkey looks.
A traveler posted this unfortunate hotel fail along with the caption, “Me and my business partner decided to share a hotel room in order to save some money. We weren’t expecting this.”
Talk about a room with a view!
Pitch A Tent
These campers might want to consider getting a bigger tent. It’s hard to count exactly how many people are piled on top of each other.
This is a perfect example of why camping and alcohol don’t mix.
Want to go to the beach, but none of your friends are available to accompany you?
No problem, go with your goat!
Iguanas are good at photobombing, too. This pic of a woman posing in Puerto Rico went viral when it was posted to social media.
We love it when nature jumps into the frame.
All Work And No Play
This camper literally took the office with him on a camping trip. Something tells us he’s not having a very relaxing vacation.
Hang up the phone and go have fun, dude.
The parents wanted to immortalize this beautiful moment between brothers and sisters on the beach.
Unfortunately, a small breeze hit one of the big sisters hard!
A reader sent this family pic to Awkward Family Photos and said, “Dolphin jumped in front of my parents’ photo whilst in the USA.”
We have to fight the urge to hug that dolphin.
It can be such an adventure to encounter wildlife while on vacation in exotic locations. One minute, you’re relaxing in the ocean, and the next, you’re negotiating with monkeys.
“Give us the bananas and no one gets hurt!”
This family took an epic vacation pic while they were at Disney World. Dad jumped into action and posed in the perfect position in front of Alladin’s Lamp.
We totally want to go on vacation with this crew.
Beach trips can be so romantic. This couple posed for a beautiful photo together on the beach.
Too bad Rover had to ruin it.
Just One Of The Girls
This vacation photo went viral after a tour guide placed a friendly stingray on the shoulders of three tourists. This has got to be the most epic photobomb of all time.
The ladies may look less than thrilled, but the stingray looks like it’s having the best vacation, ever.
These kids were probably expecting a little pleasure ride, but their expressions lead us to believe that this activity is less fun than expected.
And what about Leo, who goes straight for a dive?
Some people spend their vacations photographing everything they see rather than enjoying the moment and making memories.
But this man couldn’t pass up a photo of this garbage, come on! Foreign trash is so beautiful! So exotic!
Is He Drowning?
The couple seemed quite happy with their experience, but their guide did not seem to enjoy his moment.
What’s wrong with him? Is he drowning? This would be a good time to stop kissing and help this poor man!
Look At My Belly
When we are on vacation, we don’t want to miss anything, and we want to bring back as many memories as possible with us.
This man saw something he absolutely wanted to capture while walking down the street, and nothing was going to stop him from photographing it. Everyone sees my belly? So what? The view is great, it deserves a picture!
What better way to create the perfect family vacation photo than wearing huge sombreros?
However, it would have required the cooperation of both little girls. They don’t seem to be feeling well. Should we be concerned about their condition?
We can’t say it enough: it’s very important to wear sunscreen when exposed to the sun for a long period of time.
But what do we do when we run out of sunscreen? We cover our bodies with mud, of course!
Is this a new tanning method we haven’t heard of? Or is it a little snack, just in case?
In fact, the young girl is clearly trying her best to relieve her sunburn! Indeed, tomatoes can relieve burns and help rebuild the skin. Take notes!
Traveling by bus can be long and uncomfortable, especially when you want to take a nap.
But this man figured out how to solve the problem. If he doesn’t bring any luggage, he can use the space in the baggage compartment to take a nap, right?
There is nothing more relaxing than being rocked by the waves while lying on a tube.
But sometimes it’s hard to get on that tube! This pink flamingo seems to be recalcitrant. He doesn’t want a passenger today!
The White House
Come on, everyone, let’s take a poorly framed picture in front of the White House! Everyone smiles!
But no. Not the girl on the left. She’s sick of pictures. Why do we have to take pictures of EVERYTHING?
All this father wanted was a nice vacation picture with his child.
But instead of a nice picture, he ended up with a sore nipple. Ouch!
Nothing more common than taking a couple’s selfie on vacation. Especially when you are in such a beautiful place!
Was the presence of the creepy clown planned in the photo, though? Is it an unwanted plus one? He scares us a little!
Taking a selfie in panoramic mode is a good way to capture more of the landscape in the background.
However, you need to make sure you don’t move. Sneezing while taking a panoramic selfie can result in an evil, two-headed girlfriend.
This family is very close and nothing will stop them from wearing matching suits if they want to.
They have to wear wetsuits? No problem, they also have identical ones!
We All Know What It Is
No lies here. We all know exactly what that hole in the rock and the trace just above it remind us of.
This father also knows very clearly what it reminds him of. They had to immortalize it so the kids could enjoy the view when they are old enough to see what adults see!
Visiting a cemetery, especially if it is a large, well-known cemetery containing the remains of celebrities, well, that is common.
Taking a picture of a particularly artistic grave is common too. But taking pictures of people in a cemetery? That’s very creepy.
Wearing sunscreen is important, especially when vacationing in sunny Florida. But it’s also important to apply sunscreen everywhere on the skin.
It looks like someone had fun creating artwork on this family’s back with spray-on sunscreen!
I’m Sure You’ll Fit!
You’re small enough, I’m sure you fit in the carry-on compartment!
Indeed, she does. From the look on her face, however, she seems to be afraid of having to spend the entire flight in there!
Children are so innocent that it sometimes leads to hilarious situations.
How much did the parents cry with laughter when their child tried to feed that kangaroo?
Sometimes it’s hard to find the right time to have a snack when you’re traveling.
But when hunger strikes this woman, she has to eat. Never mind the Grand Canyon and the photo, she wants to eat her banana!
Conquering The Roller Coaster
Amusement parks are serious business. This man is not afraid of anything, and will not back down from any ride!
This man is ready to conquer this roller coaster, no matter what it takes! Is he trying to hide his terror? Maybe he is. But he seems to be ready to fight!
If we look quickly, this picture seems quite lovely. A nice family picture on vacation!
However, it seems that the young boy had a little accident, and he seems to be quite embarrassed. His family doesn’t seem to really care about the situation, though.
No Life Jacket, No Problem!
There is nothing more pleasant than swimming in the sea when you are traveling. Unless you can’t swim, of course.
But don’t worry! No life jacket? No problem! Empty water bottles full of air will surely do the job!
I want to take a picture with a monkey, it will be a nice souvenir!
At the moment of taking the picture, did the man realize what was happening on his head? The people behind him don’t seem to be sure how to react.
All this family wanted was a nice picture to remember their vacation at Paradise Cove Luau.
This young boy, however, had other things on his mind than smiling at the camera as they took the picture.
All the girls in this picture really look like they’re enjoying the moment, don’t they?
Those are some pretty cheerful faces and screams of joy! They are having so much fun on the water!
This parent brought their daughter to the beach in search of shark teeth.
“I found teeth!” Not quite the kind of teeth they expected, though.
Just Do Me
The 90s were very different from the times we live in today. This father decided to wear a t-shirt saying “Just do me.” while on family vacation.
Even his daughter finds his shirt inappropriate and doesn’t want to be photographed with him.
Summer 68 or 69. This woman was visiting Las Vegas and ran into Sonny Bono, of the famous duo Sonny & Cher, on the poolside of their hotel.
Sonny, enjoying the sun in his very small speedo, kindly accepted to take a picture with her. Sonny was really a very generous artist and gave his fans their money’s worth!
These gentlemen created the world’s first picnic table boat, appropriately named “Picnic Launch”. Their level of ingenuity is quite impressive.
We can’t decide if this is tacky or completely genius?
A trip to Disney World is supposed to be a beautiful moment filled with magic that children will remember for a lifetime.
This child will definitely remember his trip to Disney World, but not for the right reasons!
This man wanted to take a nice picture of his girlfriend on the waterfront. How sweet!
But did he see what was written on the sign? By the look on the woman’s face, she definitely did.
Notre Dame de Paris is definitely one of the most famous cathedrals in Paris.
This poor woman, however, had the misfortune of going there at the same time the cathedral was engulfed in flames in April 2019. She can at least say that she witnessed a historic event…
The “I’m flying” scene from the movie Titanic is one of the most famous. After all, it’s a beautiful and ultra-romantic scene even though the characters have just met!
This couple tried to recreate this scene on the front of a ship, but no luck. The woman received a seagull directly on the nose.
Who wants to leave the pool, or their poolside chair, to go pee?
It’s much easier to relieve yourself in the pool! Plus, it’s super discreet; clearly, no one notices what she’s doing.
The Finest What?
This family visiting New York wanted to take a picture with all the greatest attractions the city has to offer.
Of course, this place had to be part of their memorable trip! After all, it’s home to the finest… Wait, what?!
Lady Of The Desert
This statue, named “Lady of the Desert”, is located in Beatty, Nevada. But what a strange statue!
Why is this Lady of the Desert cubic and naked? Note that she even has pubic hair! Why would a child want a picture with that?
Cute, Cozy House
Instead of staying in a hotel, this man decided to rent a house for their vacation in St John, Canada.
They were all surprised when they arrived and saw the artwork covering the living room wall! Is this painting a reflection of the owners of the house? That’s a lot about this lady!
So Many Mines
The father of this family particularly likes to visit mines and quarries. One can imagine, however, that this is certainly not the favorite activity of his children.
Clearly, the two young boys have no interest in this umpteenth mine that they visit. The youngest is still very cute with his too bit rubber coat and helmet, too!
Hanging The Baby
When you have a large family, it’s sometimes hard to find enough room to seat everyone. Especially if you have a baby who needs a high chair.
This mom didn’t want to bring the high chair on vacation. But what’s the point? Hanging the baby’s seat on a pole is a very effective alternative!
The Boy Has Fallen
Ha, the typical family photo in the water on a beach vacation. Common, but always cute to look at!
This father, however, did not notice that his oldest son, who was supposed to be standing and smiling, fell and is swallowing a large amount of salt water. He could use a little help, sir!
What A View
Hiking is not always easy, especially depending on the length and elevation of the hike.
This family wanted to rest after a long hike, but this bench was the only one in the area. No one thought it would be nice to place the bench in the other direction when they installed it?
This woman wanted to take a picture with this horse statue by taking a funny pose.
She didn’t realize, at the time, how it would look. This picture is very suggestive!
Sometimes you can’t afford a big vacation, so you make do with what you have. This family decided to go to Wisconsin Dells and enjoy a hot tub located right off the street.
Why do they have floats in the hot tub? Why is the dad wearing a hoodie? Why is that little girl sitting in her chair pouting? So many questions!
The Crop Top
The Grand Canyon is a must-see when visiting Arizona. So when you’re there, it’s out of the question not to immortalize this moment!
Even if this father obviously packed his suitcase wrong and has to wear his wife’s shirt. Or one of his kids’? Anyway, nice crop top, man.
Demonic Minnie Mouse
Any child would be happy to meet Minnie Mouse. But not the Disney World version anymore, not really this one.
This Minnie Mouse seems demonic, not to be trusted at all. This girl is much braver than us!
When you visit a zoo, you definitely expect to see animals up close. This woman, however, was not expecting to see this ostrich that up close, obviously.
Oh, hello there. Can I be part of the picture, too? I can smile!
It Will Be Fun, They Said
Come to the beach with us, it will be really fun!
We have the impression that this man did not live the same day at the beach as the women he accompanied!
Making A Splash
What was meant to be a nice photo of this couple in the pool quickly turned into the strangest photo of their trip.
Is it us or does this man look distressed? Did he voluntarily photobombed this picture or did someone manage to throw him in front of the camera with force?
There’s nothing better than a nice ice cream cone on a nice day of vacation at the beach!
Unless our cherry cone suddenly tastes like bird poop… Gross!
No one really likes to use a chemical toilet, but sometimes, depending on where you are, there is no other option.
As if using this kind of toilet wasn’t unpleasant enough, it had to fall on its side! What a traumatic experience!
We think we have found one of the most original vacation photos in a long time. We love the concept!
Group photos at the beach all look a little similar, but we’ve never seen this. Even their postures seem to fit the face drawn in the sand, it’s amazing!
Poorly Planned Burial
Getting buried in the sand up to your neck when you go to the beach is a fairly common activity, except that you have to choose the right location.
Someone forgot to check how far the waves could reach before burying her, and now, she’ll have to drink her way through!
Beware Of The Pool Noodle
Pool noodles are great for many reasons, but especially for playing this kind of trick on your friends.
The moral of this story: never hold a pool noodle close to your face if you are not alone!
If there’s one thing you wouldn’t expect, it’s to be stopped while trying to ride your bike by a curious pig!
But this pig would like to move faster. Maybe he can get into the little basket and get transported?
New Conehead Member
Remember the 1993 movie Coneheads? Aliens with conical skulls crashing on Earth?
We’re not sure what happened to this woman’s picture, but according to her passport, she’s a new member of the Conehead family!
Who said being a nun was boring? They can do a ton of activities, like gardening, sewing, or even surfing!
This nun even has a swimming uniform, and she seems to be doing pretty well. Nuns are so cool!
Not Such A Good Idea
The next time you feel like going to the beach with your car, we advise you to think twice, if only to launch or retrieve your boat.
These people learned this the hard way when instead of having their boat in the water, they ended up with the car in the sand, literally!
It’s not uncommon to come across couples who have taken care to match their clothes, but this is something.
There is no more patriotic than this couple. Their effort does deserve a minute of silence, but mostly to avoid saying something inappropriate.
Looking Good, Guys!
These gentlemen like to look good in all circumstances, whether they are at a meeting, a happy hour or in the middle of a river.
You have to admit, it’s a success! You do look good, guys! A little wet, maybe, but it almost doesn’t show!
Aren’t all the members of this group really cute with their colorful bear costumes and the facial makeup of the corresponding color?
We do not know under what circumstances they had to put on these costumes, but very few of them seem happy to be there.
Everyone likes to imagine they’re a diving athlete at some point, when they have the chance to dive from a diving platform.
Despite all his efforts, this man will definitely fail his dive. It will be a nice belly flop, though!
All The Parrots
Do you like parrots? In any case, we hope this family does, otherwise, this photo won’t be very memorable for them.
That’s really a lot of parrots. Sometimes, more is not necessarily better.
You Must Follow The Instructions!
A dromedary ride is a must when visiting Egypt, but you must follow the instructions the guide gives you.
Obviously, this man missed some instructions, and because of that, he fell head first on the ground. His Arabic must be out of practice!
Tough Frisbee Game
Playing Frisbee may seem fun and safe, but think again! Frisbee can be a very dangerous sport, especially if you are not very good at it.
This woman didn’t quite understand the game. You have to catch the Frisbee with your hands, not your face!
He’ll Fear Dromedaries All His Life
A petting zoo is fun, you can pet all sorts of cute and fun animals. But it’s only fun until a camel tries to eat your baby’s fingers.
This young boy will definitely fear dromedaries for the rest of his life, and so will his father.
Another Reason Not To Wear Crocs
We have a hard time understanding the Crocs fashion. Sure, they’re comfortable, but that’s their only quality, really.
Not only are Crocs ugly, but they make your feet ugly if you wear them outside. Don’t wear Crocs!
What Did She Do?
But what did this girl do to end up face first in the sand like that?
Did she try to perform an acrobatic move? To hit a volleyball? Or did she stumbled into a grain of sand? It’s a mystery!
Which Way Did He Come Out?
This photo was taken during a vacation in Cyprus, where there is a not so nice elephant slide.
Who thought this slide was a good idea? Clearly someone who doesn’t appreciate children. It’s easy to see how they feel about them!
For their vacation in Iceland, a father took his boys to visit The Phallic Museum.
We don’t have words to express how this boy doesn’t seem thrilled at all to pose with this monstrosity.
Maybe A Bit Tight
What could be more enjoyable for a family outing than climbing in the trees or going rock climbing?
But how comfortable is the father with his harness? It’s a good thing he already has two kids, because he might not be able to have any more after this!
Nothing better than a nice family vacation under the Australian sun, especially with prawns!
This family loves prawns. So much so that they take pictures of themselves like it’s a really big deal. Somebody, show them the world!
Questionable Renaissance Art
Works from the Renaissance are known to be very natural and suggestive, let’s put it that way.
This statue is a little too suggestive and strange for this girl’s taste. She looks totally disgusted. Like, come on, mom!
Was There A Sign?
These children seem to have a lot of fun climbing and playing with this pipe in the water.
Did anyone notice the sign, though? Parents? Anyone?
When you have a good time with friends, you definitely want to capture it!
This sea turtle also wanted to immortalize this good moment with its new friends.
There’s nothing better than enjoying the sun when you have a comfortable place to do so.
This seal was tired of sunbathing on the rocky ground. Who could blame it?
A reader submitted this sad photo to Bored Panda and wrote, “My parents got to visit Mt. Rushmore today for the first time. The view is spectacular!”
Mother Nature could care less about their vacation itinerary.
A fan submitted this funny pic of a woman sitting in a beach chair in the ocean. They wrote the caption, “Grandma fell asleep. Then the tide came in.”
Somebody needs to go get Grandma out of the water!
Sometimes it’s hard to make a choice. Stay home and relax on the couch or go to the beach and enjoy the weather?
This couple decided to combine the best of both worlds.
Shape Of The Mountain
There is nothing more relaxing than lying on the beach and enjoying the sound of the waves.
But did this man notice that he fits in very well with the mountain scenery?
A day at the beach is definitely fun, but who knew you could get trapped by a giant bucket?
It’s amazing what a good perspective can do!
This poor woman just wanted to take a nice photo with a llama. That scary bird had other ideas.
Does anyone else think the llama looks like it’s snickering about the situation?
Welcome To Canada
When you travel, it is normal to want to know as much as possible about the culture of the place you are visiting, and to want to immerse yourself in it as much as possible.
This family traveled to Canada and took this very representative picture. It is known that in Canada, they hunt polar bears in ice caves all the time!
Smile, He’s Alive!
Nothing will ruin this family’s vacation. Is that clear? Absolutely NOTHING!
Okay, Fred had a little accident. But he’s alive, so come on, everyone, smile for the camera!
Family Photo Fail
These parents had the best of intentions when swinging their children for a family photo session on the beach. Thankfully, the kids more than likely landed on soft sand.
Which is a good thing because that red-headed little boy probably took quite a nose-dive.
The Scariest Place On Earth
Families attend character breakfasts at Disney World for a chance to have a close encounter with their favorite Disney characters. This family was lucky enough to meet Tigger.
Everyone wasn’t happy about it.
This couple went to extreme measures to make sure they had a relaxing vacation and brought their recliner and television along with them on a boat ride.
We can’t help but wonder where they got their electricity.
Everything is beautiful and exotic when you travel to another country, isn’t it?
It was definitely worth it to take a picture of this girl in front of this factory. What a beautiful scenery!
In Need Of Air
Protecting yourself from water is essential when visiting waterfalls, otherwise you may spend the rest of the day all wet.
However, someone should explain to the child on the right how to use a plastic poncho. Will they make it out alive? Can they even breathe?
Too Much Momentum
This son just wanted to take a nice picture with his parents during their trip to Sydney, Australia. After setting the timer on his camera, however, he ran to join them on the railing, but he had too much momentum and fell backwards into the pond behind him.
At least he didn’t have the reflex to hold on to his father, who would have surely fallen with him!
This family was having a great time at Dollywood, Dolly Parton’s theme park. Once inside the Tennessee Tornado roller coaster, however, that was no longer the case.
This young girl is absolutely terrified. Daddy, take care of your daughter, she seems possessed!
Hungover Nesquik Rabbit
What kid wouldn’t want a picture with the Nesquik Rabbit? They all love the product!
But clearly, it’s not chocolate milk that this Nesquik Rabbit drank the day before. He doesn’t look good at all!
It is difficult to find original ideas for family photos on vacation. So this family decided to go for the classic “we all jump together in front of the sea while holding hands!”
But oops! Daddy lost his grip and the youngest one was gone! Are you ok? Yes? Ok, let’s try again!
Vacation From Hell
Although a vacation should be about resting, it is sometimes more exhausting than anything else! Someone even titled this moment as “Vacation From Hell”. That must have been intense!
This teenager is fed up, and his brother behind him is too. They just want to sleep. Give them a bed, someone!
What a beautiful family photo with a Polish theme! Really, it’s not awkward at all!
The traditional clothes are questionable, the sled dogs look like they’re wondering what they’re doing there and the big bear is a bit creepy, but otherwise it’s a great photo!
A trip to Thailand is not complete without an elephant ride.
These tourists even had the chance to experience something out of the ordinary as the male they were riding suddenly had an uncontrollable urge for the female in front of it.
When a child is potty training, it is not a process that can be put on hold when you go on vacation.
So this mom brought her daughter’s potty, and when the girl felt like going to the bathroom, they stopped in a diner parking lot. How convenient, a potty can be put anywhere! And of course, this absolutely memorable moment had to be captured!
Exorcism Roller Coaster
Not everyone reacts the same way on a roller coaster. Some people are more afraid than others.
But it is much more than fear that can be read in the face of this woman in the second row. It is literally the devil that seems to come out of her body!
Disney World Is Fun!
Let’s go to Disney World for our next family vacation, it will be super fun!
This family really looks like they are having the time of their lives at Disney World! We have never seen such happy faces!
