If there's a time when we wish we could trade lives with reality stars, it's when they travel and go on vacation. Well, minus the vacation-induced drama. That is something we don't need in our own lives. We've put together a guide to help you book your next trip based on your favorite reality TV show.
We know what you're thinking—this has to be too good to be true. Reality stars don't vacation on the average budget. But Peta Phipps, publisher of Caribbean Living and Swanky Retreats, believes it is absolutely possible for viewers to live out their favorite reality TV vacations. "Avid viewers know the experiences inside and out and guided activities are available to almost anyone willing to get out there and go for it," Phipps shared with E!.
In fact, these resorts will welcome you with open arms! "Destinations and hotels benefit from these shows being filmed on site because the trips are aspirational and reach millions of viewers," the travel expert added. So with a little planning—and some saving—you can have the vacation you've always dreamed of.
Whether you want to be heading off to a tropical paradise or straight to the casino, this list of TV destinations will take you on vacations you will never forget. All you've gotta do to have the time of your life is take Real Housewives of New York City's Luann de Lesseps' legendary advice: "Be cool, don't be all, like uncool."
