Punta De Mita, Mexico — Kourtney Kardashian
Looking at any one of the Kardashian-Jenners' Instagram accounts, it seems like the family is flitting off to Mexico every few weeks. According to a travel post recently shared on Poosh, Kourtney Kardashian's new lifestyle website, that assumption is actually kind of true. "Mexico has always been one of the places I travel the most for a quick getaway," Kardashian wrote. "I go to Cabo and Punta Mita the most, both locations are close enough to not fight jet-lag, yet once I arrive it's like I'm worlds away."
The oldest Kardashian sister revealed that on her most recent trips to Punta De Mita, she has stayed at the Imanta Resort. The most affordable rooms at this resort cost upwards of $800 a night, so it might be out of the question for most people's budgets. Luckily, accommodations that are still close to the beach are available for much less on Airbnb. This $52 a night suite, for instance, is just 4 blocks from the beach, so you can emulate Kourt's experience and spend most of your time in the sun. This particular suite even has a rooftop terrace complete with a kitchen, which offers the same "cool indoor/outdoor vibe" Kardashian describes of the rooms at Imanta.

Paris, France — Karlie Kloss
Recently, Karlie Kloss traveled to Paris for fashion week. Given her occupation as a model, this could technically be counted as a work trip, however, Kloss did find some time to enjoy the city. In a video for her YouTube channel, she drove a rented car around Paris with pal and fellow YouTube star Emma Chamberlain, and during the ride, Kloss shared her favorite spots to visit while in France's capital.
Unlike with many celebrity-level vacation itineraries, most of Karlie's Paris recommendations are easy for anyone to experience. She took Chamberlain to her favorite bakery in the city, Stone Clove Bakery, and suggested the young YouTuber also hit up the Louvre and Musée d'Orsay. On the less accessible side of things, Kloss mentioned shopping on Avenue Montaigne, which is home to many high fashion stores like Louis Vuitton, Dior, and Chanel. While you might not be able to actually purchase anything in these upscale establishments, you can still stroll down the avenue for some window shopping.

Kacey Musgraves fandom is probably the only thing you thought you could have in common with the Jonas Brother in this video of them rocking out on a yacht in Miami Beach, but chilling on a boat in Miami isn't totally unachievable. There are actually several Miami-based boat rentals listed on Airbnb.
This 65-foot yacht is available for $630 a night. That may sound like a lot, but guess what? It has six beds, so why not gather up a group of friends split the cost? You could even make it a sibling trip like Joe, Kevin, and Nick did. Book the boat, step aboard, and crank the Kacey Musgraves for Jonas Brothers vacation vibes.

The Hamptons — Gwyneth Paltrow
So many celebrities have homes in the Hamptons including Gwyneth Paltrow, Jerry and Jessica Seinfeld, and Stella McCartney, but you don't have to own a sprawling property in the area to vacation there. If you want to stay in Amagansett, where Paltrow's home is located, GOOP suggests accommodations at The Inn at Windmill Lane. However, if you can't afford its summer nightly rate of $1,650, there are other options. Sea Crest on the Ocean has rooms starting at $140 a night and Windward Shores has condo rentals starting at $170 a night. More affordable Hamptons rentals are also available on Airbnb.
While in the Hamptons, head out to Montauk for a lobster roll at Duryea's. Paltrow orders hers with slaw and fries. Finally, in between beach sessions, pop over to East Hampton to shop the sale rack at Blue & Cream. You don't necessarily have to purchase anything while at the boutique to be like Gwyn because once the lifestyle guru actually realized she had forgotten her credit card while at the store with her daughter Apple.

Paradise Island, Bahamas — Jimmy Fallon
Last month, Jimmy Fallon took a family vacation to the Bahamas and stayed at Atlantis Paradise Island. So, if you have been dreaming about visiting Atlantis ever since seeing Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen vacationing there in their 2001 film Holiday in the Sun, now there's yet another celebrity to copy by going. Though the Tonight Show host likely stayed in an expensive private villa, accommodations within the resort are available starting at around $170 a night.
Like Mary-Kate and Ashley, Fallon and his family swam with some sea creatures in Dolphin Cay, and so can you. Book a Dip N' Discover session for around $140. In addition to participating in 15-year-old Olsen twin-approved activities while in the Bahamas, Fallon also did some more sophisticated things like dining at the restaurant inside the Graycliff Hotel in Nassau. You too can treat yourself to an extra-special dinner at this spot that's just a 15-minute drive from Atlantis.
