The women on the infamous Real Housewives franchises are always traveling. Last season, the cast of Bravo TV’s The Real Housewives of Atlanta took a grand safari trip in Africa. Here at Travel Channel, we like to focus on the cool cultural experiences that come with traveling — but where there are housewives, there’s always drama.
This new travel trend — sending Real Housewives casts to hot destinations — has caught on. The cast members of The Real Housewives of New York — Ramona, LuAnn, Sonja, Heather and maybe Aviva — will pack their bags to visit luxurious St. Barts, an 8-mile long island located in the northeastern Caribbean. We’ll have to wait and see exactly where the women go, but who wouldn’t want to visit St. Barts? Go sunbathing on Grand Cul de Sac Beach, shop in the expensive boutiques in Gustavia, or try the delicious French cuisine served at Hotel Le Toiny’s Le Gaiac restaurant. Minus the drama — they’re sure to have fun on this island oasis.
And what about The Real Housewives of New Jersey? The Gorgas, Guidices, Manzos, Wakiles and Lauritas have hopped onto 3 RVs for a road trip through Napa Valley and Sonoma, CA. Before their trek down Highway 29, the group makes a pit stop for a little RV camping at Pillar Point Harbor in Half Moon Bay. A visit to an undisclosed Napa Valley winery is the next stop on their road trip, and just in time to soothe flared tempers — or does that do just the opposite for this group?
With or without the Real Housewives, St. Barts and Napa Valley are amazing destinations to unwind. What’s your favorite destination to visit when you need a little rest and relaxation?
