It’s summertime and many of us are vaxxed, waxed, and ready to hit the road. The Kardashian and Jenner clan go above and beyond with everything they do including vacations. Throughout the years of Keeping Up With the Kardashians, the family has taken us along for the ride into their lavish lifestyle. Here are some ways to have a Kardashian-inspired vacation while on a budget.


The Kardashians went to Dubai and left us with tons of instagram pics giving us a sneak peek into their adventurous lives. During their stay, a fun activity they planned was four-wheeling through the sand dunes. While going to Dubai sounds like a blast, a cheaper option to get the same four-wheeling experience would be to remain in the United States. There are tons of great sand dunes in the U.S. from Colorado, New Mexico, California, and Utah. At all of these sand dunes, you can still get your family portrait with matching outfits, but there won’t be any choppers necessary.



New Mexico:

Reykjavik, Iceland

During their stay in Reykjavik, Iceland, the Kar-Jenner family stayed in a spa resort at Blue Lagoon geothermal bath. Kourtney Kardashian looked like she was glowing while they were soaking up the rejuvenating benefits of this lagoon for her birthday. Kim Kardashian called the blue lagoon the “fountain of youth” on Keeping Up With The Kardashians (Season 12, Episode 10). Although you might not be at one of the top 25 wonders of the world, there are smaller geothermal bath spots in the United States. Take a page from the Kardashian skincare book and get your glow on at a hot springs resort in Fairbanks, Alaska, Glenwood Springs, Colorado, or Morristown, Arizona.





Sometimes you want an excursion, but sometimes you just want to relax on vacation. The Kardashians made it to their extravagant resort in Thailand and soaked up some sun on Keeping Up With The Kardashians (Season 9, Episode 14-16). If you’re looking to sit by the ocean and take a siesta there are affordable beach resorts you can turn to. If you’re looking to stay in the U.S., Key Largo, Florida has great options and many include swimming with dolphins near the resort. For an abroad option, Rosalie Bay, Dominica has a tropical vibe with a cheaper plane ticket.



Vail, Colorado

There are countless activities to do in Vail, CO seen on Keeping Up With The Kardashians (Season 12, Episode 7). You can hit the lifts like the Kardashian and Jenner sisters or make snow angels with North and Kanye West. Skiing is an expensive activity, but there are more affordable options than Vail, CO. There are Colorado towns that have some affordable resorts including Salida, Silverton, and Dillon. Before you go make sure to find the resort with the best deals!



Costa Rica

While in Costa Rica, the Kar-Jenner family decided to incorporate bonding activities on Keeping Up With The Kardashians (Season 13, Episode 9-10). They strapped on their helmets and went tubing together downriver around the Arenal Volcano Hot Springs. There are many places to go white water tubing and some include waterfalls just like the gorgeous Kardashian vacation in Costa Rica in states like Georgia, Arizona, and Colorado. A good alternative to this is rafting if you want to stay connected to your friends and family. Make sure to hold on tight!




We can’t always do exactly what our favorite celebrity icons do, but it is always nice to find inspiration from them. It’s time to put on your favorite sunnies, grab your besties, and enjoy your vacation!
