With summer on the horizon, there's only one thing on our minds: vacation.
While we're already busy planning our dream trips and fantasizing about everything from beaches to exotic cuisines to the cutest Airbnb lodging, our favorite celebrities have been paving the way for our travels, giving us the best inspo for any vacation.
What to pack, what to eat and what to do while exploring your destination—Hollywood A-listers have the whole travel thing down to a science and we're taking notes.
Along with your passport (can't forget that!), make sure to grab a healthy snack like fruit, some antioxidant-rich tea and, of course, a good book before takeoff. Thanks, Meghan Markle!
If you're heading to the beach, keep the packing light like Kristin Cavallari and stick to the essentials: a fabulous bikini, minimal jewelry and a pair of comfortable sandals.

Make sure to tap into the native food, drink and cultural scene to get the full travel experience; take a cue from Sofia and Joe and do as the locals do!

Stay active! Make time for some sort of physical activity while on vacation, but make it fun. Take a long stroll through the city, go for a hike in the woods, swim laps in the pool or be like Katy and hop on a bike.
Don't be afraid to make it a family affair. It may take a little extra planning and preparation, but bringing the kiddos along is totally worth it when you get to see them experience new things for the first time and make long-lasting memories together.
Have a positive outlook, always. With travel comes some unexpected snafus and bumps in the road, but don't let a delayed flight or a piece of lost luggage ruin the entire experience. Remember: everything is going to be awesome!
Life gets busy and schedules don't always line up, but maintaining close friendships is important, as Emily Ratajkowski obviously knows. Ditch the big group and take a "best friend getaway" for some much-needed one on one time with just you and your bestie; it's much easier to get dinner reservations for two!

When traveling near or far, there's most always a museum, no matter where your destination takes you. Be sure to visit as many as you can in order to soak in as much of the city's history and culture as possible, like Madonna did on her trip to Cuba last summer.

Don't be afraid to indulge a little! Forget the diet when you're in an amazing city with equally amazing fare: eat the pasta, drink the wine and, yes, go ahead and order the dessert.
Finally, be adventurous! Do something a little out of your comfort zone or take a thrilling chance that gets your adrenaline pumping because, YOLO!
