Here’s Where Celebrities Vacation for the Holdiays

Stars, they’re just like us! This means they spend the holidays with their parents eating cheese and crackers and watching Netflix, right? Well, not exactly. Their holiday plans tend to be just a little more *fabulous*, but always full of fun, friends, family and, of course, food.

From Instagram-ready designer Christmas trees to festive holiday onesies, this is how our favorite celebs spend the holidays.

Emilia Clarke, London

Follow Khaleesi across the pond for a classic London Christmas. And when you’re ready to work off the Christmas roast and figgy pudding, hit up RUMBLE at Rebel1 for a kickboxing-style workout like the one Clarke follows to get in fighting shape for Game of Thrones.

Taylor Swift, Vail

She may famously celebrate the Fourth of July at her oceanfront Newport, Rhode Island, home, but come the the holidays, Taylor opts for a classic white Christmas. She brings her family (and her boyfriend of the moment) to Vail, a go-to skiing destination for the rich and fabulous. Get your knees, quads, glutes and core in ski-season shape at Barre Forte, which has four beautiful studios in the Denver/Boulder area.


You used to call me on my elf phone.

Jennifer Lawrence, Kentucky

While home in Louisville, Jennifer Lawrence took time out from seeing family and friends to pay a visit to the Kosair Children’s Hospital, where she spent nearly 12 hours visiting the brave young patients there. It’s a beautiful reminder that being healthy and fit is truly a gift, and that wellness is much bigger than just diet and exercise.

Kylie Jenner, LA

It’s sometimes hard to tell whether Kylie Jenner is working out or not, since the youngest member of the Kardashian-Jenner clan is basically athleisure #goals every single day. But when she decides to put her favorite sports bras and leggings to work, she joins her sisters at Gunnar Peterson’s ultra-exclusive private gym. Try a similar blend of plyometrics and functional fitness at BRICK in LA, New York, Boston and Chicago.

Bella Hadid, LA

Bella and Gigi take a break from jet setting to come home to Los Angeles for the holidays, and who could blame them? Sunny skies and cozy loungewear at Mom’s house really are the perfect break for a pair of international models. But Bella’s Christmas is only a short break from her intense training regimen with Rob Piela at Gotham Gym in New York City, and we promise, after a few months of training there, you’ll be ready for the Victoria’s Secret runway, too.


Merry Christmas from us 🙂

Nick Jonas, NYC

Since playing the role of an MMA fighter in Kingdom, Nick Jonas has hit a whole new level of hot, showing off his abs on magazine covers worldwide. Although he opted for something a little more low-key for Christmas with brother Joe in New York City, we know what you’re hiding, Nick—and we like it. If you’re looking for that lean ultimate fighter’s body, try real MMA workouts at the official UFC Gym.


Amazing Christmas. Loving this tree and our NYC @airbnb merry Christmas one and all

Lena Dunham, NYC

She’s the queen of body positivity, and one of our favorite people to follow on Instagram for her unfiltered, no-BS look at her life. This cute shot from last Christmas shows the NYC native in her home city with her sibling and boyfriend. And her workout routine is just as relatable. Dunham used Mile High Run Club to perfect her running form, and she can still be seen around NYC out for a jog.

Eva Longoria, Dubai

It’s not just the holiday season, it’s engagement season. And last Christmas found Eva Longoria in the UAE picking up quite the memorable souvenir. When she’s on the road, the frequent traveler swears by running as a way to stay fit and sightsee at the same time. Not a runner? Should you find yourself in Dubai, check out the local outpost of Physique 57, which also has locations in LA and NYC.


Ummmm so this happened….#Engaged #Dubai #Happiness

Gisele Bundchen, Boston

Tom Brady can’t help bragging about the angel on top of his Christmas tree, posting a sweet picture of Gisele Bundchen bringing the holidays to life in their Boston home. If you’re having a New England Christmas, be sure to check out the Boston Kung Fu Tai Chi Institute, where Gisele has been spotted multiple times working on her mental and physical strength.

Laura began her career as a travel writer, but too many dumplings and hours on the road led her to adding fitness classes to keep fit and see a different side of the local experience. From Barrecore in London to Sweat Garage in LA, she takes advantage of all ClassPass has to offer. She's based in New York City, which is always her favorite place to explore.
