How To Eat, Drink and Play Like a Real Housewife This Spring Break

Whether it's tennis lessons, an ice cream party, or even an obstacle course, The Real Housewives Ultimate Girls Trip casts are giving us plenty of ideas to party on spring break. 

By Caitlin Schunn

The clocks sprung forward and we’re all dreaming of warm, sunny days and spring break. To help inspire those dreams, consider this: No one does a vacation better than the casts of The Real Housewives Ultimate Girls TripAs you plan your own spring break, we’re taking a look at the best RHUGT-inspired spring break trip ideas so you can have the best possible girls trip.

How to Watch

Catch up on The Real Housewives Ultimate Girls Trip on Peacock or the Bravo App.

Season 1 took us to the white, sandy beaches of Turks and Caicos, while Season 2 allowed us to be guests at The Real Housewives Of New York City’s Dorinda Medley’s infamous Blue Stone Manor in Massachusetts. While taking a vacation at an ultra-luxe villa on the ocean or a huge mansion in the countryside isn’t realistic for most of us, there are plenty of girls’ trip activities you can do like the 'Wives this spring break.

Eat Like a Housewife: RHUGT-Inspired Food Ideas

Da Conch Shack is the first group meal we see on Season 1, courtesy of The Real Housewives of New York City’s Ramona Singer, who knows the owner, John. While you might not be able to eat conch fritters and grilled jerk chicken wings at the same place as the ladies, authentic conch and rum is served up and down both the east and west coasts and is easy to indulge in for your vacation.

Not your style? Well, who doesn’t love a pizza party? The Real Housewives of New York City’s Jill Zarin made her surprise appearance in Season 2 during a pizza party.

Dorinda shared with The Daily Dish that she keeps frozen pizza (Giordano’s stuffed pepperoni pizza to be precise — yum!) stocked in the Blue Stone Manor refrigerators. If frozen pizza isn’t your vibe, homemade pizza is always a hit, or you can head out to a pizza parlor wherever you’re on vacation.

Speaking of Italian, no one does a massive, Italian-style feast like The Real Housewives of New Jersey’s Teresa Guidice. The mother of four whips up massive Sunday meals (and has even written cookbooks about it) so it makes sense Teresa would get in the kitchen to make a meal on Ultimate Girls Trip. 

Whether it’s chicken parm or lasagna, Italian food is easy to whip up at home on spring break, or to get at a local restaurant wherever you’re vacationing.

Drink Like A Housewife: RHUGT-Inspired Drink Ideas

Fans of The Real Housewives of New York City know Dorinda is a believer of coffee reads (she was once joined by former New York 'Wives Heather Thomson and Carole Radziwill for one). A “read” means taking a drink of coffee and swirling it around in a cup, before reading the grounds in the bottoms and sides to predict the future.

Fast forward to RHUGT Season 2, where Dorinda again took the 'Wives for a coffee reading before dinner at Ventford Hall which might look familiar to fans. It’s the old Morgan estate — related to the family to The Real Housewives of New York City’s Sonja Morgan and scene of the infamous “Don’t Touch The Morgan Letters!” fight on the show.

While you might not be able to get a coffee read at this historic place, coffee reads should definitely be on your spring break activity list.

What’s a vacation without a tea party? The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Taylor Armstrong once threw a memorable $50,000 tea party for her 4-year-old daughter’s birthday, and more than a decade later, Taylor decided to recreate the tea party on vacation at Blue Stone Manor. Even if your own tea party at home comes with a side of drama, make sure you have cucumber sandwiches for guests to enjoy.

Play Like A Housewife: RHUGT-Inspired Spring Break Activities

No surprise here! In RHUGT Season 1, the Housewives spent plenty of time on boats.

“They pulled out all the stops on this trip,” The Real Housewives Of New York City’s Luann de Lesseps said on the show. “We had private yachts. I mean, it was pretty fabulous, I have to say.”

The Housewives also rode horses in the turquoise water of Turks and Caicos.

“I mean, that was incredible. That was a beautiful experience,” Luann said, before sharing how it compared to other iconic RHONY vacations. “Certainly beats out the camel. Or getting hit in the face with a volleyball.”

If luxury yachts and horseback riding in the ocean aren’t in your vacation budget, how about a canoe or kayak? Jill decided to relive her best camp experiences by taking the Season 2 'Wives canoeing on a local lake. Some of the ladies weren’t quite sure how to paddle and work the boats in the water, but this could definitely be a fun add to your vacation activity list.

Another activity option? A sound bath! The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills' Kathy Hilton had the ladies try one out after she experienced one with the Kardashians. Whether it’s for cleansing or for relaxation, the new trend also made an appearance on RHUGT Season 2 — although judging by the ensuing drama, the sound bath may not have worked.

Regardless, you can set one of these up at home or wherever you’re vacationing to bring some zen to your life.

Vacations aren't all about indulgence. Dorinda led her castmates in a rousing round of her '80s workout class, dubbed “Dorobics,” while on the trip. You can certainly try this at home though (minus the drama) to get your heart racing!

If aerobics aren’t quite your exercise jam, volleyball might be on your spring break list. The Season 1 Housewives tried their hand at the sport — with some success. Sand volleyball courts are the perfect place to get sand in your toes…even if you’re in the Midwest for spring break.

Watch Season 3 of The Real Housewives Ultimate Girls Trip for more ideas on Peacock. New episodes drop Thursdays.
