How to Spot Celebrities: Top 5 Destinations to Stargaze!

If you’ve ever wanted to spice up a so-so vacation or have something besides 50 slides of cactus plants on your roll of film, consider heading to one of these “celebrity hot spots.” You may just get lucky and snap a picture of a movie star sipping a cappuccino, a rock star getting a parking ticket, or a celebrity couple strolling hand-in-hand.

Forget about waiting for these pictures to appear in “The Enquirer,” check out these destinations and spot them for yourselfâÂ?¦

5. Dubai ~
Celebrities in the know are attracted to Dubai for its year-round sunshine, exclusive shopping, and universal bling-bling. You may just catch David and Victoria Beckam stepping onto an elevator in an exclusive inn, or Paris Hilton visiting the new 154-room Hilton Dubai Creek, an upscale addition to the local 5-star hotels in the area. Such “niche” properties catch the attention of “A-list” celebrities from all over the world who are looking for a world far away from the glitterati.

4. New York ~
The city that never sleeps is absolutely filled with celebrity personalities. Enjoy a cocktail in any one of The Big Apple’s top hotels and you’re bound to catch a glimpse of Mariah Carey, Spike Lee, or Scarlet Johansson. Stars are drawn to New York for its endless nightlife, stunning views, and upscale dining. Walk down Broadway or try a visit to Sava Spa to spot your favorite superstar.

3. Cote d’Azur ~
The French Riviera has been a hot spot for big name A-listers for decades. Home of the Cannes Film Festival, Cote d’Azur mixes phenomenal Mediterranean-type climate with the coolness of the haut couture worn by Hollywood’s elite. A trendy nightclub such as “Les Caves du Roi” in St. Tropez is sure to include stars sipping champagne in the VIP area. Just make sure you’re dressed for it.

2. Barbados ~
Britney Spears and Oprah Winfrey both purchased properties in this Caribbean paradise. Tiger Woods got married in the Sandy Lane hotel. You can’t find a better sport in Barbados than star spotting. The celebrity strip near Holetown is famous for its regulars, like Mick Jaggar and Sting.
You may even see Hugh Grant trying his hand at water skiing again, like during last summer’s holiday!

1. Los Angeles ~
You don’t have to look down on the Walk of Fame in Hollywood to find stars ~ they’re alive in their natural habitat in sunny California! Stars like Cameron Diaz, Justin Timberlake and Drew Barrymore are regulars at Runyon Canyon Park to hike with their pampered pooches. If you’re into pampering yourself, check out the Four Seasons Hotel Spa ~ and you just might run into Nicole Kidman or Jamie Foxx. Tom Cruise, George Lucas and even J.Lo can be seen “power lunching” at The Ivy. Hollywood is the Celeb-City capital, so you won’t have to wait long to spot your favorite superstars.

Celebrity spotters have multiplied like locusts in the last few years. It’s become the new pastime of star-struck fans. If you know where to go and have a little patience, you just might feel a little closer to the rich and beautiful power players ~ even if you can’t get past the velvet rope.
