Hawaii, the Bahamas, the Turks and Caicos: If you want to run into a tween star, you'd better have a tropical beach nearby.
According to Forbes Traveler, the young idols of the preadolescent set have travel habits that are as sophisticated as adults decades older, including trips to posh resorts like Atlantis in the Bahamas – a favorite of the Jonas Brothers and Jamie Lynn Spears – and the Kahala Hotel and Resort on Oaha, Hawaii, where you might spot Shia LaBeouf.

After a year of upheaval for her family, Lynne Spears exclusively tells PEOPLE.com that she's cherishing the "small things" like taking Britney's sons Preston, 3, and Jayden, 2, for a spin in her golf cart and planning a shopping trip with Jamie Lynn because 3-month-old Maddie is "growing out of all her clothes."
"Really wonderful things are happening now," Spears, 53, said Saturday. "It looks like things are looking up again."
PEOPLE caught up with Spears at the Mothers of Preschoolers (MOPS) 20th annual convention in Grapevine, Texas, where she was a surprise guest speaker. She shared with the crowd of 4,500 mothers what it's like to face criticism for the way she raised Britney, 26, and Jamie Lynn, 17.
"I had a perfect little plan," she said, explaining the parenting journey chronicled in her memoir, Through the Storm: A Real Story of Fame and Family in a Tabloid World. "But, you can't control the [kids]' peers, you can't control society and you do the best you can."

Meet your cousins!

Lynne Spears's much-discussed new book is due out Sept. 16 – but the cover was unveiled Monday.
Through the Storm: A Real Story of Fame and Family in a Tabloid World is a memoir, describing Spears's "story of what it was like being a mom and raising two very famous people," a spokesman for publisher Thomas Nelson told PEOPLE in June. The tome will not be a parenting guide, as many had expected.
Spears's memoir was intended for publication earlier, but was put on hold after daughter Jamie Lynn got pregnant. (Jamie Lynn Spears gave birth to daughter Maddie Briann in June.) Said the publisher at the time: "Lynne never stopped working on it because she wants to express her love for her children and tell their stories through a mother's eyes."
