The sun is coming out and Summer is on its way. As you make plans for your Summer vacation, make sure you have the items you need. Whether your getaway takes you to the mountains or the beach, you will need to prepare for the sun.
COVID-19 Restrictions have made traveling difficult. Life is returning to normal in most places, but precautions are still being taken. Stay safe and enjoy your summer vacation by taking these items with you:
Sunglasses are a Summer essential. From the glare off windshields to reflections off the ocean water, the sun can hit you from any direction. Protect your eyes with a pair of polarized sunglasses with 100% UV protection.
Spending a long day outside will require you to use sunscreen. Protect your skin from showing signs of premature aging by using sunscreen. We recommend SPF 15 or higher. Many people overlook sunscreen in the pursuit of tan skin, but using it is important for preventing diseases and health complications.
Outdoor Blanket or Sand Towel:
If you are planning a summer camping trip, you will want a light-weight blanket to keep you warm. This will keep your pack light and provide you with warmth. For a trip to the beach, you will need a towel to lay down and sit on. A towel that you can easily shake the sand off will make cleaning up easy at the end of your beach day.
Keep the sun out of your face with a brimmed hat. A wide-brim sun hat, snapback, or bucket hat will do the trick. Grab your favorite hat and get outside. Wearing a hat will protect your eyes and the sensitive skin on your face.
You will want a pair of comfortable sandals to truly enjoy your summer vacation. Walking around a theme park and walking on the beach can be tiresome, but wearing socks and shoes can make your feet too hot in the Summer. Keep your feet cool and relaxed with a comfortable pair of summer sandals.
All of these items are useless without a good daypack to carry them in. A beach bag is perfect for sandy days and a hiking backpack is great for exploring the great outdoors. A good bag will keep all your items in one place, providing you with peace of mind that you won’t lose anything.
Endure the heat by staying hydrated. Insulated water bottles keep your drink cold for up to 24 hours. This helps you take refreshing sips of water all day long. Staying hydrated is essential for avoiding heat exhaustion on hot summer days.
You will also need to pack appropriate clothing and toiletries. These items vary by activity and travel destination. The weather is heating up and so is our excitement for Summer. You may end up sightseeing in a new city, going hiking to discover new views, or spending time by the ocean or a lake. Prepare for your upcoming trips by rounding up the items you need.
