If you haven’t already booked your next vacation to Myrtle Beach, we’re sure that you’re daydreaming about it all day! With the amazing properties available from Beach Vacations, reserving is as easy as a few clicks of a mouse or a couple of taps on your smartphone. But once you’ve booked and made it all the way to your day of departure, there’s one step that can help ensure that your vacation goes off without a hitch: packing! After all, no one wants to be that person who gets to Myrtle Beach and realizes they haven’t packed their swimsuit. Here are a few great tips for packing success prior to your next vacation to Myrtle Beach.
Make a List, and Check It Twice
It might sound obvious, but like the example above, sometimes it can be easy to forget the most obvious item like a cell phone charger. A few days out from your departure, take a couple of minutes to jot down everything you’ll need for your Myrtle Beach vacation. Trust us, no one wants to have to plop down cash for something that they left on their counter or in their closet at home, so lists are your best friend!
A Little Laundry Goes a Long Way
One of the best things about the properties of Beach Vacations is that the majority offer washers and dryers so, unless you absolutely want to, you don’t have to pack up your entire wardrobe. This can come especially in handy when you’re flying to Myrtle Beach and might have to be wary of luggage weight limits. If you have a week-long vacation planned, you can easily cut your packed clothes in half by utilizing the laundry facilities available in many of our properties.
Suck It Up!
So, you just can’t cut down your vacation clothes. That’s OK! As long as you have a vacuum cleaner and time for a quick trip to Wal-Mart or Target, pick up some vacuum seal bags from the laundry area to quickly and easily reduce space needed in your suitcase. This might not help if you’re traveling by air, but if you’re part of a large family driving in, you know that space in a car can be at a premium on a long trip!
Make Room for Souvenirs
Many travel experts caution against overpacking, mainly citing that we’re simply geared towards packing more stuff than we need or will use. Besides having a lighter load to carry, there’s another benefit to leaving some room in your suitcase: when you find that perfect souvenir (or twelve), you’ll have plenty of space to pack it away and get it home safely!
Now that you’ve got the lowdown on some awesome packing tips, if you haven’t booked your Myrtle Beach trip yet, there’s no better time than right now!
