There are two different theories on packing for a vacation. One is to just go, have a good time, and if you need something, pick it up at a local store.

The second theory is to take everything that will enhance your having a good time. Both plans work.

Below is a list of items you will need.


Bottled water

  Toilet paper, paper towels, tall kitchen garbage bags
  Sheets & pillow cases 1
  Towels (bath, hand, kitchen), washcloths 1
  Soap (bath, washing machine, dishwasher)

The following items might be useful. We’ll leave it up to you how much, or how little, you wish to take.

  Sun block & tanning lotions
  Beach towels
  Life jackets for non-swimmers & kids
  Toys to play in the sand—plastic shovels, pails
  Fishing tackle, crabbing nets
  Mosquito spray (if it’s been raining very much)
  Personal electronics—radio, CD player, WIFI hotspot
  Telescope & binoculars
  Books & magazines you haven't had time to read
  Board games, playing cards, dominos
  BBQ supplies, charcoal, & matches
  Specialty kitchen items—seasonings, blender, coffee filters, turkey pan
