Don’t Forget to Pack These Items for Spring Break in Florida

What to Pack for Spring Break

One of the worst realizations is spending your day traveling, arriving at your destination, and finding out you forgot to pack a toothbrush. There are so many things to think about when traveling anywhere, especially for those who have children in their vacation crew. To help you avoid forgetting necessary items at home, we have listed what to pack for spring break below!

This extensive list still applies to those who prefer a summer getaway. To book your beach trip today, visit our website. We offer a variety of rentals including beachfront vacation condos in Destin to luxury rental homes on 30A.


Long-Sleeve, Lightweight Shirt – If you feel like you are getting too much sun, having a long-sleeve shirt with you is a must. This way you never miss out on the fun, but still protect your skin.

Hat – This is often something that is left at home. Hats provide shade, providing less sun exposure to your face.

Sunglasses – Don’t spend your entire vacation squinting at your kids building sandcastles.

Multiple Bathing Suits – Having multiple when ensure you have a fresh suit for each day.

Beach Cover-Ups – Pack something cool that will keep you covered as you walk from your rental to the pool or beach.

Waterproof Sandals – Dedicate one pair of shoes to use for the beach or pool that can get wet.

Slippers – It is easy to track sand into your vacation rental during your stay. Slippers will keep the sand off of your feet when you are relaxing in your home away from home.

Sun Protection

Sunscreen – Stock up on different types of sunscreens. There are different levels depending on how tolerant you are to the sun. Reapply often!

Skin Care – Sunbathing can dry your skin out. Bring moisturizer or masks.

Aloe Vera – Place it in the fridge when you arrive. It is the best thing to apply to sunburns!

Lip Balm – Extra points if the lip balm has SPF in it!

Beach Necessities

Beach Toys – To keep your children occupied! For those who are flying and can’t find room for beach toys, choose a rental that comes with them.

Beach Bag – Preferably a big one that can filter sand out of it.

Cooler – To keep drinks and snacks cold so you don’t have to make trips back and forth between the beach and your rental.

Plastic Reusable Water Bottles – Glass is not allowed on the beach, but you will need to stay hydrated.
