Vacations should be stress free. Here’s a list to get you organized before you hit the beach so you can spend more time enjoying your destination than in the airport.
Make your luggage stick out. Tying a bright ribbon to your handles or making an “X” with duct tape will make it easier to spot your bags at the baggage claim. Place your name and contact information inside and out of the suitcase.
Be prepared. Pack your carry-on with essentials and a few clothing items. This is especially important if you have connecting flights, in case your luggage doesn’t arrive with you.
Plan an itinerary. Search online or call your hotel before you leave. Plan different activities that appeal to individual interests, and one activity a day that the whole family will enjoy.
Cross-check, and check again. When preparing to return home, cross-checking with your family is a good way to avoid leaving things behind. On your way out, do one final sweep of the room, including the bathroom and under the bed.
Pack a Laundry Bag. It can be a different suit case or just a plastic bag to re-pack your dirty clothes. It beats giving your clothes the “smell test” when you get home.
A great vacation plan finds a family-friendly destination with activities and attractions that you and your kids will enjoy. The Grand Strand has that to offer you.
