A planned beach trip is something to get stoked about.
Especially if you didn’t get to Myrtle Beach last summer, you’re ready to go. There are a few essentials you should remember as you plan your getaway. Doing so will save you some time and money.
We look forward to seeing you soon on the Grand Strand.
Although a spontaneous trip can be a blast, you can still have fun in the sun with a game plan in place. Determine your budget, length of stay, and the type of accommodations that work best for you first. You can still schedule free time to roam and discover.
Nothing ruins a fun trip faster than a sunburn on Day 1 to keep you inside the rest of the vacation. It’s no secret how important it is to protect your skin from the sun, so buy a bunch before you go. Supply and demand on the coast for it might drive prices up a bit.
A routine check of fluids and tires is essential, but also keep in mind the inside of the car. Seat covers can protect your car from sand and water, and you can take them off if they get dirty. A backseat organizer keeps books, snacks, sunglasses, sunscreen, and more, easy to manage.
Who wants to scramble looking for that Bluetooth speaker or umbrella when you get to the beach? Or having to come back to the car or resort to fetch them? Put your beach blankets, towels, toys, and safety devices in a beach bag before you go.
Better to bring with you than to stop and buy things you’ll need, depending on your agenda. Pack quarters for parking meters, bug repellant, a good beach read, floaties, and more.
Even a rainy day in Myrtle Beach is a great day, but not when it’s a surprise. If there is rain in the forecast, pack whatever you need when you’re at home — raincoats, umbrellas. Even summer nights can get chilly, so bring a hoodie for everyone.
Sometimes, essential things get lost or broken. Phone chargers stop working. Swimsuits blow off the balcony while you’re drying them. Pack an extra of a few of these types of things.
When you’re out, especially in the sun, pack an insulated cooler with water bottles. Grab one of those 24-pack waters to keep in the trunk, and stash as many as you can in the resort refrigerator. Juice boxes and soda are good, but caffeinated pop can dehydrate you.
Are you headed to the Grand Strand for excitement or relaxation? Is it a solo trip, you and your significant other, friends, or the whole family? Know where the spots are that fit your agenda, for entertainment, dining, shopping, and more.
A box of self-sealing bags is perfect for leftovers, seashells, jewelry, snacks, and more. A pack of baby wipes, even if you have no babies, works for quick refreshes and other needs. And a container of disinfectant wipes comes to the rescue for sanitary reasons.
