The Unforgettables: What you need to pack for a trip to Florida
Packing for a trip to Florida is generally not hard. Most travelers are planning on a vacation to the beach. But beyond your swimmers and your towel, there are a number of things you should pack that many travelers forget. So we have put together a list of the unforgettables for you.
The following are things you need to pack for your next trip to Florida.
Drivers License Orlando
When traveling to Orlando, your driver’s license is something you want to remember to bring. Normally this will be your primary form of ID, however international travelers will often leave this at home in place of their passport.
Car rental is, however, the most viable option for transport throughout Orlando, and those wanting to take day trips or visit a few of the city’s different theme parks should genuinely consider booking a car. There are plenty of tour companies in Orlando, though having access to a car enables you to travel at your own pace.
Fishing Gear for Dania
One of the biggest draws to Dania is the Dania Beach Pier, and a favorite local pastime is boatless fishing.
This is one of the city’s most popular landmarks, so even if you do forget your fishing gear, it is a great place to people watch and soak up the coastal atmosphere. Though one of the funnest things to do is challenge the locals to see who can snag the best catch.
Ziplock Bags for Marco Island
Marco Island is famous for its white sand beaches, though what most people forget to pack are ziplock bags for their day at the beach. Having these with you is a genius way to make sure your camera, cell phone, and other electronics stay totally sand-free.
Also, if you’re heading home the next day you don’t want to have to throw sandy, damp clothes in with the rest of your gear. Ziplock bags are a great way to separate your wet clothes and save the rest of your bag from reeking with a damp smell.
However if you’re going to do this, make sure that everything you take with you is taken away from the beach. Non-biodegradable products can cause a negative impact the environment if left as litter along the coast.
Something Dressy for Boca Raton
Boca Raton is a beach destination, though it is also a posh coastal town. So while many pack informal beach gear for the day, make sure you also have something dressy to head out in each night.
Women usually wear short dresses. Men are fine wearing a polo shirt with linen pants.
Snorkel Equipment for Islamorada
Islamorada is part of the Florida Keys, and has some of the best snorkeling in the world. This is a tourist hub, however, so equipment rental for popular water sports is expensive. It is much more afford to travel with your own snorkel gear, so don’t forget to pack this before you go.
Not only does this mean your excursions will be cheaper, but also more hygienic. This way you know that you’re the only one who has used that gear.
