Not sure what to pack for beach vacations?

Packing for Florida Beach Vacations

Travelers heading to sunny Florida to hit the beach can save money by avoiding buying extra clothes and accessories while traveling. Here's what to pack for your Florida beach vacation.

Classy Cover-ups
Be prepared to transition from beach to mealtime in a hurry. To avoid wrangling the family through a lot of clothing changes and showers, make sure everyone has a nice cover-up to toss on for hitting outdoors restaurants.

Pack sandals or water shoes for everyone in your party. Beach vacations, especially on big resort properties, involve a lot of walking and different terrains. You need lightweight, easy-to-rinse shoes to take you from the beach to your room.

Sun-protective Clothing and Sunscreen
If you're used to a different climate, you may be especially prone to sunburns. Keep you and your family safe with sun-protective clothing. Wear tight-knit, dark fabrics and invest in good hats and sun-protective bathing suits for the kids. Bring various types of sunscreen, including formulas for the face and waterproof formulas for the body.

Breezy Eveningwear
Don't pack anything too fancy. Beach vacations can be chic, but never stuffy. Try a lightweight maxi dress in a bold print. Pack lightweight khaki and light cotton colors for the men in your party.

Beach Toys
If you're driving to your beach vacation, save a little room for beach toys. You'll find better deals at your local stores than you will in tourist stands on the beach.
