Don’t Forget These Items From Your North Myrtle Beach Packing List

Make Traveling With Kids Easier

It doesn’t matter if you’re traveling for fifteen minutes or hours. Driving or flying with bored kids can make the trip seem like an eternity! We advise our guests to plan ahead. Pack a couple of books for the kids, as well as some puzzle books to keep the little ones busy. Whether you’re flying or driving, we suggest including a small travel pillow and blanket as well. For older kids, bring a journal and pens so that they can record their favorite memories of the trip. Of course, be sure to bring any electronics and charging cords in easy reach.

Be Prepared for Fun Under the Sun

The sun under North Myrtle Beach is hot and bright. It’s great when you want to spend a day on the beach, but sunburn can creep up on guests who aren’t used to the climate. Don’t forget to bring big floppy hats, sunglasses, and plenty of sunscreen. Look for phrases like “broad spectrum” on the label, to make sure that they protect against UVA and UVB rays. Apply sunscreen liberally (the average person needs about a shot-glass-size amount to cover their whole body). Don’t forget about the ears and feet — there’s nothing worse than realizing that you’ve forgotten to cover these sensitive areas! Just in case, bring a bottle of pure aloe vera gel as well. Read the ingredients to make sure that you’re getting just aloe vera gel, as opposed to an alcohol-infused mixed.

Have a Backup Plan

Even the gorgeous beaches of The Grand Strand can deal with bad weather! A little rain doesn’t have to mean a ruined vacation, though. Bring some fun board games to play with the whole family! If you’re planning on making sandcastles, we suggest packing some construction paper, popsicle sticks, and glue to make some fun accessories for your towers. Just be sure to take everything back with you after you’ve finished building!
