It’s about that time of year when we ramp up our traveling to escape the frigid cold of Wisconsin winters. Yesterday morning the family went outside to play and the temperature was a whopping 7 degrees. I am ready to trade in our parkas and snow boots for swimsuits and sunglasses.
Now that the kids are a little older, we have been trying to make an effort to travel more. It’s exciting to pack for a place you’ve either never been, or one that is a completely different climate than you live in. For us, leaving the Wisconsin winters for a week or two, allows a much needed break and dose of Vitamin D.
Below are some of the must have packing items for a beach trip, and the list I typically go by. Be sure to follow me on LTK where you can shop all my past vacation essentials, as well as all that I’m bringing with me on this trip!
