10 Must – Take Items For Your Trip To Florida

Florida is a yearly destination that provides something for everyone. The Sunshine State is a wonderful haven for sun-seekers and ardent nature aficionados. What you’ll require to pack would greatly depend on the time of year you’re heading there and the type of activities you’re planning to undertake. The Sunshine State is normally warm and sunny, so it’s easy to pack. In this guide, we’ll discuss 10 items that you must pack to make your trip to the sunshine land amazing and memorable

1. Casual Outfits

When in the Sunshine State, casual dressing is extremely essential. So carry your tank tops, shorts, t-shirts, and summer dresses. If it’s during summer and you’re planning to stay outdoors for quite some time, then pack breathable fabrics such as linen and cotton instead of rayon or polyester. Pack something fairly dressier if you’re planning to go out for dinner. A lovely dress or button-down shirt would be more than enough.

2. Suitable Footwear

If you’re anticipating visiting touristy destinations such as Disney World, you’ll perhaps be walking for a long duration. Carry tennis shoes and heavy socks to avoid blisters. If you’ll hit the beach, rubber flip-flops will come in handy.

3. Swimming Essentials

Florida is hot during summer. Chances are that there will be a pool in your hotel. What’s more, the Sunshine State is a peninsula that is endowed with beaches. So it’s important to bring all your swimming gear, especially if you’re expecting to spend some time in the water. Pack at least two swimsuits, a pair of sandals, and a beach towel.

4. A Light Sweater or Coat

Although this item may seem unnecessary during summer in Florida, it is wise to bring one as you may require it in your flight travels. What’s more, almost all premises in the Sunshine State are air-conditioned indoors, so a light jacket will keep you comfortable in such places. But during winter, a warm sweater or jacket, long pants, and scarves are a must-have.

5. An Umbrella or Light Raincoat

Based on where you’re visiting in the land of sunshine, there are high chances that you’ll come across at least one heavy shower. Most cities there receive from 90 to 140 days of downpour every year. Carry an umbrella or light raincoat to ensure rain won’t dull your plans for the day.

6. Toiletries and Bathroom Essentials

You’ll most likely need similar toiletries irrespective of the season you’re planning to visit Florida. Put liquids in 100 ml bottles and pack them in a 1-quart bag. Alternatively, you can buy travel-sized containers of toiletries in the beauty store. The items you carry will be influenced by your personal needs. Here is a list of essential toiletries and bathroom items.

  • Shampoo
  • Shaving cream
  • Razor
  • Aftershave
  • Moisturizer
  • Toothbrush
  • Toothpaste
  • Makeup
  • Soap
  • Prescription medications
  • Pads and/or tampons
  • Sunscreen

7. Enough Undergarments

Bring sufficient undergarments to cover the number of days you’ll be in Florida plus at least two extra pairs for emergencies. Pack regular bras and sports bras if you’re planning on being active. Also, carry enough undershirts or camisole, if you’re a fan of those.

8. Electronics and Chargers

If you’re packing your laptop, tablet, or cellphone, remember to carry all the complementary chargers. If you don’t have enough space, consider a charger that’s compatible with multiple devices. If you’re bringing your loved ones along, transfer as many movies and games as possible to your electronics for entertainment. There are plenty of affordable vacation rentals in Florida that are perfect for families. So traveling with your family to the Sunshine State won’t be a hassle.

9. Insect Repellant and a Small First Aid Kit

Florida has a high infestation of bugs like mosquitoes, gnats, and love bugs that can bite you, leave you with wounds, and make your holiday unexciting. Be sure to bring insect repellent spray to keep these bugs away and a first-aid kit with lotions for fast relief from stings, especially if you’re a fan of hiking or kayaking.

10. Day Bag

A lightweight, portable, and reliable day bag is a must-pack. You’ll use this bag to carry all the items you need for the day. If possible carry a waterproof bag to protect your belongings because rain is common in Florida even during summers.

The above 10 items are a must-take for your upcoming trip to Florida. Buy a strong, lightweight, and portable luggage to carry these items. Don’t panic if you forget to carry an essential item. There are plenty of shops in Florida where you can buy it.
