Packing for Your Myrtle Beach Vacation: A Checklist

Before we dig into the checklist for your vacation packing, a few words about the way you pack to help you make the most of your luggage space. First, choose luggage that is lightweight and easy to carry–and wheels are a life-saver. The last thing you want to do on your beach vacation is lug around heavy bags. Use organizing cubes and clothing compressor bags to keep everything easy to find and organized. Use folders for dress clothes to keep them wrinkle-free. Use the zippered compartments to hold toiletries, makeup and jewelry. Okay, on to the list!
