Packing for Your Myrtle Beach Vacation
When packing for your Myrtle Beach vacation, you’ll want to pay special attention to what you pack. Remember that you’re coming to a beach town in the middle of the hot and humid summer. Temperatures range from the mid-80s to the high 90s plus humidity. Some items you’ll pack and some you’ll want to pick up once you get here as they’ll be too cumbersome to travel with. Let’s get going with the handy list you need to pack for your Myrtle Beach vacation!
To Bring with You:
You’ll want to bring the basics with you, so you have a good base of items when you arrive.
- Short sleeve shirts
- Tank tops
- Flip flops
- Two swimsuits (so you always have a dry one)
- Cool/lightweight pajamas
- Essentials like underwear and toiletries
- Cell phone charger
To Pick Up When You Arrive:
Especially if you’re flying, you’ll want to pick up these items after you arrive. If you’re staying in a vacation rental, its possible the previous guest might leave some of these items behind for you so check out your vacation rental before you head to the store.
- Insect repellent
- Lip balm with sunscreen
- Squirt bottle with vinegar and tweezers (in case of jellyfish stings)
- Beach towels
- Beach umbrella
- Beach chairs
- Cooler with frozen water and snacks
Packing for your Myrtle Beach vacation takes a little bit of planning but it’s worth the effort to know what you’ll be bringing with you and what you’ll pick up after you arrive. If you’re driving in to see us, you might be able to cross a few things off your list ahead of time and bring them with you. If you’re flying, there are some items that are just too cumbersome to fly with. Plus, it might be tough to find beach chairs and beach umbrellas in Ohio or wherever you’re visiting from. While you’ll have two lists, if you keep everything organized, it will still go pretty smoothly for you. Welcome to Myrtle Beach!
