Summer may be months away, but it’s never too early to start daydreaming about a beach vacation. When prepping for a season full of beach trips, whether for days or weeks, here’s a quick list of what to pack for your getaway.
As the most obvious inclusion on this list, don’t forget to either wear your swimsuit under or as part of your clothes, or pack it separately. Bring a separate plastic bag for your wet suit after a day of swimming.
Another no-brainer is the first line of defense against the sun. Bring a sunscreen with a high SPF factor and remember to apply and reapply often.
Some may see stuffing a hat into a backpack as a nuisance and waste of space, but once you’re on the beach and roasting in the sun, having to continually block out the rays from your eyes using your hands, you’ll be happy to slap on a hat with brims to do this for you.
Snacks and Drinks
Forgo the pricey beachside snack shacks and bring your own food instead. Pack a cooler with fruit, water and sandwiches that need to be kept cool, and pack a separate bag for dry snacks, like nuts, chips and crackers.
Something to Do
Load up your phone with podcasts, music or e-books for a relaxing day of listening in the sun, or pack a few books or magazines to pass the time.
Waterproof Bluetooth Speaker
Turn up your beach party with a waterproof speaker, and make sure your Spotify playlists are loaded with your favorite tunes.
In case all your electronics mentioned above lose battery life, plug them into your portable battery pack for a day full of charge.

Spring in Philadelphia is a beautiful time. The flowers are blooming, there are people out enjoying nature and Philadelphia’s festival season begins.

Once business concludes, a world of wonder awaits in many of Italy’s incredible cities.
