Summer Getaway Guide

Summer Travel Guide

If you don’t have at least one weekend getaway, road trip, or flight to a foreign destination scheduled this summer then you should probably start planning! But if you do, then your next step is to find the best travel necessities to accompany you. Packing up the perfect piece of luggage and dressing for the mileage can make everything from navigating a packed airport to sitting in a car for hours a little more enjoyable. After all, summer getaways are all about relaxing, so why not make your travel experience just as pleasant. Lucky for you, we’ve compiled a list of tips to help you get vacation ready!

Pack like a Pro
Summer trips are supposed to be stress-free, unfortunately packing tends to be anything but that. Here are some key features to look for when searching for new luggage to ease the packing process.

  • Size – Many factors come into play when choosing the size of your baggage (length of stay, vacation activities, & travel preferences).  If you despise the hassle of checking luggage or have a shorter stay, go for a carry-on sized item. This could be a small wheeled suitcase, a tote, or a weekender bag.  However, if you plan to return with souvenirs or vacation for a longer period of time, a larger suitcase may be a better fit to ease your travel experience.
  • Durability – From the airport to the trunk of your car, your luggage will most likely take a beating. You will want to look for something made of sturdy material with your must-have key features so it can last for numerous getaways.
  • Organization – The key to a great trip is being organized. Whether you’re picking out your travel tote or selecting a set of luggage, don’t overlook the little details. We suggest looking for a mix of pockets to keep your valuables safe and all of your like items together in your suitcase.
  • Personality – These days, luggage is offered in bright colors and playful prints. Why not pick something fun that suits you and makes it easy to locate on the luggage carousel? If you like to keep it simple with a black suitcase, make sure you add a unique bag tag so others don’t roll off with your belongings.

Keep it Light
Summer vacations are all about taking the weight off your shoulders. What better way to do so than wearing breathable, lightweight clothing. From chasing the kiddos around the airport to hiking in the hot summer sun, you’ll be sure to break a sweat. We highly recommend layers for a comfortable transition from an air conditioned airport or car to the hot temperatures of your travel destination. Be sure to pack yourself some of our super comfy must-haves!

Navigate in Comfort
Your feet need a vacation too! From running around the airport terminal or train station to exploring your travel destination, you will want to be sure to have a comfortable pair of shoes that easily slide on and off. Of course, we don’t expect you to sacrifice style for comfort either. Slip into a pair of these shoes before jetting off on your summer adventure!

  • Hiking boots – In the case of trail-trudging, supply your kids with a pair of sturdy yet stylish hiking boots. Most summer camps are structured so kids can enjoy a little off-road fun, so make sure they are ready for the trek.

  • Lightweight jackets – With most summer days starting in the 50s and escalating to the 90s with a constant chance of rain, make sure your kids are prepped with a lightweight layer to protect them no matter what the weather.
