A Guide to Packing for Spring Break

Wherever you are deciding to travel for spring break, these steps on how to pack will provide you with a foolproof guide to make sure you leave nothing behind. 

When packing for vacation, it’s normal to let the excitement take over. Sometimes you end up rushing because you just can’t wait to get there. Before you let this happen, take a step back and ask yourself, “where am I going,” “what will I be doing,” and “what will the weather be like?” These are key points for packing the perfect attire for spring break.

“Where am I Going”

Before you start just throwing things into your suitcase, keep in mind where you’re going and what items of clothing are imperative to bring to that specific destination. Think about it, if you’re traveling to Mexico, you’re going to want to pack lots of beach wear and sun dresses. But if you’re going to Nashville, it’d be better to pack your cowgirl boots and favorite denim! I recommend that if you are going to a place you have never been before, look up what kind of outfits people wear there so you can get an idea of what the vibe is. There are also many online stores that have a whole “spring break” category with different popular destinations subcategorized with outfits for each!

“What Will I be Doing”

This is another crucial question to ask because spring break can mean something different to everyone. If you are going to a beach destination and expect to do a lot of swimming, then, of course, bathing suits and flip-flops should be at the top of your packing list. If you are planning on spending your week in the woods, however, then hiking gear and sneakers would be more appropriate. Say you are traveling to a place where there is a big nightlife. A few dresses and a pair of heels would be smart to add to your bag. What you are doing on vacation should be a main concern while packing because you don’t want to miss out on an activity because you didn’t bring the proper clothing for it.

“What Will the Weather be like”

Packing for any vacation can be difficult, especially spring break, because this time of year, the weather is hard to predict. Even though Florida, for example, is known for being warm and sunny, the state still experiences some rather chilly days, so it’s critical to make sure you check the weather continuously leading up to your trip. This could also happen if you are planning on traveling somewhere cooler, like Nashville. Sometimes Tennessee encounters warm fronts, and you don’t want to be on vacation and not have brought the right attire for a sunny day. Even if you end up not using your sweatshirt in the south, or your shorts up north, it’s better to be safe than sorry!
