Mini-Series: Rivers' Tips

Wednesday, June 10, 2015

It truly is exciting to share with all of you about our one-year anniversary trip! #riversoneyear 
I will tell you that I’ll share some tips for beach packing, some awesome restaurants to try, two hotels you could stay at for inexpensive, and a new sunburn recipe that ACTUALLY works!

On May 25th, 2014 Jake and I were married.  2:12pm to be exact! Last year we decided that because we absolutely LOVE the beach, why not go to Wrightsville Beach, NC for our honeymoon.  It is only 2 ½ hours away from our house, so it worked perfectly! I have learned very important when dealing when packing for beach...and that is to pack light. The last two beach trips I have somewhat over packed and it honestly causes more problems than anything.  That is because we don’t have a lot of room for when we purchase things on the vacation, it tends to make everything cluttered.

This is what I recommend while packing for a 5-day beach trip!

A few more things to add to that list:

-> Bring your own beach chairs and umbrellas; this will save you an additional cost from having to rent it from your hotel!

-> Bring CASH. Most places at the beach accept debit card, but a lot of other places don’t. It is always good to have cash on you at all times. You could even use it as tipping money so you don’t have that on your debit/credit card as well.

-> Bring Bottled Water. While you will love swimming in ocean water, the drinking water there isn’t so great. Bottle water is the way to go, and also you don’t have to buy any while you’re there for the beach, saving you some cash!

-> Most think it is odd to bring more than one bathing suit. Trust me, if you burn in an area one day, you might want to switch to another bathing suit so you don’t burn again!

I hope these tips help you on your next beach vacation!
