How to Pack for a Vacation in New Smyrna Beach

Vacation in New Smyrna Beach is a glorious thing. The beaches are pristine, the weather is great and there is so much fun stuff to do; but a New Smyrna Beach vacation is even more enjoyable when you pack the right things.

First off, remember that the dress code in New Smyrna Beach is pretty much relegated to casual, beachy attire and flip flops. So, consider lightening your load by cutting back on the dressy get-ups and clunky shoes.

Also, keep in mind that if you are staying in luxury accommodations like Ebb Tide Condominiums, you will have a washer and dryer at your disposal right in your well-appointed digs! So, you can wash and wear whatever you bring.

Okay, so let’s talk specifics. Most places here are laid back, so khaki shorts, a polo shirt and boat shoes might even be considered dressy and a summer sun dress could certainly pass as the equivalent for evening wear. If you plan a summer vacation in New Smyrna Beach, you tend to be golden with hot weather duds. If you visit from November through March, you may need a light jacket in the evenings. If it rains, it usually doesn’t rain for long, but just in case, it would be excellent if the light jacket you pack has a hood and is water repellent.

Speaking of packing wisely, remember to bring a beach bag. They are flat, so they pack well, or they can even double as a carry-on. Additionally, if you are planning to spend some glorious days basting in the sun with your toes in the sand, don’t forget your bathing suit, sunglasses and a steaming hot romance novel. Travel size toiletries save room and you can always pick up some sunscreen when you arrive. Remember that souvenirs are wearable too, and anything that doesn’t fit can ship!
