The library is a great place to check out a good book to read over break.

Swimsuits: Whether you enjoy swimming in pools or braving the ocean waters, swimsuits are a must-have on almost every warm weather vacation. Nothing beats the feeling of jumping into the pool or the ocean on a sweltering hot day!

Sunscreen: Not everybody enjoys applying sunscreen, but it is a necessity when you are planning to be in the warm sun. The good news is that you have a myriad of options including different scents for both lotions and sprays. 

Sunglasses: This item is great for looking cool on your vacay, and your shades can be both practical and fashionable. Particularly useful for preventing those headaches on eye-squinting and bright sunny days!

Fun Footwear: Ditch those clunky snow boots and reach for your flips flops and sandals! Flips flops are perfect for sandy beaches and come in a variety of colors and patterns. Going out to dinner? Your sleek sandals will complete your dining attire.

Good Book to Read: Whether it’s a brand-new novel or a favorite book that you are eager to re-read, this is a key item for a relaxing vacation. So grab a good book and choose a fun spot to settle in and read! 

Playlist: We all know how exhausting travel days are, so having a playlist with some fun tunes is essential on vacation. And don’t forget a pair of headphones or earbuds for quiet listening! 

Water Bottle: Staying hydrated is one of the most important things to remember while on warm-weather vacations. So pick your water bottle of choice and be sure to refill throughout the day!

Backpack or Beach Bag: With all of the key items you bring on vacation, you need an effective way to carry them. A sturdy backpack is a practical way to transport your essentials, while beach bags are another great option for carrying your beach or poolside belongings. 

Entertaining Games: We all know that rain can spoil what’s supposed to be a warm and sunny vacation. But fun card games or portable board games are the perfect indoor activities for suboptimal weather!

Postcards & Stamps: Remember to pick up a few postcards at your travel destination or even at the airport. It’s always fun to send a note to people who you wish were there with you. And don’t forget the stamps!

Hi! My name is Caitlin, and I am a freshman this year. This is my second semester being a staff writer, and I am excited to write articles on different topics in a variety of sections of the newspaper. One of my favorite parts about Spectrum is meeting new students and teachers through interviews for my articles. When I am not writing, I am often figure skating, playing tennis, or training our four dogs!
