Spring Break Travel

by Domenic Muto on 02/18/20

Spring Break Getaway!

Many schools take a week off in March for Spring Break.  Families use this time to take a break from school, homework, and after school activities.  They decompress by taking a vacation to locales such as the beach, a theme park, or even a visit to an out of town relative.  Jamestown Shoe and Luggage Service offers these tips for spring break travel:

•    Before you leave on your getaway, make sure you choose the right destination for your family.  If your family enjoys relaxing and being outdoors then a beach vacation might be best for you.  However, if your family likes to be entertained and on the go then a trip to the theme parks might be in order.
•    After choosing your destination, make sure to pick out the luggage you need.  Will you need large suitcases, duffel bags, backpacks, beach bags, or a combination of these items?  Are you flying? Bring a personal bag and measure your luggage to determine if it fits the guidelines of the airline.  Make sure to check all of your bags and if they are in need of repair, then bring them into our location.
•    Before packing, make a packing list. Make sure to include essentials such as medications, driver’s license/id, boarding passes, tickets, phone, camera, hat, sunglasses, electronics, back up batteries, toiletries, sunblock, a portable hamper, and of course, clothing.
•    Speaking of clothing, double check to see that every family member has the proper footwear.  Do you need water shoes? Hiking shoes? Sneakers? Dressy shoes?  To stick to your budget, consider repairing your current footwear instead of replacing them.  Jamestown Shoe and Luggage Service can help.
•    Then, pack everything.  You can use packing cubes, the fold and roll method, folding, compression bags, or bundling.  Whatever your method, pack all of your items in your luggage and get ready for your trip! 

Jamestown Shoe and Luggage Service offers these tips for preparing for a spring break vacation.
