What to Bring on Vacation in North Myrtle Beach

Ocean Drive Beach Rentals provides their guests with a unique experience that most vacationers don’t have the access to. Most of our vacation rentals have full kitchens, spacious living areas, and some room outside to enjoy our mild climate. Your experience here is much more different than that at chain hotel or resort. You can think of it as you’re moving into your very own second home for a short escape from reality. Linens and bath towels are provided, but you still have to bring some daily necessities.

When packing for your North Myrtle Beach vacation, don’t forget the all too important toiletries. Everyday items from your toothbrush and toothpaste to shaving supplies, soaps, shampoos, and nail clippers are very easy to pack and will save you money by not buying them at grocery stores when you’re in town. Suntan lotion is definitely a necessity during the spring, summer, and fall months. Restrictions may apply if you’re flying to the beach, so don’t forget to check with the airport well ahead of your trip.

Dress accordingly to the time of year you visit North Myrtle Beach. You can pretty much count on shorts, t-shirts, bathing suits, and sandals being the usual from May – October. Through the remainder of the year plan to juggle your attire to include light jackets and pants. Sandals are usually good the entire year. This past winter has been unusually brutal to us beach people, which included a couple days of light snow. It’s always a good idea to pay attention to The Weather Channel in the days leading up to your Grand Strand vacation.

No matter how well you pack for vacation, there is always a great chance you’ll forget something. North Myrtle Beach has lots of grocery stores and beachwear stores. Prices are relatively fair no matter where you choose to shop. The local Walmart tends to be extremely popular with our guests on that first trip to buy groceries, but be prepared for long lines on arrival day.
