Things to Bring - Texas Beach Vacations

Things to Bring

There are two different theories on packing for a vacation. One is to just go, have a good time, and if you need something, pick it up at a local store. The second theory is to take everything that will enhance your having a good time. Both plans work. Below is a list of items you will need.

  • Bottled water
  • Toilet paper, paper towels, tall kitchen garbage bags
  • Sheets and pillow cases. (If you wish, we can provide sheets, pillow cases, towels and wash cloths. The charge for this is shown on the individual beach house pages).
  • Blankets
  • Towels (bath, hand, kitchen), washcloths. (As mentioned above, we can provide these, too. Check the linens charge on the individual beach house pages.)
  • Soap (bath, washing machine, dishwasher)

The following items might be useful. We’ll leave it up to you how much, or how little, you wish to take.

  • Sunblock and tanning lotions
  • Beach towels
  • Life jackets for non-swimmers and kids
  • Toys to play in the sand, plastic shovels, pails, etc.
  • Fishing tackle, crabbing nets
  • Mosquito spray, if it’s been raining very much
  • Personal electronics: Radio, CD player, WiFi Hotspot
  • Telescopes and binoculars
  • Books and magazines you haven’t had time to read!
