The Pack List for YOUR Wildwoods Beach Trip

Published on

There’s nothing quite like a week at the beach, especially if it means you can unplug from work and focus on relaxation and quality time with friends or family. Here at the Ivanhoe Motel, we’re just steps away from the wide, welcoming beaches of North Wildwood and enjoy welcoming beachgoers all summer. From families to couples, the sun-seekers and shell-searchers flock to our charming oceanfront town.

No matter how many times you’ve loaded up your car for a beach trip (or any vacation, for that matter), doesn’t it seem that you always end up forgetting something you need? Sure, usually it’s something replaceable at the nearest drug store, but wouldn’t it be nice to skip the stop at the store and get straight to that chair in the sand? We’ve come up with some packing lists that might come in handy for your next trip!

For parents:

  • Umbrellas
  • Beach chairs
  • Cooler with wheels
  • Camera
  • Big beach bag

For kids

  • Hats and protective sun gear
  • Kid-friendly sunscreen with a higher SPF 
  • Life jackets
  • Sandcastle molds & other toys
  • Grab and go snacks

For couples:

  • Inflatable rafts
  • Dressier clothes for a nice date night out

For adventurers:

For everyone:

  • Sunscreen
