Summer Getaway Checklist
It’s Time To Take Off On An End of Summer Getaway.
The countdown to the end of summer has begun. You’ve still got time to squeeze in one final trip before school starts. Town & Country Village has everything you need for your getaway to cap off the lazy hazy days of the summer season.
Get Packing With Travel Size Toiletries & Makeup
There isn’t much time left so start packing! Get your travel-sized toiletries at Ulta Beauty where you’ll find small bottles of your favorite shampoos and hair styling products from Livingproof and Purology.
While you’re there, check out the mini versions of cosmetics and beauty products. Look for lipstick, mascara, concealer, face cream and body lotions. There’s no better time to try something bold and new than while you’re on vacation!
You can experiment with the Urban Decay Naked3 Mini Eyeshadow Palette with different shades. Be sure to pick out a Mini MAC Lipstick in a fun color like Lady Danger. Toss a bunch of different mini options into your cart and enjoy creating a fresh new vacay-look.
Head to Bath & Body Works to pick out a wonderfully scented travel-sized trio of body cream, shower gel, and fine fragrance mist. The smaller more convenient size means you can bring your favorite scents with you wherever you go.
Traveling these days also means taking hand sanitizer along wherever you go. Bath & Body Work’s PocketBack hand sanitizers can fit in a purse or pocket and come in tons of amazing fragrances. Slip it into a hand sanitizer holder and attach it to the cooler so you’ll be sure everyone is using clean hands to dig into the snacks.
Summer Traveling with Kids
Planning a road trip with kids? Then stocking up on the snacks is a must. Schedule a trip to Randall’s for snacks and drinks to fill your cooler. If you don’t have a cooler, Randall’s can help you with that too!
Load up on granola bars, pretzels, chips, candy, and whatever else your family likes. Just don’t skimp on the nibbles. At some point on the car ride, everyone will get the munchies so there better be enough treats to go around! There’s nothing like indulging in potato chips and candy while the miles fall away behind you. Isn’t that part of the fun?
Though snacks are important, they’re not going to entertain the kids the entire time. Be sure to pack some activities for them as well. Kids may love screen time, but give the screens a break by bringing out a bag of surprises from The Learning Express.
Choose from fidget toys, books, workbooks, games and more that everyone can enjoy during the car (or plane) ride. There’s always going to be down time on a trip whether you’re resting in the hotel or in between activities. A collection of fun new gifts is the perfect way to distract bored kids during those slow periods.
Be Prepared With First Aid
The idea of a road trip can bring on romantic visions of riding with the windows down, hair whipping in the wind, and music blasting from the speakers. Don’t ruin the experience with a queasy stomach – plan to get your Dramamine from Walgreens ahead of time and have it handy. They even make a kid-safe version for kids who tend to get car sick too.
People always say it’s better to be safe than sorry, so if you don’t already have a small First Aid kit in your car, the trip to Walgreens would be a great time to pick one up. Keep it in your vehicle so you’ll always have a way to treat scraped knees and small cuts.
Add Vacation Vibe Summer Fashion Fave’s
Though the summer days are waning, there’s still plenty of sun left to squint your eyes against when you’re out on the open road. It’s probably a good idea to keep a pair of sunglasses in the car. Visit the Sunglasses Hut and choose from loads of styles for a pair of fashionable shades. Become a Sun Perks Reward member and you can enjoy exclusive benefits like 50% discount off a new pair if your shades get damaged within a year.
Whether your destination requires a pair of flip flops or a dress for a nice dinner in town, shop for any last-minute vacation wardrobe needs for the entire family at the Gap. This classic clothing retailer dresses babies, toddlers, preschoolers, kids, teens, and adults. This makes it easy to shop for the whole family in one place. If you’re headed to a beach, pool, or water park destination and need swimwear, you may still find a few options, but hurry because they’re going fast. What you’ll find will likely be on sale though as the season is about to end!
For the women with an eye towards designer swimwear and resort wear, make your way to Everything But Water for your getaway wardrobe any time of year. Choose from all styles of swimwear and sizes, sundresses, cover ups, hats and more.
Hit the Road!
Now that you’re all packed up, plan to start your road trip right. Don’t forget to install an ergonomic seat support for the long drive. You can find plenty of great lumbar support options at Relax the Back. Then gas up the car, and fuel the people in them too by dropping by Town & Country Village to pick up yummy sandwiches from Subway or Quiznos for an easy meal on the road. Grab a fun iced drink at Starbucks while you’re there and start your last adventure of the summer with an extra kick. Have fun!
