How to Pack for the Best Florida Vacation

Congratulations, you’ve booked your Florida vacation! It’s almost time for fun in the sun, sand between your toes, and (best of all) non-stop stress-free relaxation.


There are so many things to do around Ormond Beach, Florida. Aside from spending time on the beach, make plans to adventure around the Hidden Treasures of Ormond, and experience day trips to St. Augustine, Kennedy Space Center, or even Disney World. Keep these trips in mind while strategically planning out which cute and comfortable outfits to put in your suitcase.


Your vacation is just days away? Let’s get packing!


Not sure which items you may need for your resort vacation? Check out the official Spinnaker Packing Checklist to ensure you feel at home during your vacation! Learn some of our favorite Packing Hacks before even thinking about packing up that suitcase! Worried that you might have missed something? We have also created a master list of 5 Essential Items you are most likely to forget!


Pack exactly what you need without breaking your suitcase or your back!


My best possible advice is to plan ahead of time (it speeds up the process). For style guides and more packing ideas, Follow Spinnaker Resorts on Pinterest! Along with your outfit ideas, check out our Beach Bag Checklist, especially for this Florida beach vacation! Before watching the video on how to pack, set out what you’re going to pack. Try to restrict your clothes to the 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 rule:

• 5 Tops
• 4 Bottoms
• 3 Dresses
• 3 Pair of Shoes
• 2 Bathing suits
• 2 Cover-Ups
• 1 Hat
• 1 Pair of Sunglasses


Now that you have all the items you wish to pack, lay them all out to make sure you absolutely need each piece. We don’t want to over pack and potentially break our bag! Let’s start by picking one outfit to set aside for your day of travel. Whether you are flying or driving, this should be one of your bulkier outfits (saving room in that small suitcase).


View the video below to see how our packing expert (that’s me!) packs an entire week’s stuff into one official carry on size (9 inches deep x 14 inches wide x 22 inches high) suitcase!

Side note: Remember to leave some room in that suitcase for one-of-a-kind Ormond Beach Souvenirs!
