Plan for rain even if the weather report doesn’t predict it; better safe than sorry, according to an outdoor camping expert friend who sells classroom desks.

If you’re expecting warm weather then choose clothing that is lightweight and allows your skin to breathe and sweat to evaporate.

Do you consider yourself a beach lover? If you love the sand, the water, and the sun, you may be considered a beach lover, on a number of different levels. Individuals who love the beach are more likely to select a beach for their next summer vacation destination. If you are interested in experiencing a vacation on the beach, there are a number of important factors that you should first consider.

When planning a beach vacation, there are many individuals who wish to visit the ‘hottest’ beaches. While it is nice to experience what so many individuals view as popular, there are a number of disadvantages to visiting these popular vacation destinations. One of those disadvantages includes the number of tourists.

In the summer months, a large number of individuals flock to the beaches along the coast. This often results in beach overcrowding. If you do not mind be one of thousands of people at the beach, there shouldn’t be a problem. However, if you are looking for a private or romantic beach getaway, you may want to examine more secluded beach resorts. In addition to romantic getaways, many families find it difficult to vacation at an overcrowded beach, especially if they have young children.

And ladies, don’t forget your sunblock and skin lightening cream 😛
