traveling with two boys ...

Posted by   + Show Post
Me my two children and s/o are going to Myrtle beach in may, to the sea mist resort. What do I need to pack? I know the obvious clothes, personal items but, what else do I need? Also how can I save money while we are down there and still have fun and make memories for my boys. They are five and eleven. We are so excited its almost time. :)

Go fishing for your own seafood or catch crabs! Then cook them at your place. We have done that numerous times! So so good

Avoid touristy activities that are expensive or limit them. Do free things like the beach and pool or walking.

Plan out some interesting things to do before going that are free!

Will you have a kitchen, or at least a mini fridge? Eating out can really add up quickly on vacation, so I would do what you can to avoid that. If nothing else, you can bring a cooler with lunch meat, cheese, PB & J, and bread so that sandwiches are an option each day. Bring your own snacks, too, or go grocery shopping once you're there.

some kind of portable electronic to keep them busy in the car etc.

Can you cook in your resort instead of eat out? if they even have a tiny fridge you can bring one of those portable electric burners that are like $20 and cook instead of eat costly resort food. Or at least buy your own sodas and such and keep them in the room.

How fun!  I would say lots of beach toys.
