Stay Safe During Your Getaway

Vacationing during Covid-19 requires packing more than just your bathing suit and a few extra towels. In addition to hand sanitizer and cleaning supplies, here are a few items you’ll want to make sure are packed up and ready to go.

Cooler Backpack

If you’re hitting the beach, headed out on a hike or just exploring while social distancing, you’ll want to take snacks and drinks. Keep everything cold with a cooler backpack. The carrier has enough room to bring items for your whole family, and it makes outdoor eating a breeze.

BUY IT: Amazon, $37

Traveling Slow Cooker

While on vacation, you may try to cook more meals to avoid large crowds. But who wants to spend all their time in the kitchen while on vacation? This travel slow cooker is a great way to make a delicious meal for your family without wasting the day inside.

Family Game Night

Since many of the usual vacation activities are closed or may not feel safe during this time, you’ll need to change up some of your favorite plans. If a family game night is an option, grab this one—Kids Against Maturity. It will have everyone laughing out loud.

Outdoor Fun

Skip the crowds and have some family fun at your vacation rental. This collapsible cornhole game is fun for kids and parents, and everything folds down into a handy carrying case that is easy to pack.

Bag for Your Supplies

Since you will be packing items like hand sanitizer, gloves, masks and disinfectant wipes, having a clear bag to keep everything organized can make your outings a little easier. So, stock up on everything you need, toss it into these bags and then put them into your beach bag, purse or diaper bag.

Large Cooler

To avoid multiple trips to the grocery store, stock up on food before you leave or have groceries delivered to your vacation rental. To make sure those foods stay cold while you travel–or if your fridge is too full–use a heavy-duty cooler like this Coleman, which keeps food cold for up to four days.

BUY IT: Amazon, $167

Extra Masks

It’s easy to misplace your face mask, especially while on vacation. So, have a few extras on hand to make sure everyone has a mask when they need one. These masks from Old Navy come in a five pack and have comfortable ear adjusters.
