|Virginia Beach VA - Packing Checklist|
Feel free to print this list so you’ll be “ready to go” when it’s time to pack for your Virginia Beach VA Vacation! And remember, even if you forget something, you can always purchase whatever you need here in town. No worries!
Check in with your airline regarding what you can carry on the plane as new rules and regulations have been implemented. Also, check the weather forecast for your destination, and local customs for clothing guidelines. The Golden Rules: Don't pack too much. Traveling light is always best… especially when coming to a beach town. Take it from a local, you’ll mainly be wearing sunglasses, t-shirt, shorts and flip flops most of the time!

BeltsShoes / Sandals / Flips Flops
NOTE: We don't recommend that you pack ALOT of expensive jewelry for your trip, especially if you plan to spend most of your time on the beach. A few nice casual pieces to wear day and night should be fine. Besides, there are lots of great shops to explore, so you'll want to wait and buy your beach jewelry here!

Some additional packing tips:
To reduce wrinkling, turn jackets inside out and fold them in half with tissue paper or dry-cleaning bags. Also, layering plastic bags or tissue between clothes, also helps to prevent wrinkles. Pack heavy items, such as shoes and toiletry kits, before the more delicate ones. Place them along the suitcase's spine to balance weight at the bottom.
Hang clothing in the bathroom while showering to steam out wrinkles. Line the bottom of your suitcase with your trousers and let the legs hang over the outside edge of the suitcase. Then pack the rest of your travel gear with the lighter materials on top. Wrap trouser legs over the pile; they'll keep their crease.
Stuff socks and rolled-up belts into shoes to save space.
Take along plastic bags for laundry or wet swimsuits.
Bring an empty, soft bag for souvenirs.
