Travel Necessities with HomeAway…

Happy Thursday!! Today I have teamed up with HomeAway to share my Weekend Getaway travel essentials!  Spring Break is just around the corner, so now is the perfect time to start thinking about what to bring with you.  My essentials are focused on a beach vacation, because my dream vacation spot is in a tiki hut on Bora Bora.  Everything about this place screams fun and relaxation!  I would love to stay in one of those private huts in the middle of the ocean… sigh... maybe some day! ๐Ÿ™‚

I have been going to Florida pretty much my whole life for Spring Break, as it’s close enough to get away but still get the tropical feel as you would in Mexico, etc.  I found it interesting that one of HomeAway’s most popular area for vacationing is in the Florida Panhandle.  I usually venture a little more south to the Fort Myers area (mainly because my parents live there in the winter) but I am dying to visit Pensacola Beach! If you don’t know where Pensacola is, it is right by Gulf Shores, Alabama (another place I’d like to visit eventually!) and is located right at the top of the panhandle.  It is 22 miles of sandy beach right along the Gulf of Mexico.  You can find so many awesome deals on beach-front rooms starting at right around $100/night!  Visit HomeAway to start planning and take a look at my top 5 essentials to get you ready for a beach getaway!
Happy Planning!! xoxo
