Vacation tips

  1. Flip-flops or sandals

You don’t plan on traversing the beautiful Grand Isle beaches in your sneakers, do you? Don’t forget to pack your favorite, comfy flip-flops or sandals.

And if you forget, no worries. There’re are plenty of place to get a new pair. You’ll just have to wear them in on your stay. We’re sure you’ll have a blast doing so at Grand Isle.

  1. Device charger

There’s nothing worse than having a prime photo opp but not having enough camera power to take the shot.

Be sure you have the proper charging cords and batteries for your camera and other devices such as smartphones, iPads, laptops, handheld game systems, etc.

  1. Camera memory card

If you bring a camera, chances are you’ll be snapping a lot of photos. If you run out of memory, you don’t want to have to choose which photos to delete.

Bring an appropriate amount of backup in the form of extra memory cards. If you’re bringing your laptop computer, bring the USB cable or appropriate cord to connect the two so you can transfer data to the hard drive, freeing up camera space.

  1. First-aid kit

If you’re embarking on a family adventure with young children, it’s always wise to bring a first-aid kid. A few bandages and some antiseptic can help alleviate the nigh-inevitable scrapes and boo-boos.

  1. Bathing suit or trunks

This might seem like the ultimate no-brainer, but there are people who get to Grand Isle, ready to hit the beach, but they realize they’ve forgotten something very important…

Don’t neglect to pack your bathing suit or swimming trunks.

It’s bound to happen though, so if you do forget, just head to one of the local shops to check out the latest styles.

  1. Sunscreen

Keep sunburns at bay with sunscreen and you’ll have a better time strolling along the beaches or fishing from one of the Grand Isle piers.

  1. Prescription medication
