What to Pack for Your Family Vacation in Pennsylvania

What to Pack for Your Family Vacation in Pennsylvania

When traveling with kids to Pennsylvania, there are several things you'll need. Consider what time of year you're going and what activities you'll be taking part in, and build a list.

  • Money and credit cards

    Both cash and credit cards come in handy on any vacation – especially as some attractions and restaurant will only take one or the other.

  • Clothes

    As summers in Pennsylvania are hot and humid, visitors in this season will want to pack light clothes such as shorts, T-shirts, skirts, and summer dresses. For evening dinners, consider bringing smart casual wear such as button-up shirts and khakis. Winters can get very cold, meaning heavy coats, water-resistant boots, scarf, gloves, and a hat are a must.

  • Gadgets and accessories

    Even on vacation, you'll want to keep in contact with each other and with your friends back home. A camera, smartphone, laptop, portable charger, earphones, flashlight, and alarm clock are all useful.

  • A pair of binoculars

    If you're heading outdoors in Pennsylvania, a pair of binoculars is always useful for spotting the fascinating local wildlife.
