Everyone loves beach vacations. That is why Orlando real estate owners should head to South Florida after Hurricane Irma to enjoy a few days on the sand. The economy will certainly need a nice boost after the devastation of a Category 5 hurricane.
Rather than running around an expensive theme park, teenagers from Orlando luxury homes can ride the waves, go for a swim, or simply work on their tans. The inquisitive types can explore for sea life, tide pools, and drift wood. The warm breezes and natural beauty are invigorating and restorative. Any trip, however, can cause discomfort if you do not plan well. Whether it is in Miami-Dade, Broward, or Palm Beach County, there are simple tricks to making your holiday to a South Florida beach nice and safe for everyone in the family.
In many parts of the world, people head for their beach holidays in the car, also known as the “family trickster.” When planning a trip, it’s always a good idea to give the car a good cleaning out first. This will give you more room for your luggage. Stock your glove box with a few first aid and comfort items, such as sunblock, aspirin for headaches, a roll of antacids, some cough drops, and a few bandaids. Girls shouldn’t forget a couple of scrunchies for long hair. Get the tires checked and replace any that are likely to go flat. Take care of an oil change if it’s getting close. Road trips are not much fun when they include breakdowns. And whatever you do, make sure all the roads and highways are safe without too much debris after a nasty hurricane.
Travelling with kids is always a challenge. They may be particularly excited and impatient when they know they are going on beach holidays. Make sure they have cool water bottles and healthy snacks to munch. Rather than popping a tablet in front of them, try to play a simple card game to make the time pass. Many kids like looking for letters of the alphabet on signs. If several people get involved it can be quite fun.
With beach vacations, there is always a need to provide for skin safety. Use a sunblock with a high SPF rating and replace it after getting wet or drying off with your towel. The towel you choose can make a difference too. Thick towels get heavy and tend to trap a lot of sand. You may find you like thin towels at the beach. Wear sunglasses to protect your eyes and some sort of foot protection to keep your feet from being burned on the hot sand.
Just plan ahead and everything can be worry-free. When you get back to your home for sale in Orlando, you will be relaxed, refreshed, and ready for work. Take a minute to unpack and get your laundry going. Before you know it, the kids will be dying to get back to the beach and help the post-hurricane South Florida economy.
