What Not to Forget on Your Beach Vacation

It never fails. You have made list after list and planned for weeks, but there’s always one or two things that you’ll forget for your beach vacation. We compiled a list to remind you of these things! Of course, everyone has different needs, but hopefully we’ve covered most bases.

1. Bathing suits and cover ups. Besides swimming in the ocean, some of our homes have pools! I always bring at least two, because one made need to dry.
2. A cute tote bag for the beach. What a great excuse to shop!

3. Large terry towels. The bigger, the better!
4. Binoculars. We have the most types of birds of anywhere in Texas, and dolphins. There’s nothing more relaxing than watching both from the deck.
5. Plastic bags or some other vessel for collecting shells and treasures.
6. A couple of good books. Unplug from work and the computer and lose yourself in a good novel.
7. Your tunes and a speaker for the beach.
8. Kid’s Toys. Especially sand castle building tools.
9. All the groceries. We are 20 minutes from the closest grocery store and city. Plan out and stock up so you have fewer trips driving into town.
10. Favorite hygiene products like soaps and shampoo.
11. Band-aids.
12. Favorite snacks for the beach.
13. Sunscreen, after sun cream and sunglasses.
14. A hat.
15. Water float toys.
16. A surfboard or boogie board for surf fun.
17. A canopy, umbrellas, or a pop up tent for shade.

18. A light jacket for cool nights.
19. Mosquito spray or cream.
20. Phone and computer chargers.
21. Favorite adult beverages. Remember, you can have any alcohol on our beaches, but NO glass!

22. Some cash.
23. Medications needed.
24. Remember, once you drive over our bridge, the stresses go away…

Winter in Surfside TX

I think we all love the holidays. There’s nothing about it that isn’t fun and exciting. But, there is something extra special about spending them in Surfside Beach TX.

Whether you live in a house here, or rent a house here, there is nothing like gathering the whole family together and decorating a beach house. Many of my decorations even come from the beach!
We get our tree soon after Thanksgiving. We like hand-made or natural only ornaments from the beach. We decorate with starfish, fishing lures, fishing bobbers, and even shells! The rest of the house has similar touches like bowls of shells, shells with candles and lots of driftwood and lights. We love to bring the outdoors in!

Another fun tradition at the beach is to grab our chairs and a blanket (if it’s cold) and enjoy the beautiful beach and ocean. The beach is not just for Summer! And remember, you are not fighting the crowds!
There is still plenty to do here during the holidays. There are a dozen restaurants to try out. Several shops sell fun stuff and souvenirs or last minute Christmas gifts! You can walk on the jetty to see the dolphins or go crabbing at the Crab Pier. You can walk the beach and enjoy all the coastals birds. And of course, go shelling. Shells are more abundant in the winter! Or you can just relax with a hot cup of cocoa.

No matter what you decide to do for the holidays, make an effort to include the beach in your families festivities. There’s nothing more rejuvenating!

Christmas on the Island

My most favorite time in Surfside Beach Texas is in December. Half of the month is warm and sunny and the other half is usually cool and crisp. There is a slower, laid back mentality that we all love. Of course, there are fewer visitors and long stretches of beach to yourself.

It’s the time of year that you have your pick of beach house rentals. Whether it’s beach front, or with a pool. (Yes, people swim in December!) You can easlily get a seat in the restaurant of your choosing, and the shops have the best sales!
But, my most favorite winter pasttime is the amount of shells you can find when it gets cold.

Once the cold hits, the shells are abundant and you can find all sorts of treasures.
So, don’t think the beach is only for Summer. Many people take advantage of the mild weather and rent homes for the whole month!
