As the cliche goes, it’s the most wonderful time of the year. Unfortunately, you cannot fully enjoy the season unless you are winter-ready. For most, this means struggling to pack bulky, warm clothes to take to their cabin rentals around Branson, MO, for vacation.
However, you don’t need to carry heavy luggage when traveling to a Branson vacation home rental. Here are some essential things you should bring with you to make your winter vacation fun and comfortable.
Choose a Waterproof Backpack Going to Your Branson Vacation Rental Home
Instead of a bulky rolling suitcase, why not use a trusty waterproof backpack that’s more convenient to travel around with. You don’t even need to worry about taking it with you when you visit any of the three beautiful lakes surrounding Branson. It will help protect all your belongings from getting wet, either from joining the fun water activities or walking through the Historic Branson Downtown under light snow.
Bring Insulating Layers to Bring to Your Branson Vacation Home Rental
Though it might be tempting to bring your cute, heavy sweaters to your travels, it simply is not practical. Instead, pack thin, insulating clothes (like long sleeve tops, thermal underwear, wool socks, and scarves) to bring with you to your Branson vacation rental home. Thick sweaters and coats will take too much space in your luggage, leaving you less room for other clothes you will need. If you must, wear the heaviest piece of clothing–such as your bulky jacket and thick scarves–that you want to take with you during your trip. This way, you are saving enough space for other essential items.
Don’t Forget Your Lip Balm and Moisturizers
Cold winter winds can make your skin and lips extra dry. For those who have experienced this, you are well aware of how painful it is to nurse chapped lips and flaky skin. Lip balms and moisturizers can help retain moisture and protect your skin from the harsh elements during winter.
Always Stay Warm by Bringing a Thermos Flask
Usually, cabin rentals around Branson, MO, include kitchen essentials when you book them for winter. However, it might be good to bring your own thermos flask as you need it while traveling on the road. Aside from keeping you hydrated with a hot beverage, travelers also use thermos flasks to store some temporary warmth during emergencies.
Bring a Torch
Yes, modern mobile phones are equipped with torches. However, using your phone’s torch can drain its battery very quickly–something you don’t want to happen, especially when you find yourself stuck somewhere dark and needing help. It especially comes in handy when trying to navigate around the Ozarks’ wooden or rural areas. Most torchlights are light and easy to pack, so you don’t have to worry about it taking up some space in your luggage.
