What To Pack For a Short City-Break

August 27, 2018

Everyone has their vacation destination of choice. Some people prefer to spend a week lying on the soft sand of a beach. Others like to get lost in the mountains. Others yet, like to glam it up and spend their time away from work enjoying all the riches of the world’s finest cities. All three of these types of vacation require different items in the luggage bag. Below, we take a look at what you’ll need to have if you’re visiting a city in order to get the most out of your trip.

Long Time Walking
A trip to the city is about relaxation...but you’ll have to carve it out. It’s more about luxury relaxation. By that, we mean going to see the spa or getting a massage; you might find it difficult to naturally find a relaxed space just as you’re exploring. Because for sure, exploring is what you’ll be doing. You’re going to be walking a lot, so make sure you have shows that feel extra comfortable! While you’ll want to take some extra shoes for any nights out you’ll have (more on them later), for the most part, your footwear should be all about navigating the streets for hours at a time.

Changing Weather
If you go to the mountains, you’ll know that you’re going to spend the majority of your time outdoors. If you go to a beach destination, you’ll be sure of getting great weather. But the city? That’s different. They didn’t plonk cities where there was good weather; other concerns were at play. As such, places like New York, London, San Francisco, Paris, they all get their fair share of poor weather. The people who live there get on with it, and if you want to make the most of your trip even when the rain is falling, so will you. Pack some waterproof clothing.

A Classy Night Out
World-class cities have the best restaurants, bars, and nightclubs in the world, and you’ll want to check them out while you’re there. But it’s understandable that people are a little bit intimidated by these cool and trendy places...everyone dresses so well! The good news is that if you pack the right clothing, you can not just fit in; you can stand out. Make sure you’re packing a couple of boutique dresses, nice shoes, clutch bags, and the makeup you need to look your best. You’ll have a great night.

Accessories play a bigger role in the cities than they do in other destinations. A travel guide for the city will point you to the best places; a backpack will help you to take all the supplies you need out for the day, and a camera will capture those awesome one-off moments that only happen in thriving cities.

And finally...make sure you’re packing “space” into your luggage. Don’t overfill it with the items you already own when there are so many awesome shopping opportunities where you’re going. You will buy a lot!
