Top 5 Friday: Nantucket (or any outdoor adventure) Travel Essentials
Happy Top 5 Friday!!!!!!!!!
As of right now we’re into our second full day in Nantucket so I thought it would be fitting to share my Top 5 Travel Essentials for exploring a New England beach town – particularly when you will be exploring via bicycle :)
Outside of the major things like clothes and toiletries, these are the 5 most important items we packed. We don’t have a car and the weather is significantly cooler than NC so we were really trying to prepare for everything.
1. Picnic backpack.
Since we’re biking everywhere we’ll need to carry stuff with us so we thought this would be the perfect solution for some water and maybe a little wine and cheese for a picnic on the beach :)
The highs are in the mid 70’s all week and I’m guessing there’ll be some wind too, so this light windbreaker should come in handy!
3. A nice camera.
I don’t always travel with my nice camera because iPhones are pretty sufficient these days, but I’m going to try and get a few great beach shots to frame. The Canon Rebel is a great mid-line DSLR!
4. The Island (or any Elin Hilderbrand book).
I’m a sucker for an easy reading romcom-type book and lots of Elin Hilderbrand’s books are based in Nantucket. This is the last book I read and it was a fun one!
Like I said we’ll be on foot or bike all week so great shoes are a must! My everyday walking/running shoes were worn out so I recently snagged this new pair of New Balance shoes and they have a memory foam insole and are SOOOO comfy! Seriously so good.
Well, guys, if any of you are headed out on a vacation adventure that involves a lot of outdoor walking and biking I hope this little list helps!
Have a great weekend and make sure to follow along on Instagram to see some Nantucket sights!
