It’s no surprise that travel picks up over the winter holidays. As the excitement builds and you get ready to see your friends and family, there are a lot of things you can do to ensure you experience a smooth and memorable ride. Take heed of these helpful hints to get ahead of the holiday rush and experience a totally stress-free vacation. 

Plan Ahead

Every successful trip, be it on the road to a new holiday vacation or a classic family reunion, goes smoother with a plan. Make sure to check the weather and map out your trip ahead of time to make sure you’re taking the safest, most efficient route available. 

Leave Early

To make sure you arrive on time, it’s a good idea to leave a half hour to an hour early, especially if there’s a chance of inclement weather. Also, getting up early gives you an extra few minutes to double and triple check your bags to make sure everything you need is packed and accounted for before you’re off and on your way. 

Change Your Method of Travel

Automobiles are overrated. Sure, they’re certainly the classic means to get from point A to point B, but if you’re already on vacation, why not consider taking the scenic route via bus tour or bike ride? You never know what you might find lying just around the bend or down the beaten trail. And no matter where your travels take you, it’s always fun to switch things up. 

Extend Your Stay

It’s never too late to stay a little longer. And in a fun and sunny place like this, there’s always more to do. If you spent a week searching for shells and lounging on the beach, then why not spend another visiting the museums, parks, restaurants and other in-town establishments that make The Beaches of Fort Myers & Sanibel a one-of-a-kind destination.
