The Only Checklist You’ll Need For Travel Essentials.jpg

Make what you pack a pure pleasure and an experience as you unzip your suitcase!

What you pack now, may make or break your next adventure! There are probably two types of packers that exist — the ones who pack little things here and there a week before their departure, and those who pack five minutes before their plane leaves! And while there’s really no wrong way to pack, there are items you’ll want to have with you.


At Silver City Resort, not only is Silver City near Sequoia National Park which makes for some amazing outdoor adventures, but it’s secluded and the only traffic you’ll hear are the trees whispering in the wind and the cicadas making their nightly call. Take refuge in Silver City Mountain Resort to relax and unwind and take a couple moments to venture into the only checklist you’ll need for your next adventure!



Travel Essentials and Travel Scenarios

Each new adventure that we take will require a different set of travel essentials read all about them below.


Top Things People Forget

Time away from your normal everyday life — whether it’s taking a weekend getaway or a vacation — provides the much-needed refuge from emails, meetings, carpooling your kids, and just the daily grind that we’re all up against, and gives you some room to relax.

But even preparing for a vacation can be stressful! Making a checklist is always helpful, but we still often forget the essentials. Double check your suitcase to ensure you have what you need, and explore what most people seem to always forget!

  • Socks
  • Toothbrush
  • Toothpaste
  • Comb
  • Deodorant

The Eat, Pray, Love or SoloTravel Experience

Solo travel is no longer a taboo subject, both single and partnered people indulge in its simplicity and beckon to its call. If you’re post break-up and pulling an Eat, Pray, Love excursion or you simply just want the freedom of solo travel, here are some travel essentials.

Sleep mask - Because you’ll likely be sleeping in odd places at odd times, a sleep mask can really be helpful when you need to get even 15 minutes of shut-eye.

Earplugs - Now we would argue that earplugs top the list on any travel checklist because life is noisy! Rarely are you secluded and all alone in the quiet, so earplugs can help you get a good night’s sleep or help relax you when things get hectic.

Sheet masks - Self-care is still important when you’re cruising Rome, right?! Pack along a couple of sheet masks to indulge in-between plane rides, bus tours, or the back of a pick-up truck in Costa Rica!





There is no shortage of outdoor adventures to be had in and around the Silver City Mountain Resort area. From hiking to fly fishing, there are plenty of ways to explore this region.

What are some good things to pack before you come? While you can rent most of it, it’s a good idea to pack the things you like and want with you on the trails.

  • Hiking Boots/Trail Shoes
  • Hydration Pack
  • Hiking Poles
  • Hat
  • Sunglasses
  • Layers of Clothing
  • Protein Bars

Romantic Travel

Whether you’re on a journey to Paris or Bali when you’re with your partner that’s the ultimate travel essential! Pack a couple these things for the perfect adventure!

A little luxury - If you’re in Paris or Bali make things fancy and luxurious by pack a fun silk kimono or an ultra plush robe for you both. It doesn’t have to be big and bulky, it could even be a silk head scarf or hat that makes travel a little more indulgent.

Spa accessories - From bubble bath, bath bombs, and essential oils, plack along some spa accessories that are relaxing and make for a fun night in an expensive hotel or ocean bungalow where the waves lull you to sleep.

The ultimate music playlist - Sometimes it’s fun to just kick back and cruise to music. Create a playlist of songs you both enjoy and those that have great memories tied to them. And, it never hurts to have a playlist ready for you both to bust a move!

Travel is exciting and new whether solo or as a romantic getaway. When it comes to the ultimate travel essentials, it’s always those things that will bring joy and that are also functional that are the best to have along.
