United States of America What to Pack: 34 reviews and 22 photos
For cheap/quality goods, read for shops b4 u go!
Luggage and bags: If you're travelling by public transport like trains, you need small to medium sized luggages. Check the train/bus companies in the area/city you're going.
(We were scared to drive in LA and luckily my relatives drove us around.)
Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: You don't need a lot of thick jackets so one or two (if staying longer) would be enough. I made the mistake of bringing lots of wooly scarves, socks, jackets, etc. and I didn't use them at all, probably just one coat for Niagara Falls.
If you think you need something like an article of clothing- socks, singlets, etc..you can buy them cheaply at outlet shops if you researched before hand where they are. I did and I ended up with two extra luggages as I shopped at the Aurora outlet shopping mall outside Chicago just a few days before we went back to Sydney. ( I was lucky to be given extra luggage by my relatives too!)
Toiletries and Medical Supplies: Don't forget your puffer/allergy medication as spring is tricky for asthma and other allergy sufferers.
Photo Equipment: Take small photo /video equipment if you plan to to do a lot of walking too at theme parks.
Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: No need for these unless you plan to stay till summer,LOL! Or if using the hotel swimming pool your swimwear is needed of course!
Miscellaneous: Make sure what you booked (re accommodation) is what is given to you. Sometimes if we have a late arrival at a hotel we don't bother, we just want to crash on our beds. Take time to ensure you are getting your money's worth. If you paid for a two bedroom or suite, etc..make sure that's what you get!
Request for pillows if you are not very comfy with your bed. This should be free in most hotels. If there is no microwave in teh room ,ask if there is a way to hire it, in case you got kids who need warm drink at night.
Research for shopping outlets so you get reasonable prices for quality goods like th e one outside Chicago- Aurora shopping mall where I got heaps of bargains for name brand and quality goods.
