What to Pack for a Fall Getaway at Sunset Beach Hotel

Posted by Sarah Barban on Sep 30, 2019 8:35:46 AM

Fall is such a great time for a getaway or a weekend trip. There's something about crisp air and blustery days that were made for traveling. 

Book an autumn getaway to Sunset Beach Hotel, throw somethings into a suitcase and hit the road for a new adventure. 

Here are a few things to pack for the perfect fall getaway.

Comfy Shoes

Early fall is the perfect time for hiking. The weather isn't too hot, but the days are still longer and there are fewer bugs. That means you'll want to back walking shoes or hiking boots so you can explore nearby parks with Kiptopeke and Eastern Shore Wildlife Refuge

A Bathing Suit

In Virginia, fall weather can be crisp and clear or balmy and bright. You'll want to prepare for both possibilities. If the weather is warm, you won't want to miss a beach day. Pack your swimsuit in case you get the chance to lounge by one of our two resort pools or wander down to the private beach. 

Campfire Supplies

Grab a bundle of wood and some s'more supplies from our camp store and gather around one of our community fire pits. It's the perfect way to pass a crisp evening with friends. 


Again, the weather in Virginia can be a little up and down in the fall. Your best bet is to pack light layers so that you can easily tailor your outfit to the weather. 

A Good Book

Nothing is better than curling up under a blanket with a good book on a chilly evening. If you run into a rainy day during your trip, again it's Virginia in fall so you never know, you'll be glad to have a book with you. 

Cozy Items

Your fall getaway should be all about relaxing and enjoying the season. To make your experience special bring along items that give you that cozy feeling, whether it's your favorite tea, a fuzzy blanket or a well-worn flannel. 

Pack all or a few of these items for a fall getaway at Sunset Beach Hotel and you're sure to have everything you need to enjoy our beautiful resort and a gorgeous autumn on Virginia's Eastern Shore.
