    Humidity vs AC

    by kellycal Written Jun 23, 2006

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: If you are visiting anywhere in South Florida, the thing you should always remember is: it is 98 degrees with 98% humidity OUTSIDE....and 65 degrees INSIDE!!! We keep the electical companies in business. So what that means is bring your coolest shirts, shorts and pants...and then pack a sweater!

    Toiletries and Medical Supplies: Toiletries all accounted for..this is a big city. Due to the fact that Doctors are a dime a dozen here, the medical supplies and services available are extremely abundant, so if you run out, it will be ok.

    Photo Equipment: Definately. The west coast has the awesome sunsets, but we have the awesome sunrises.

    Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: Virtually no camping in the city, so the outdoor gear would be for the beach. And, please believe me....you WILL burn!! So, if you are not coming from a tropical country, and don't bring strong (30SPF-45SPF) sunscreen, after your first day at the beach, you will be miserable for the rest of your stay--we see it all the time. Either bring or buy a hat that will shade your face, drink as much water as you can, and be extremely careful between 12 noon and about 3-3:30 pm. Most people wear coverups over their bathing suits, but unless you are going in to public eating places, a lot of people dont. A big beach towel is not necessary since there are so many at such inexpensive prices here, but bring a bag to the beach to keep the keys, camera, etc. in, as the sand gets EVERYWHERE!!!

    Miscellaneous: Summertime is the rainy season, so it downpours every morning and every afternoon for about an hour or two. Winter time there is very little rain.

    Sunscreen is a must!

    by sunlovey Written Feb 8, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Luggage and bags: Because it's usually hot here, you can probably get away with fewer and smaller bags/luggage.

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Reason being, you'll need to pack a couple swimsuits, shorts, lightweight pants & skirts, T-shirts,a lightweight jacket MAYBE. For day, flip flops. For evening, if you're into clubs and whatnot, a couple of sexy tops, nicer jeans, cute skirts, for men nice pants and collared shirts- bring a pair of nicer shoes too.

    Toiletries and Medical Supplies: Sunscreen, possibly insect repellent as we do have mosquitos sometimes, if you get sea sick how about some motion sickness pills too because water sports and boating abound here.

    Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: your beach towel... you can rent floats, chairs and umbrellas at some beaches.

    Miscellaneous: a great book/magazines to read when you're lounging on the beach

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Luggage and bags: Any type of luggage is fine, as long as the airlines accept it.

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Pack mostly casual clothes, and perhaps a dressy outfit for a night out. In the wintertime, you might bring a sweater, although the temps rarely get cold enough to wear a coat.

    Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: All you need for the beach is a swimming suit and towel. If you are going camping, would advise bringing a good insect repellent.

    Miscellaneous: A visit to Palm Beach wouldn't be complete without a water excursion, either a dinner and casino cruise, a narrated sight seeing trip, or a sailing adventure on a catamaran.
