Sponsored Post: 20 End of Summer Getaway Essentials

Hello dear friends…a few weeks back I posted about my collaboration with Amex and the Amex EveryDay Credit Card…which lucky for me also involves our National Parks. We took a quick getaway to Crater Lake and it was nothing short of magical…I encourage to take a peek at my post here. I thought it only seems fit to follow-up that post with a list of my 20 must-have items for a momentous family road trip, especially if you are heading out for Labor Day weekend as a last hoorah. I chose 20 because one of the amazing perks of the Amex EveryDay is getting 20% more points after making 20 or more purchases with the card in a billing period. Which, combined with no annual-fees, makes this the perfect card for on-the-go multitaskers!

It’s funny that as a blog editor, many of my posts involve items that are part of a beautiful daydream…this post, however, gives you a glimpse into my essentials…items I actually take with me on a weekend getaway…practical even.



Lastly, it isn’t too late to submit your #EveryDayMoments photos of your family enjoying a trip to the park (any park) for the EveryDay Park Moments Photo Contest. If you are like me, you have a ton of photos from your local park this summer.

Be sure to submit your photo by August 31 and include a caption with #EveryDayMoments for a chance to win one of three trips to some spectacular National Parks: National Mall & Memorial Parks (Washington, DC), Yosemite National Park (California) and Grand Canyon National Park (Arizona)

Click Here to Enter between July 30th and August 31st; terms apply.

This is part of a larger American Express initiative that will help encourage volunteering in America’s National Parks.

The perfect way to finish off this magical season…
