Picnic Essentials For You & Your Family

picnic essentials


A nice picnic under the beautiful sun is the perfect idea for a romantic date or a fun day with the whole family. Be sure to run through this checklist so you can prepare for the perfect picnic.


1. Check the Weather

Make sure that no rain gets in the way of your perfect day. Knowing how the weather will be will also help you better prepare your outfit for the day.

2. Wear Comfortable Clothing

Having a picnic means you’ll be in the great outdoors, so it’s important to dress comfortably. Wearing sneakers, breathable clothing, and a light jacket is recommended.

3. Bring Sunscreen

Being out in the sun can do wonders for your mood and well-being, but it’s important to take precautions. Bring a bottle of sunscreen so you can regularly apply throughout the day.

4. Pack Food and Drinks

What’s a picnic without some delicious food and beverages? If you lack the time or energy to prepare a meal, simply bring along some snacks or stop by Captain Jack’s Bar and Grill.

5. Prepare Activities

Even after the food is gone, the fun doesn’t have to stop. Prepare a list of activities and be sure to bring the necessary supplies such as playing cards, board games, kites, and more.

6. Decide on a Location

You can have your picnic on a bench, on the grass, or even on the beach. Picnic blankets are optional since Hidden Cove provides comfortable picnic benches throughout the park.
