7. Rain Gear
Rain occurs quite frequently here, especially during the summer months. Bringing your own rain gear will save you a lot of time, money, and hassle when it starts to drizzle. A light poncho or umbrella should do the trick and will enable you to proceed with your day as planned. Rain here tends to slow people down, so coming to the parks prepared will give you a major advantage.
This is an essential item to bring with you. Even when it’s overcast here, the sun is still beating down. The last thing you want is sunburn, so don’t forget to lather up before you head to the parks. It’s always good to bring some along with you as well so that you can replenish later on. Bringing sunscreen is sometimes overlooked because most people figure that they won’t really need it, when in fact they do. Protect your skin and don’t forget to bring it with you.
