Travel Tip 1: Pack clothes that can be layered.
You may experience different temperatures throughout your trip, so layering allows you to adjust to the changing weather.

Travel Tip 2: Choose footwear that is comfortable and versatile.
Pack shoes that can be worn with multiple outfits, and that are comfortable for walking long distances. I packed this waterproof boot for my Fall trip to Breckenridge, and It has a sneaker sole. Boots and sneakers are great options for fall travel between seasons, and they can be worn with jeans, leggings, or dresses. Remember to wear your bulkiest shoes on the plane to save space in your carry-on bag.
Travel Tip 3: Pack toiletries that are a helpful travel-size.
Use small containers to pack your shampoo, conditioner, and body wash, or purchase travel-sized versions of your favorite products. Remember to pack a small bag with your toothbrush, toothpaste, deodorant, and any other essential items. Keep in mind that most airlines have restrictions on liquids, so make sure to check the guidelines before packing.
