Packing for a quick, multi-day trip is deceptively simple. You don’t need a lot, but it has to be right. When you stay with Four Seasons, all you have to do is grab the essentials and let us take care of the rest.
Planning a golf or beach trip with the family in tow? Meeting friends in Los Angeles for a special charity gala? From the city to the beach to the mountains, Four Seasons goes above and beyond to make travel as seamless as possible, starting from the moment you begin to pack, thanks to the recently launched Four Seasons Travel collection.
So grab your Steamer and join us on any of these four getaways, all of them perfect for a bit of weekend fun. Here’s a look at what to do and what (not) to pack for three delightful days in Orlando, Costa Rica, Jackson Hole and Los Angeles.
WHAT TO DO
Four Seasons Resort Orlando at WALT DISNEY WORLD® Resort has quite possibly thought of everything. A 5-acre water park, splash pad and complimentary kids’ club will keep little ones happy (there’s an adults-only pool, too). And the team at the on-site Disney Planning Center can help you organize your entire weekend, complete with a private VIP Tour of the Disney Parks and special experiences.
While the kids will have plenty to smile about all weekend long, Four Seasons Golf and Sports Club Orlando offers a grown-up playground that’s just as exciting. Tee off at Tranquilo Golf Course, a Tom Fazio–designed course that’s also a Certified Audubon Sanctuary; perfect your swing at the Resort’s 16-acre practice facility; or take your game to the next level during a private lesson with the PGA Director of Instruction.
WHAT TO PACK
Custom-fit golf club rentals, tennis racket rentals and stroller rentals mean there’s no need to bring your own sports or kids gear with you for recreation or theme park outings – a relief for parents and golfers alike. Call the Resort in advance to have your room outfitted with a crib, playpen or cot, and just pack the clothes you need for the weekend. Two well-curated on-site boutiques, Fable and Wardrobe, carry all manner of kids’ clothing and accessories, womenswear and menswear, jewellery, and shoes. You might feel like picking up swim trunks, sunglasses or a hat. Even if you do forget something, there’s no need to worry about that here.

WHAT TO DO
Located along Costa Rica’s western shore, Four Seasons Resort Costa Rica at Peninsula Papagayo is a 181-room resort that offers surfing, beautiful beaches and pools, birdwatching, and rainforest adventures galore. From zip-lining to outrigger canoeing, the Resort’s in-house adventure providers, Papagayo Explorers, ensure you’ll have plenty of opportunities to explore both the tropical landscape and the surrounding waters of the Pacific Ocean.
Immerse yourself in the wonders of the rainforest, or let this be the weekend you finally catch that wave. Costa Rica is home to many world-famous surfing locations – like Witch’s Rock from Endless Summer II – and the knowledgeable instructors at SurfX will help you find your flow, whether you’re a beginner or an experienced surfer. If you’re looking for fun that’s a little more grounded, try your hand at pickleball at the Resort’s Peninsula Papagayo Club.
WHAT TO PACK
Thoughtful touches – such as reef-friendly sunscreen stations near all three Resort pools and a complimentary rash guard provided with surf lessons – mean you can leave your well-stocked beach bag at home. Rooms at the Resort feature a hand-woven tote for you to keep, made by the Boruca tribe, one of eight indigenous communities in Costa Rica. Papagayo Explores also provides everything you need for exploring the landscape, including ponchos for occasional showers and binoculars to borrow. Forgot flip-flops for the kids, no athleisure for a quick workout, missing your strappy sandals? No problem. Hit the well-edited Alma and Estrella boutiques (think Pucci, Missoni, and local labels Moonset and Maracuya) on property. And if you decide to sign up for a last-minute tennis or pickleball match, the Resort offers complimentary tennis shoes for you to slip right into. Four Seasons is a great place to play it by ear and fully embrace Costa Rica’s pura vida mentality.

WHAT TO DO
A dose of nature is good for the soul. Spend a long weekend in western Wyoming, where the concierge team at Four Seasons Resort and Residences Jackson Hole can set up fly-fishing trips, stargazing sessions, white-water rafting and even a potential encounter with the elusive grey wolf. The Day With the Wolves excursion – created in partnership with Jackson Hole Wildlife Safaris and Yellowstone Safari Company – is a once-in-a-lifetime experience that includes flying by private jet over Yellowstone National Park, taking in aerial views of Old Faithful and Grand Prismatic, and then landing in the northern region of the park to look for wolves, along with moose, elk, bison and bears, in their natural habitat.
WHAT TO PACK
Located the heart of Teton Village, the 155-room Resort goes out of its way for guests, whether procuring climbing rentals from a nearby shop or staffing the Ski Concierge in the winter to take care of everything from boot fittings to lift tickets. The on-site Base Camp is not only the Resort’s activity centre, but also its retail space for all things big and small, from bug spray and windbreakers to hydration packs and beanies. Pack your activewear, layers to take you from day to night and a pair of comfortable closed-toe shoes – everything else will be provided, no matter which activities you choose.
Embrace nature in Jackson Hole
WHAT TO DO
Meet up with friends for some fun in the city, or treat your partner to a romantic Hollywood getaway – either way, you’ll feel like a celebrity all weekend long at Beverly Wilshire, A Four Seasons Hotel. Whether it’s getting Lakers tickets, arranging a helicopter tour over Malibu or organizing a day of pampering at the Forbes Five-Star Spa, there’s nothing this Les Clefs d’Or Concierge team can’t do.
Opt for one of the Hotel’s custom experiences, or have a bespoke itinerary created for your stay based entirely on your interests. A stone’s throw from Rodeo Drive and all its designer boutiques, the Hotel also offers a house car to be used within a 2.5-mile radius of the property on Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings, putting the best of Beverly Hills within easy reach.
WHAT TO PACK
A trip to Los Angeles is the perfect opportunity to pack light and shop when you get there. Beverly Wilshire partners with LaLaLuxe, a personal shopper and stylist service that can consult with you prior to your arrival; choose dresses, suits, accessories and handbags based on your preferences; and deliver everything to your room ready to try on. Though the more lead time the better, LaLaLuxe has managed to find outfits for ballroom events and awards shows on a day’s notice. And to finish your red carpet–ready look, stop in at the Hotel’s Lea Journo Salon for your hair, makeup and nails.
