Baseball Caps – Good Traveling Hat?

I’m a big believer in hats for traveling. They solve hat hair, keep the sun off your nose and somehow manage to keep you both warm in the winter and cool in the summer. Read my post on how to choose the perfect hat.

I’ve been a lover of hats forever, but what do you do about travelers who prefer only baseball caps? My husband and son are both baseball cap lovers! Baseball caps are great, too, especially for souvenirs. We have quite a collection.

This may or may not be the image you want to put forth while traveling.  Many insist that a baseball cap screams ‘American‘. It is true that American’s love baseball and baseball caps. After all baseball is ‘the great American pastime’!

Baseball Caps – Good Traveling Hat? – Sends a message

Is there even such a thing as a plain baseball cap? They are embroidered with messages of all sorts. We print them with names from companies and sports teams and political views. While here in the states we wear our hearts on our sleeves/caps, this isn’t always seen positively around the world.

Sometimes Americans get in trouble here in the states with their baseball cap message – that isn’t at all what you want as part of your traveling adventure.

Baseball Caps – Vive America!

Everyone is proud of their homeland. Pride is a wonderful feeling! However; wearing a hat with your American hometown or country on it just serves to put a barrier between you and the people that you have traveled so far to see.

Wearing something that blends in with your surroundings will give you a more true peak at your travel destination. Reconsider the baseball cap as a traveling accessory.

    A hat is always the ONE thing I forget to bring on trips. I always remember the sunglasses, but never think to protect my head with a hat. Thanks for the reminder 🙂
