The Best Nintendo Switch Accessories For Your First Vacation

When your favorite games come with you, make sure you’re getting the most of your system.

Bringing your Nintendo Switch on your first vacation is a no brainer. Not only can it keep your kids entertained in the back seat of the car or yourself entertained on a flight, but it's also a perfect activity for days when inclement weather keep you holed up inside your hotel room or rental unit. And if you have the standard model, you can connect it to a TV so the whole family can play.

Of course, you'll want to pick up some choice accessories for your trip—from handheld cases and screen protectors to prevent your Switch (or Switch Lite) from damage to charging docks, wheels, and extra controllers.
