Top Ten Tips For The Best Beach Vacation

Heading to the beach can be a stressful adventure, especially when little kids are involved! We hope that our top ten tips will help you plan this summer for the best beach vacation ever!

  1. Research the town before traveling

It is important to know the town and activities in it. Make sure to get familiar with the food options whether your family prefers to cook or dine out. Know activities around town in case the weather gets bad.

  1. Bring your own chairs

Most places will have chairs available, but it is a limited number. Bring your own in case you need extra or prefer a specific kind. 

  1. Protect your skin

Research the best sunscreen for skin. Pay attention if you have fair or sensitive skin. Try and stay inside or under shade between 10 am and 2pm. Bring aloe just in case someone on the trip does get burned.

  1. Bring lots of plastic bags

Use plastic bags to protect electronics such as cameras and phones during long days on the beach.

 5. Stay hydrated

It is easy to get dehydrated during long days in the sun. Use water bottles, especially aluminum, to keep water cold during the day. 

  1. Use a wagon to transport all the beach essentials

After a long day you are not going to want to carry the bags or take more than one trip. Bring a wagon to avoid unnecessary trips. 

  1. Use reusable grocery bags as beach bags

They are cheap and easy to clean. Store your sunscreen, towels, clothes, and all other beach essentials.  

  1. Keep a small broom in the car

If you are traveling to and from the beach each day, keep a small broom to clean out sand at the end of a long day.

  1. Bring baby powder

Baby powder is good for removing sand off legs and feet.

  1. Bring cheap flip flops for the ocean 

The bottom of the ocean has rocks that can cut the bottom of your feet. Bring cheap flip flops to wear while playing in the ocean.
