What To Take To The Beach To Stay Hydrated and Have Fun
Warm summer months mean plenty of fun in the sun. And a family beach trip is always the perfect summer getaway!
Whether you’re close to home or road tripping to your coastal destination, the beach is also a great option to vacation on a budget. Grocery shopping instead of eating out will save you tons of money. And packing your own supplies, like a beach blanket, will be a cheaper alternative to rental chairs.
For most people, a day at the beach is casual. It’s chill time. Time to sit and relax, soak up the sun, play in the water and build sandcastles. So you don’t need to pack 18 outfits in your small luggage! I know it’s hard for us to not bring extras. I mean, nine pair of underwear for 3 nights isn’t ridiculous, right?! Didn’t think so.
But really… you’ll be on the beach in your swimsuit (and maybe a coverup) most of the time. So pack light and save the space and hassle of dragging along a heavy bag. If you do plan on going out to eat or participating in nightlife, don’t overthink it. Shorts and a light shirt or a sundress and sandals is the perfect attire for evening outings after a long day on the beach.
But there are lots of things you definitely want to pack up in your beach tote and bring with you once you’re ready to make your way across the sand.
So grab a pen and paper and feel free to jot down some of these beach essentials for fun and hydration!
