Few things sound as relaxing as a day at the beach. But when it comes down to it, taking the whole family to the beach can be a little stressful. As a family friendly dealership, Sierra CDJR can completely empathize with this. This is why we like to use these tips to make our beach days a little breezier.
Bring plastic bags
Having a stash of both ziplock bags and used shopping bags can save you in a pinch, in numerous situations. Use a ziplock to protect phones, keys, and other valuables from water, and shopping bags for things like trash or carrying home seashells.
Claiming a good spot early in the day takes away a lot of the hassle that comes from walking up and down looking for space on a full beach. Pack plenty of snacks and get there in the morning to make the most of the day.
Pack foods separately
When you’re packing your beach snacks, use individual plastic or glass containers for each item, if possible. Sometimes the name “sand”wich becomes too literal. With this tip, it’s possible to save the majority of items from an unwanted extra crunch.
Bring a soft-bristled dust broom
Having a small dust broom tucked away in your car gives you a convenient tool for gently brushing sand off of kids, feet, and shoes, so that you can leave most of the sand at the beach instead of in your car.
