The sun is shining, the waves are crashing, and it’s all calling your name! Getting away to the Sunshine State for a family vacation is very much in your future, and Carl’s Van Rentals wants to be a part of it! So, it’s time to pack your bags, load up the minivan, and head to the beach for the perfect day! Just don’t forget these key essentials.
There’s nothing like a day at the beach – the sound of waves crashing against the shore, the smell of salt in the air, and the feel of sand between your toes. But before you can enjoy all that the beach has to offer, there’s one very important item you need to pack: sunscreen! Sunscreen is essential for protecting your skin from the sun’s harmful rays, and the higher the SPF, the more protection.
2. Towels and Beach Blankets
Towels and a beach blanket make for a perfect day at the beach. The towel can be used to dry off after a dip in the ocean, and the blanket can be used to lay on while soaking up the sun. The blanket can also be used as a picnic blanket for an impromptu lunch on the sand. When it’s time to go home, simply roll the towels and blank up, and pack them away.
Whether you’re trying to avoid a sunburn or just want to stay cool, an umbrella is an essential beach day accessory. Umbrellas come in various sizes, so you can choose one that’s big enough to provide ample shade for your entire group. Some umbrellas even have special features like built-in speakers. And if you’re worried about the wind blowing your umbrella away, look for one with a sturdy base and wind-resistant design.
4. Waterproof Camera
A day at the beach is the perfect opportunity to relax and enjoy the company of family and friends. But it’s also a great opportunity to capture some amazing memories. That’s why a waterproof camera is an essential item for any beach day. Have some fun snapping pictures in silly poses or playing in the water with the kids. Simply pack it away in your bag for safekeeping when you’re done.
5. Snacks and Drinks
A day at the beach wouldn’t be complete without a cooler packed full of snacks and drinks. When it comes to beach snacks, there are endless possibilities. But for the ultimate beach experience, you can’t go wrong with a few classics: sandwiches, chips, fruit, and of course, ice cream. As for drinks, cold beer or lemonade always hits the spot.
