To live in Miami is to go to the beach. Whether you make this a daily pilgrimage or wait until the weekend, your beach time can be improved by implementing a few of these terrific tips. These will definitely change up your beach game.
Bring a Small Pop-Up Tent
It might sound counterintuitive to put up a tent when you’re enjoying fun in the sun but these are perfect for babies and toddlers when it’s time to take a nap. Just make sure the tent you have is one that can fold up into a zip up carrying case. There’s also portable pop-up shelters that cover a lot more area than a beach umbrella.
Use a Wagon
If your kid has a wagon, then you might want to put it to use for your beach day. It’s a great way to get stuff from your car down to the shoreline. Once emptied, the kids can use it for their own beach fun. It’s a lot easier than trying to carry everything in one trip especially if you’re chasing after toddlers.
Pick a Spot by the Lifeguard
Your beach day should start early. By being the first one on the beach, you’ll get your choice of spots. The best spot would be by the lifeguard tower. This way everyone will know where to find you. Just be sure not to sit directly in front of the tower so to give the guards a clear line of sight.
Use Mesh Bags
Just because you love the beach doesn’t mean you love bringing sand home. Mesh bags to carry toys and other items are great way to shake out the sand before you get into the car. They also let you know exactly what you’re carrying.
Packed Lunches Separately
There will come a time when your kids are going to be clamoring for something to eat. You should pack their lunches separately just as you would when you send them off to school. That way if you drop one sandwich in the sand you have a backup ready. Cupcake liners make a great top for your sodas keep the bugs off. And a big block of ice will last longer in your cooler.
As you’re getting ready to go down to the beach, you’ll probably be pulling a lot of stuff out of the garage. This is the time to take an assessment of what can go and what can stay. If you’re dealing with a lot of old beach umbrellas, broken folding chairs and other beach items, then perhaps you want to get rid of them all to make more room. Junk King Miami can take care of that task with one phone call. All of that beach paraphernalia can be loaded up onto the truck and carted away for safe disposal. Cleaning out your garage and putting these tips to work is a great way to kick off your summer season at the beach.
