There’s nothing like going to the beach, or “down the shore,” depending on the area you live. It’s a great way to unwind and relax and get your mind off of work and school. There’s just something about the salt air that seems to take your worries away. “Put your toes in the water and butt in the sand,” as Zac Brown says, and hunker down with a good book and an icy mug of your favorite beverage.
Unless, of course, you prefer to be active on the beach. There are many different activities that you can enjoy while vacationing at the beach such as swimming in the ocean, sunbathing on the sand, catching a wave, and surfing. Don’t forget your volleyball to bump, set, and spike, a couple of paddle ball racquets and a ball is a must, get your hands dirty and build some sandcastles, and explore the tide pools.
Whatever you decide to do, you’ll need to be prepared. We compiled a list of great items everyone should have in their beach bag (including some cool beach bags to get started) to ensure a fun-filled or relaxing stay down the shore.
