Heading to the beach? We can hardly blame you. A little sun and surf sound delightful, especially when the temperatures heat up, and your family is longing for some fun in the sun. Kids want to be active, and the beach is ideal for running free and playing around in the sand and water. The activity also brings up thirst and hunger, so always be prepared as the saying goes. Our vacation experts have a few interesting items for you to pack along with the towels, cooler, umbrella, Frisbee, kite, and that all-important SPF sunscreen.
