Now that school is out and summer is in full swing, it’s time to be prepared for the inevitable
summer beach trip — whether it’s planned or spontaneous. Having a few essentials in your car
and preparing your vehicle itself for a day at the beach will go a long way to ensure your family’s
comfort and safety, and your vehicle’s care and cleanliness.
Keep Your Family Safe & Comfortable
It’s always a good idea to leave a bottle of sunscreen in your car during the summer. Not
only will this help you be prepared for any unplanned time outside, but you’ll also have an extra
bottle on hand for your beach trip. There’s nothing worse than running out of sunscreen on the
beach! Be sure to store it in a plastic bag or container to avoid any unfortunate leaks.
Pack a cooler for snacks and fill it with the essentials for a day at the beach. Keeping snacks
in one place will make organization and clean up easy. Using a cooler will also make it easier to
haul snacks and drinks to and from the beach, both inside and outside of your car with ease.
Keep Your Car Clean
The worst thing about the beach is the mess that sand makes once you leave. Investing in a
decent set of rubber floor mats will make beach trip clean up that much easier because it will
keep much of the sand left on bare feet and sandals in once place.
Use plastic containers for storage of beach day essentials, like goggles, beach toys, extra
clothes to change into, and more. This will help you to avoid a mess of random items strewn
about your car on your way to or from the beach and will make it easier to find what you need.
