SUMMER TIME: BEACHES & BOOZE
The gyms across america are packed, the parks are full of people running, and the yoga classes seem a bit fuller......ahhhhh, summer is upon us once again. A staple of the summer fun is always a trip to the beach. But how much fun you have at the beach is determined by what you do prior to getting there. Preparation is key. Here are a few tips to make your beach day a blast.
Thanks to the power of the internet there are so many options for finding what you need at a reasonable price. Having a cool tent not only provides a place for shade, but it's a central gathering place for your friends to lay back after running around in the water, and for the bachelors, it's a welcoming hut to the ladies you just met. While everybody else is overpaying for umbrellas you rent per hour, you can be like, "hey, why don't you kick it in our tent"?
BE THE COOLEST:
I remember the struggle of lugging beach chairs, your radio, toys, etc. through the heavy sand to get set up before you can finally relax. But technology continues to make things easier. I mean seriously people, it's a cooler with a damn radio in it. #beaboss
DRINK BUT THINK:
Most beaches ban alcoholic beverages, but let's be honest, nobody is abiding by that law. But don't be the ones trying to sneak out your alcohol bottles on the beach just to get caught. Make your drinks before you leave!!! Extra important, mix your drinks with sports drinks, because while you wanna get a good buzz, the sun is up there beating you up and you need to stay hydrated.
The beach itself is beautiful, but why not make it more fun with activities. It's also a good way to break the ice with strangers and make some friends!
Hope these tips help you out, don't forget sunscreen... See you on the sand.
