These Beach Carts and Wagons Won't Drag in the Sand
Beach days are meant for fun in the sun coupled with relaxation for the whole family. To make the most of the time with your loved ones, round up some oceanside staples: a towel, umbrella, toys, chairs, and plenty of sunscreen and water. While using an oversized bag to carry all of these essentials can be helpful, you can make your stroll along the beach even easier by investing in a beach cart or wagon with sturdy wheels that won't drag in the sand. When shopping for your own cart, be sure to consider other features that will come in handy. If you want to bring refreshing drinks, look to a beach cart or wagon that's complete with a cooler to store your beverages. If you have small children, look to ride-on iterations that give your little ones a place to sit.
