How To Make the Most of the Summer's Last Beach Day
- Parrothead Party Life
As summer winds down, the sun sets a little earlier, the thermometer reads a little lower and there are fewer beach days left for you to enjoy the warm sand between your toes. However, if autumn isn't here just yet, you still have time to get in a last beach visit or two.
Here are a few tips to make the most out of your last beach days of the summer.
Get To The Beach Early
Many people don't get to the beach until the early afternoon during the summer, but as the summer wanes, it's important to get there in the morning. The earlier that you get to the beach, the more sunlight and warm weather you're likely to get. Plus, getting there early will let you stay at the beach as long as possible.
In the middle of summer, you may be more than happy to just lie in the sun and go for the occasional dip. But, at the end of summer, often the air and water feel a little bit cooler. It's a great idea to bring a book, a magazine or some games. Consider bringing beach games that you can play with other beach-goers and a drink in your hand.
Pick the Right Drinks
It's the end of beach season, but you can drink like it's just beginning. Focus on blending drinks in your frozen concoction maker that you'd want to have on a tropical beach. Bring along pre-blended margaritas, daiquiris and other alcoholic slushes in your cooler.
Pack Plenty of Warm Clothes
You're going to want to make the most of the beach season, so you'll likely stay later than normal. Make sure you bring a sweatshirt, sweatpants and blankets to keep yourself warm while you relax and watch the surf in the cool, late-summer dusk.
Invite Your Fellow Parrotheads
Parrotheads love beaches and everything tropical. The last beach day of the summer is an event, so make sure you invite a few other people who will really appreciate it. Turn your beach trip into an impromptu party. Bring along some snacks, a small grill and, of course, a margarita maker.
Your fellow Parrotheads at Margaritaville® Cargo remind you to enjoy your frozen concoctions responsibly and obey all drinking laws.
