If you're like most people, going to the beach sounds like an extra-fun way to spend the day — until you get there and realize that you didn't pack everything you need. So then you wander from store to store, looking for an elusive bottle of sunscreen that costs less than $1,000. You finally find it and get settled on the beach, only to realize that the sun's beating down on your face and you're going to spend the next five hours squinting because you didn't think about bringing an umbrella. Ugh, and now you have to find a place to store your wallet and jewelry while you run down to the shore. Oh, and as for the water? Surprise, it's freezing, and now you really wish you'd brought a game or two to pass the time.
But things definitely don't need to be this frustrating. The trick to a joyful day at the beach — as long as the weather is in your favor, of course — comes down to choosing the right company and packing a beach-ready go bag filled with everything you need. So here's the plan: you assemble your crew, and we'll assemble the optimal beach bag with items from Bed Bath & Beyond. All you'll need to add is your swimsuit and a good attitude. Ready, set, scroll!
