Hey everyone, it’s Adelle from over at Packed with Fun, the official blog for Get Away Today. Memorial Day marks the beginning of everything related to summer fun in our house. And what is summer without a beach vacation? We are huge beach fans and make it a point to get to the ocean at least once a year. We also frequent local lakes, reservoirs and dams any chance we get when we’re home. We love the combination of sun and sand! With all of our trips to the beach, we’ve come up with some tips, tricks and activities to make our beach vacations pretty great. So, in honor of summer and beaches across the globe, I wanted to share our beach vacation activity roundup – I hope it inspires some great beach vacations for your family this summer:
First things first, I put together our five ways to make the beach better with my safety tips and beach day hacks.
Next, whenever our family is missing the beach, we like to create some beach magic at home with some tasty treats. Check out my beach inspired cupcake and pina colada smoothie recipes.
I also came up with three fun ways to make your beach towel better. Think games, sun cover up and a beach tote.
One of my favorite beach creations is the easy DIY beach tent. It’s perfect to keep little ones out of the sun and makes it easy to find your spot on the beach.
Next, my girls are obsessed with mermaids. So, I came up with these cute tails. Now we always spot mermaids at the beach!
You can’t put together a beach vacation activity roundup without information on one of my favorite beaches to visit, Mission Bay? San Diego is one of Get Away Today’s most popular vacation destinations and Mission Bay is the place to play. Check out all of the fun your family can have.
Before we hit the beach, I like to make sure I’m beach ready from head-to-toe. For me, that means glitter toes! With so many girl toes at our house, it’s not practical to get them done at a salon. I figured out how to do them at home so we all have fancy feet.
And finally, once your beach vacation is on the books, you can get your family excited with this easy sand zen garden beach vacation countdown! You can also use it when you return from your vacation to remember all of the fun you had together.
