Over the years, we've perfected the beach gear that deserves room in our car trunk for the road trip. You can see our list of what to pack for a road trip here.
Our focus is on budget-friendly, reliable, and well made pieces that we can use over and over again every summer.
In my list of essential beach gear, I'll share which items are worth an investment for the long run and which ones you can find more budget friendly prices.
If you are a member of Costco, you can find some of the items at a discount at a local warehouse here in the southeastern coastal cities.
