Find a spot, park it, and enjoy the day...as long as you follow these rules!

Ah, the beach, probably the most rewarding part of summer — nothing feels better than hearing the roll of the waves and feeling the heat on your skin.

Here are the Rules for Eating at the Beach!

Here’s the thing about the beach, though — you’re not really going to get the whole experience (as in a tan and a nice relaxing afternoon) if you don’t stay there for a couple of hours. And during that time, you’re likely to eat something, especially if you’re with your family.

When heading to the beach with kids, it’s important to be mindful of how to pack a cooler full of snacks and treats and even more important, how to enjoy it properly without a seagull claiming your sandwich for itself.

We’re doling out a few guidelines on how to enjoy a meal on the beach solo, with your pals, or with your family. A beach day is supposed to be a great day, so follow these and you’ll be all set. And don't forget to wear sunblock — no one likes looking like a lobster.
