Must-Have Items to Pack for the Beach in Your New Ford

2005 Ford Mustang ConvertibleThere is nothing more classic than a great trip to the beach in a car full of friends packed with everything you need to have a perfect day in the waves. This year, check out some of the gorgeous nearby beaches, and get ready to have a relaxing and fun-filled trip. For those seeking a quieter beach getaway look no further than the beaches in Chesapeake Bay. Pack up your Ford with these beach essentials and hit the sand at any one of the beautiful Virginia beaches this season.

Beach Refreshments

When getting ready for the beach, have no worries that your new Ford will have enough room to take any snacks and drinks you need to get the most out of your beach trip. Remember to pack plenty of water, as well as sandwiches, chips, fruits, and a surprise treat like cookies. Even though your cooler is jam-packed, you’ll still have plenty of space in your efficient and roomy Ford, especially if it’s an Escape. Pop open the back and lay down some blankets for a quick beach picnic, and enjoy the Virginia beaches like never before.

Beach Entertainment

As one of the most relaxing beaches on the East coast, the Chesapeake Bay area beaches are one of the best places to enjoy quiet activities. Packing a bag of books and magazines can make sure you get in some good reading time in between ocean swims and sun naps. Some might even enjoy bringing along a small radio for a little light music to accompany the gentle sounds of waves and seagulls. For those with less to pack, the 2015 Ford Fiesta is just the perfect mix of functionality and economy to make every trip effortless.

Beach Toys

For those with children, there is no end to the amount of toys to be carried to the beach. From sand buckets and shovels, to goggles and swim shoes, boogie boards, Frisbees, volleyballs, and more, families must have a way to get everything to the beach in one trip. With enough room for all the fun plus all the family, Ford offers several SUVs with the space to take on a perfect beach trip. So relax knowing everyone gets to take their own toys to play with; no more fighting over who gets to take what.

Beach Necessities

There are some things that are just impossible to leave home without. When packing up for a beach trip, always remember to pack beach chairs, suntan lotion, sunglasses, umbrellas, towels, and floaties for the kids. Fit everything you need and more inside your Ford, parked right next to you on the sand. While you’re sitting back with everything you need to enjoy an ideal day at the beach, take some time to read your new owner’s manual for your brand new Ford.

Even after packing up all the food, toys, and entertainment you could possibly need for your day at the beach, relax knowing there’s still room for the entire family, including the dog, in your new 2015 Ford. For the biggest selection of beautiful brand new and certified pre-owned Fords in the Virginia Beach area, stop in to Cavalier Ford Lincoln – you’ll find the best fit for you and the family.
