Headed out for the beach? Here are some fun beach travel tips I found.
Ideal Bite has some advice for "greening" your travel. About that tip on packing lighter? The folks at EcoSalon recommend packing smarter.
Travel Betty has this fantastic idea for a Comfort Bag to ease your flight (or train ride).
Go easy on the flip-flops. According to New York Times health blogger Tara Parker-Pope, flip-flops can lead to foot pain. They're great for padding across hot sand, but for a long stroll just go barefoot close to the shoreline.
Do cover up with a sun hat. You can find something floppy and unique at Etsy.
Vital Juice has some calorie-burning beach activities that are no work and all play.
Keep the beaches greener -- and healthier -- by using reusable swim diapers.
Whether you're at the pool or the beach, make sure your kids play safe around the water.
Healthy Living has tips for a better beach day. I especially like the tip on keeping hydrated! Chill some pretty Sigg bottles of water overnight for your day in the sun and then be sure to drink some more water once you return from the beach.
