Yesterday, I wrote about the surprising utility of clear backpacks at the beach. Considering it was my first time traveling in what feels like an eternity, expect a lot of beach-related content from me this week.
Today, I want to tell you about a product that seemed to be all over the Outer Banks: the beach tent. Pop-up beach tents have been around forever, but I left North Carolina with the impression that they are now more popular than ever. It is not hard to see why.
A beach canopy tent takes the all the benefits of a regular beach umbrella and increases their scale. It provides protection from the sun and wind. But being larger, it provides greater protection. Whereas beachgoers often have to deal with the threat of heavy winds blowing their umbrellas away, the beach tent is designed to stand up to the elements.
In proselytizing for beach tents, I would be remiss if I did not mention their greatest asset: Dogs love them. There were many dogs at the beaches of Corolla, including my own, and long exposure to the sun and heat was a problem. Many families with dogs were equipped with beach tents, allowing their dogs to step into the shade and rejuvenate before going back to hunting ghost crabs or sneaking mouthfuls of sand.
Why the sudden surge in popularity of beach tents? Perhaps it is added protection for all the pandemic puppies purchased during COVID. Whatever the reason, you may as well join the party and get one for yourself before you set out on your very own beach trip this summer.

2. Expersion Clear Tote Bag
Even if your vacation home is on the beach, you still need a method of carrying your towels, sunscreen, beverages and other accoutrements down closer to the ocean. Of course, you want something that is easy to clean since it is sure to be exposed to sand and water. A vinyl tote bag is a great solution, and this one from Expersion features an American flag patch. Like the Better Dweller beach umbrella, this tote bag is available on both Amazon and Walmart. Unlike the umbrella, it comes in a variety of colors, including blue, black, red, pink, green, and orange.

What is a backpack but a tote bag that is easier to carry and with more space? Not just for schools and sporting events, the Expersion clear backpack can also help you get your belongings down to seashore. It is also available on Amazon and Walmart.
Prepare For Summer With An American Flag Beach Umbrella
The East Coast is currently in the midst of a spate of unseasonable weather, marked by highs in the 60s today and tomorrow. After an extended cold period more typical of winter, it is impossible not to revel in the warmth and look ahead to the sunny days of spring and summer ahead.
The cabin fever this situation inspires has led many folks to begin planning their summer vacations. Whether we are talking about a day trip to the local beach or a farther trip down to the paradise marked by Florida palm trees, it is a good idea to book now before flight prices continue to increase as COVID ebbs. This also makes it a good time to shop for vacation essentials. I’m talking bathing suits, beach towels, coolers, things of that nature. I am also talking about one of the coolest new products available for the first time in 2022—the American flag beach umbrella.
Available on both Amazon and Walmart.com, the 6.5-ft beach umbrella from Better Dweller is a way to express both your individuality and patriotism as you catch some rays on the shore. For years, blue has been the dominant color for beach umbrellas, creating something of an eyesore for your supposedly pleasant getaway. At least for the time being, we are still free in this country. This gives us the chance to show how much we love it by setting up a beach item decked in the stars and stripes.
The Better Dweller beach umbrella is an imposing 6 and a half feet tall and approximately 6 feet wide, and will protect your food, your beverages, and even your dogs from the sun, and you can also move your own beach chair under it when you are ready for a bit of shade. It features a tilting mechanism, so you can create the perfect angle to ward off the sun when desired. And of course it is waterproof. Furthermore, it comes with a carrying case for easy storage and transportation to and from the beach.
