day at the beach

While we may be closer to the end of summer than the beginning, there’s still plenty of time for a trip to the beach.

Here’s a quick guide to keeping your fun in the sun "Made in America."

  • Transport your snacks in a cooler from Conyers, GA-based Softcoolers. They promise a lifetime warranty on their American-made coolers.
  • Protect your skin with Badger sunscreen made in Gilsum, NH. The sunscreen is certified organic and in 2010 was named, by the Environmental Working Group, as among the best sunscreens.
  • Get comfortable in a beach chair from the Cape Cod Beach Chair Company, which manufactures its chairs in, you guessed it, Cape Cod, MA.
  • Make it shady wherever you are with a beach umbrella from Myrtle Beach, SC-based Lack’s Outdoor Furniture. And, if Myrtle Beach happens to be where you are, you can take a tour of Lack’s factory and see the umbrellas being manufactured.
  • Dry off with a beach towel from American Apparel, which are made in Morehead, KY.
  • And finally, stow all your stuff in an American-made beach bag from Tuscumbia, AL-based Carter & Co.
