Stock Your Westchester Beach Bag With These Essentials

Trekking to the shore or beyond, these essentials are a must-pack for a rewarding day by the water.

There can be a panicked frenzy when packing for a shore day that goes one of two ways: being grossly underprepared or having far too much to lug from the car to the sand (and having a blender with you, for whatever reason). These products are the happy medium — everything from sun protection to keeping your drinks cold and your mind at ease. You can find these must haves in our beach bag when the mercury spikes.
