Summer in the Sunshine State means beach day fun! If you’re planning a trip to the shore, be sure to fuel up for the day with some hearty bar-b-q eats and sides that are sure to please the entire crew. Just read on for our tips on achieving the perfect excursion.
Pick your perfect beach spot
Florida is known for its endlessly beautiful shoreline, so where do you begin? New Smyrna Beach is a top spot for those who love to surf, with nearby Smyrna Dunes Park being a natural getaway where your four-legged friend can come along for the fun. Ormond Beach is another great spot for soaking up some sun while still staying safely spaced out on your beach blanket from other visitors!
Bring beach games and toys…
One simple beach bag can contain a day’s worth of fun for the whole family. A few of our go-to essentials include…
… and a trusty cooler, too
A sturdy cooler can keep your drinks cool—on a hot day at the beach, you’ll want plenty of H2O per person—and can double as a table for snacking or playing cards! Plus, stash a bottle of aloe vera gel for cool, soothing relief after your time in the sun.
Leave the food to us
As one of your go-to bar-b-q restaurants in Edgewater, Port Orange and the surrounding area, you’re never far from a Dustin’s Bar-B-Q on your way to the beach—so why not stop by and pick up some delicious eats for the beach? The breezy coastal air pairs perfectly with your favorite barbecue flavors—and whether you choose our Bar-B-Q Style Wings, Chicken Strips or a satisfying Sandwich, you can enjoy your day to the fullest with a bar-b-q meal minus the prep and cleanup.
Slather on the sunscreen
Remember your sunscreen—and then remember to reapply it regularly throughout the day so you can stay safe and comfortable under the sun!
Pack spare towels
You can never have too many towels at the beach. Bring along some extras so you have plenty for laying down on the sand, drying off after swimming and addressing quick cleanups if needed.
Craft your own beach day playlist
Set the perfect atmosphere with your own personal playlist! Your beach day playlist can include breezy island jams, summer throwback hits and whatever else helps transport you to your favorite beach day, relaxing mindset. Bring along a small, waterproof Bluetooth speaker for effortless jams all afternoon long.
Your perfect beach day is just a quick trip—and a fuel-up stop at Dustin’s Bar-B-Q—away! We can’t wait to see you soon as you embark upon your summer adventures.
