One of the worst parts of going to the beach is the sand. Seriously! It just gets everywhere and it’s not fun. You can keep sand from ruining your otherwise enjoyable beach trip with the help of a blanket. But not any old blanket you stole off your guest bed. You need a blanket that’ll keep water and sand at bay and keep you feeling like you’re conquering Mother Nature. That’s where these beach blankets come in. And better yet, they’re all on Amazon.
