Get Close

If your beach trip involves a hotel or a house rental, book it right on the beach. Do not -- we repeat do not -- opt the cheaper place down the road. No matter how well you plan, you'll be walking back to your room several times for something you forgot to bring. (Or for that toy your kid has to have, right now!) It'll save you several thousand bouts of under-breath cursing.
