The beach is a great place to be but a hard place to get to. If you hate trekking through the sand with two chairs hanging off your back, a cooler in one hand, and a stuffed tote bag in the other, then a beach wagon should be at the top of your shopping list. The best heavy-duty wagons, on average, should carry around 200 pounds of gear, roll (not drag) through soft sand, and make setting up on the shore a breeze. With one of these, the summer relaxation starts the second you step on the sand, no huffing and puffing required.
Ahead, check out eight of the best, time-saving beach wagons currently up for grabs on the web. Summer's far from over and those walks down to the ocean aren't getting any shorter — add one of these wagons to your cart and keep your beach trips chill just as your PTO time intended.
