With all the fuss about organizing a vacation, who has the time to think about outdoor beach chairs? Not everyone does, but everyone should for one simple reason: the beach chair is basically the spot you first stretch your limbs at after getting done with the stressful part. Its’s frustrating enough to book the best rooms and the cheapest flight, why would you want to worry about the little things too?
While it’s advised that you don’t sweat the small things, chairs and outdoor beach umbrellas should be somewhere on your to-do list. You can buy them. It’s the best solution financially, if you travel by car and have a spacious backyard where you like to sit down with a cocktail. In case you decide to check the supermarket please be warned that not all of the chairs are of the same build quality.
Some of them are outright rubbish when it comes to sturdiness. Without going completely overboard on the functions you can easily ramp up the price by just saying you need a good chair. Most of them are to be avoided if you mind falling on the ground at all. The price should be a rule of thumb, but don’t think that by looking at the price alone you’ll be able to find the right piece of equipment.
Online reviews help a lot to spot the duds, but they are not the be all end all solutions either. Go by the gut instinct and don’t buy things that look inferior in any way. You’re spending money, and not a small amount either. When renting the chairs, you can simply walk in at the first rental store near the beach and point at one. It will be just as good as any. For the money you’re to pay for the day at least it will be.
Admittedly, the beach umbrella and the chair you’ll be sitting on are not amongst the most important things to think about when organizing a vacation. They’re not even in the second line when it comes to details, but eventually you’ll have to think about them to ensure your day isn’t ruined by the small stuff. There’s nothing like the joy of sitting on the shore as the waves lap gently on your toes.
