Who needs the ocean? Create a beach barbecue party around your pool or hot tub. Kick back in flip-flops and swimsuits. Use the children’s sandbox to build a sand castle. Decorate tables with seashells and fish nets. Cover chairs with beach towels. Use plastic pails and shovels, and even frisbees, to serve hors d’oeuvres and drinks. Float toy sailboats in the pool. Grill hot dogs, hamburgers and corn on the cob and serve classic boardwalk food, like popcorn, snow cones and french fries. Or go all out with a clam bake, oyster roast or lobster feast!
