Going to the beach is a blast … but getting there? Not so much.

We took a look at beach wagons and chose our favorites. Trust us, after a day spent jumping the waves and building sandcastles, you’ll be thankful for the extra help.

Schwinn 4×4 Quad Steer Woody Wagon Vehicle, Teal

How cute would the kids look in this? This adorable wagon comes in the traditional red that you grew up and this fresh, modern teal blue. It even has the “woody” paneling on the side to lend a retro feel. This wagon is great for parents who don’t have far to walk, and who have a ramp to the beach.

Rio Brands Wonder Wheeler Plus Beach Cart

This beach cart is designed for hauling gear. Think foldable beach chairs, umbrellas, bags and small floats. It’s like the clown car of beach wagons. You’ll be amazed how much you can fit in this thing. It even folds flat once it’s empty and has mesh fabric so sand slides right out.

Sandusky Light-Duty Folding Wagon with Solid Steel Frame,

See those huge tires? Those are your best friends once you hit the soft sand. Load up this wagon with gear, chairs and floats and fold it up when not in use. This would work best with ramped beach access (unless you have help to carry it) because as great as the wheels are on the sand, they can be a little bulky if you try to pick it up.

Mac Sports All-Terrain Wagon with Folding Table in Blue

Seasoned beach goers will be impressed with this little cart. Its wheels work on soft sand and you can load it down with coolers, umbrellas, gear and anything else you need for a fun day at the beach + it has built-in cup holders! Who doesn’t love a cup holder?
