does anyone here use or have you seen people using wagons--not the smaller Radio flyer types--although that would be interesting to know for comparison--on the beach to carry kids and other stuff...

my daughter lives near Gulf in FL and thought about getting them a folding pull-able wagon that has large tires and a metal frame covered by canvas/poly material to use for carting stuff around the beach...
but am not sure if it is really that practical...

has pretty big wheels, a long handle so you don't hit your heels pulling it, is about 40-42 inches long so it would hold 2-3 kids and/or coolers and other stuff...and it folds up

one version folds long-wise like a big stroller and has a case and the other one folds more flat-wise with a case so it would probably be easier to store in a car's trunk if you did not have lot of room...

any insight appreciated--they go to the beach alot by themselves and with friends
they don't have kids yet--but they have friends who come visit them from out of state who do and it is hard for them to bring lots of equipment on the plane...

Similar carts are popular with the surf fishing crowd, but they're not usually supporting the weight of 2 - 3 kids. In many places, the sand above the high tide line is pretty soft. That much weight may be hard to pull along. Also, many of the beach accesses have quite a few steps to climb and descend as they bridge over the dunes. That could be a challenge. Sounds like a nice gift if their beach access accommodates the cart.

I think I know which cart you're talking about and they sell them on several sites. Here is one: Wheeleez Carts, Roleez Carts, Beach Carts, Beach Gear, Beach Chairs and Gear (http://www.beachystreet.com/carts.htm - broken link) it's probably the one on the bottom left.
