does anyone here use or have you seen people using wagons--not the Radio flyer types--
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 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...

We are from Chicago but live in Corpus Christi. When our children were young, we spent a few hours at the beach most weekends. We found the most useful item for carrying our cooler and water toys across the sand was a molded plastic snow sled we had brought with us from up north! I do not believe anything with wheels on it would be practical for use on the sand. The flat, molded plastic bottom of the sled worked perfectly!

Most of the wheeled units used on the beach at Padre Island for carting the things you mentioned are the family car, pickup, or SUV. We drive and park on our beaches here. No need for a wagon here.

There is a minimal annual fee for beach parking, you pay a small fee and get a Beach sticker for your car,,, simple.
