Summer is in full swing. It’s hot, it’s humid and the best place to take a cool dip and relax (as long as the kids aren’t trying to eat sand) is at the beach. If you’re used to toting your favorite ecig or vape wherever you go, you’ll likely have the desire to bring it along with you.
Vaping has made its way into everyday life, but as we move ahead with new technology, the waters are still uncharted and new restrictions are popping up. Ecigs are getting excluded from more and more locations, like National Parks, and airplanes, and it is important to do a little research before you head out.
So, the question arises, can you vape at the beach?
The safest answer is to always check with your local municipalities to see if there are any restrictions, just to be sure. Check the city’s webpage to know before you go.
You may also see signs prohibiting use posted when you arrive at your destination, so be sure to check your surroundings before using your vape. Many areas will post signs at the entrance to the beach park, so keep an eye out.
If your beach does allow vaping here are some guidelines:
Be careful with your battery—don’t let it overheat. Keep your vape and its accessories out of direct sunlight.
Keep your vape off the sand—sand can be hard to completely shake out of a towel, imagine how difficult it could be to clean it out of your vape. Your best bet is to try and keep it off any sandy surface and tucked away in a carrying case.
Be considerate of those around you—people come to the beach to relax and enjoy some time with friends and family. If you are in a crowded spot, be mindful of your vape aroma and find an area that won’t waft into someone’s tanning time.Check ahead—the Best Cities for Vaping is a useful guide of the most vape friendly areas throughout the country.
