Nothing beats an ice-cold beverage while relaxing on the beach. Nothing is worse than reaching for an icy drink and finding your cans swimming. Coolers are essential for family days on the sand. A good modern cooler will keep food and drinks fresh for days. In addition to beverages, fishermen rely coolers to keep bait fresh, and hopefully the catch of the day. Walk onto any beach or pier in North or South Carolina and you’ll see a plethora of cooler models and sizes. Cooler technology has advanced rapidly in modern years. Top-end hard-sided coolers can keep ice frozen for a week. Soft coolers are easier for one person to carry onto a beach, but can still keep food cool for days. Cooler materials and price points vary wildly, so we put together this guide with our recommendations for your coastal vacation.

Recent Reviews from TripAdvisor
“Big Buck’s Ice Cream is definitely homemade, and delicious to boot! Even members in our family who aren’t ice cream fans loved this cold dairy treat. We came here two separate times during our week vacation to Corolla, Outer Banks, and wished we had gone every night in between.”
“Great Ice cream in the heart of TimBuck II shopping center. Stays open later then most of the other ice cream places in the area and it’s nice to get a scoop and walk around in the shops. Ice cream is a bit on the pricey side but overall pretty decent and generous with the portions. Highly recommended. Great Homemade Icecream!
“I am not really into ice cream, but when I walk in here I want to try it all! I ordered the frozen caramel cappuccino and it was amazing. they put whipped topping on and a white chocolate wafer. My girlfriend is in love with the frozen strawberry lemonade (dairy free) and she said it was the BEST lemonade she has ever had.”
“Big Buck’s has one of the best homemade ice creams I have ever tasted. My two favorites were the Banana Peanut Butter Swirl and the Peanut Butter and Cookies. Located in the Timbuk II shopping center it is a great place to visit after a long day of shopping or after eating atone of the restaurants located there.”
