We are lucky enough to live in an area where there are multiple choices when planning a get-together around water; however, when planing a water themed party for adults or children, would you rather be at the river, the beach, or the pool? There are positives and negatives to each. If you Want sand, then mark out the pool. If you want to be able to see what’s in the water, then mark out the river and the beach. Worried about flesh eating bacteria or sea creatures? Stay away from the Beach. River sand bars that aren’t privately owned are becoming more and more scarce so the ones you do find could be crowded, loud, and possibly filled with folks looking for confrontation.
