Your Ultimate Summer Pool Bag Essentials at McCauly Crossing

Soak up the sun and take a refreshing dip in our brilliant pool this summer at our West Chester apartments. Whether it’s a quick splash or a leisurely day by the water, being well-prepared is key. Ensure you have all you need with our guide to packing the ultimate pool bag this season at McCauly Crossing.


Water-Resistant Carrying Gear

A top-notch pool bag begins with the bag itself. Opt for a waterproof option like a mesh or utility tote to keep your belongings dry. For sensitive items such as smartphones, electronic keys, or wallets, utilize Ziploc bags for an extra layer of protection against water.


Towels and Change of Clothes

Never underestimate the value of extra towels; pack one per person and add a few spare ones just in case. Consider a larger beach towel for lounging on the grass when pool chairs are scarce. And if your plans extend beyond pool time, include a set of dry clothes for a quick change.


Sun Care Essentials

Sun protection is paramount. Select a sunscreen with a suitable SPF that’s also water-resistant, minimizing the need for frequent applications. Add a lip balm with SPF to protect your lips and don’t forget a hat and sunglasses for added shade. Post-sun, a nourishing aloe or after-sun cream will help soothe and hydrate your skin.


Hydration and Snacks

Staying hydrated is crucial when you’re out in the sun. Bring along ample water or electrolyte-infused beverages to quench that inevitable thirst. Pack nutritious snacks such as trail mix, fresh fruit, or other energizing bites to sustain your energy through every swim and sunbathing session.


Entertainment and Accessories

To fully enjoy your poolside experience, remember the fun extras. Earphones, a good book, pool toys, goggles, or an iPad can all enhance your relaxation and entertainment during those poolside moments.


At our West Chester apartments, the summer pool scene is an unbeatable delight. With the right pool bag prepped, you’ll have effortless access to comfort, entertainment, and hydration all day long. Visit McCauly Crossing and discover our beautiful community today.
