GREENSBORO, N.C. (WGHP) — This summer, quite a few families made a trip to the beach. 

While we often focus on the danger associated with getting into the ocean, not as many people are watching out for something else. 

A Greensboro man has made it his mission to develop a safer way to spend a day on the sand.  And his solution is Made in North Carolina.

Beach Bub umbrellas are now in stores along the coast from Florida to New Jersey. You can also find them on Amazon, or it’s easy to order through their website.

If you live in the Triad, you can stop by their factory outlet store at 561 Pegg Road in Greensboro.  They have a full line of styles, colors and accessories there.
