If the kids need a dry activity surprise them with a trip to Pirate’s Paradise Mini Golf Course just minutes away from the resort strip. Pirate’s Paradise offers a nice challenge with 18 holes and lush water features. The best time to visit is right after lunch and you can play multiple games from 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. for the price. Nighttime during tourist season is when Pirate’s gets super populated when it stays open until 2:00 a.m. (Have you ever hankered for a round of put-put golf at midnight? Me either, but in case the urge hits when you’re in Virginia Beach you’re good.)
Great photos ops thanks to the ay-matey decor and the waterfalls. Among other treats, the snack bar sells — an amusement park favorite — funnel cake.
