Ocean Breeze Water Park...
for Less!

Water, water, everywhere! And what a blast! The Ocean Breeze Water Park is the hottest (or coolest, depending on how you look at it) place to go in Virginia Beach.

Just 1.5 miles from the waterfront, it's the only water park in Virginia Beach. So what's it like? How does 16 water slides, a 1 million-gallon Runaway Bay wave pool, a Buccaneer Bay children's area, West Indies BBQ, Island Trader Gift Shop, and Shipwreck Island Arcade sound?

Look below for a $4 off coupon and tips for saving up to $9 per ticket...

Our fave spot: the Runaway Bay Wave Pool, which generates boogie-board worthy waves from time to time. When you hear Queen's "We Will Rock You" you'd better run to the Wave Pool--that means they're about to start making waves.

There's pirates at more at Virginia Beach's Ocean Breeze Water Park.

A few tips:

  • Don't forget the sunblock!
  • Be prepared for a workout! You have to climb lots of stairs to reach the slides on most of the rides.
  • Although you could probably take a chance and just leave your clothes on a chair (not money, of course) they offer convenient lockers where you can stash your stuff all day. Lockers are $7 for the day, but you get back $2 after you return the key, so they really only cost $5. We were able to stuff four people's worth of stuff into one locker. The keys are strung on elastic bands that you can wear safely on your arm.
  • For little ones and those who are a little unsure of their swimming ability, they offer life vests. Kids rides include a fun Pirate Ship, so there's something for the whole family.
  • Pass on the inner tube rental. It costs $7 for a two-person inner tube, but since you can only use it in the Wave Pool, it's not really worth it.

  3. Three Things I'll Do Next Time I Fly

    Jul 20, 14 09:40 PM

    After flying to 40 countries I thought I'd learned it all about air travel. But as I sat on the plane last night returning from a trip to the West coast I suddenly realized three things I'll do next time I fly. 1) Bring bleach wipes: Yep, I'd brought Wet Wipes to clean off my seat area, having learned long ago that airplane seat armrests, tray tables, and seat pockets are teeming with bacteria. But after all the funky germs we keep hearing about in the news (e.g., MRSA) and sitting there thinking how many people had probably touched that seat area since the last good scrubbing, I wish I'd brought bleach wipes. Next time.
    2) Bring a little vial of "odor protector": Can't believe this has never happened to me before, but the guy next to me absolutely reeked of mold, having obviously left his clothes in the washing machine for a week. How'd you like to sit next to that for five hours? My sister-in-law likes to travel with a dab of peppermint oil or a little Vicks Vapor rub under her nose when she flies. Now I know why. So next time, I'm bringing a little vial of my favorite perfume as a little odor defense if I need it.
    3) Fly Virgin: One word comes to mind after flying Virgin America for the first time. "Wow." Just "wow." They make flying fun again! Everything, from the music they play at check-in, to the friendly staff and flight attendants (who all seem to love their jobs compared to staff on other airlines who often seem basically fed-up and sometimes curt) to their hilarious and brilliant safety video, to the fact that my luggage was waiting for me in Baggage Check BEFORE I even got down there, they made me a Virgin believer!
