If you didn’t get to go away to a tropical paradise over spring break, now is your chance for summer romance without buying a plane ticket. Bring that special someone to Mulligan’s Island, a golf and entertainment center in Cranston, Rhode Island. The 64-acre complex includes two 18-hole adventure mini-golf courses, a full 10-station batting cage, driving range and more. Since its opening in 2002, it has been the recipient of several awards such as Best New Range, and was named one of the top 100 golf ranges in America from 2003 to 2014.
The entire complex was designed with tropical destinations in mind, and the mini-golf courses make players feel like they’ve stepped onto a volcanic island. The courses include a wrecked pirate ship and a real volcano that spews cool water and a 25 foot fireball shooting from the top.
To really feel that beachy vibe, play a game of beach volleyball on one of two sand courts, and stop by the tiki hut, a snack truck with cold drinks, ice cream and more summer delights.
Mulligan’s Island may be the cheapest romantic vacation you’ll ever go on. A game of mini-golf is only $11 per person, and tiki hut snacks are not too pricey. Both your date and wallet will thank you after an inexpensive day of summer love.
