Children tend to crave the "junk" we adults condemn, so they're likely to be enthralled by the rainy-day enticements of Route 28, which include trampolines, batting cages, pitch and putt, and bumper cars. Among the more enduringly appealing miniature golf courses clamoring for attention is Pirate's Cove, at 728 Main St./Rte. 28, South Yarmouth (tel. 508/394-6200;; daily 10am-10pm in season; closed Nov to mid-Apr), where the trap decor is strong on macabre humor and there are two 18-hole courses. A round is $8.50 for those 13 and older, $7.50 for children 12 and under.
