Most Fun While Christmas Shopping

If you’re looking to combine holiday shopping with family-friendly activities, The Shops At Hilltop offers plenty of entertainment. One of the center’s most loved traditions, dating back thirty-six years, is the horse-drawn carriage rides, recently featured on WTKR News Channel 03 morning show “Coast Live.”  Year after year, dressed in full holiday trim, these carriages are filled with families and friends wanting to experience the joy of simpler times. Two carriages will be running every weekend starting Friday & Saturday, November 25-26, 2022, and continuing through December 18, 2022.  Board the rides 11/25-26 and 12/03 in Hilltop North near Verizon and Kitchen Barn.  Board the rides 12/3, 12/10, 12/17 and 12/18 in Hilltop East, near TASTE.

Special care is being taken to provide a safe, sanitized ride to everyone choosing to board. Carriages will be wiped down between each usage, with each ride restricted to one family or group riding together.

Families may also enjoy visits with strolling Santa, who will treat each child to a free gift! In addition, the Doorway Singers will carol for the holiday accapella Sat., 12/03 and 12/07, noon to 3 p.m.

All entertainment is free and open to the public. The shopping center is located at 1544 Laskin Road, at the northeast corner of Laskin and First Colonial Roads, Virginia Beach.  For more information, visit;; or https://instagram/theshopsathilltop
