A quaint town with historical sights as well as charming walks and views of the island's eastern coastline. A visit to The World Heritage Center is well worth the small fee which includes a historical informative film and display of our town. St.George's has forts, beaches small shops, pharmacy, churches, museums and The Bermuda Perfumery with a free tour! There are re-enactments and free walking tours in the town square twice weekly on Wednesday and Saturday and most days during the summer months. St.George's is full of charm and history as this was our original capital city and the walking tours are wonderful and full of

interesting facts about our town.

The waters of the harbor and the ocean are crystal clear, blue and aqua. Jet skis , canoes, sail boats are all for hire to help you explore the area.

You might want to take a glass bottom boat tour, or sail on a catamaran.

There is excellent snorkelling at nearby Tobacco Bay, and for divers Bermuda boasts some of the world's best wreck diving if you want more than fish.

Crystal Caves , which are close by, are open to the public, but there are other caves to explore which are not commercial.

If you enjoy walking, the old railway trail, a grassy path, takes you along low cliffs at the ocean's edge, and there are beach walks aplenty.

Explore some of the many forts around St. George, in a variety of designs they date from the 1600's to World War !!. Fort St. Catherine has excellent displays which are well worth the visit.

St. Peter's church, (now 'Their Majesties Chappelle' by Royal decree of H.M. Queen Elizabeth 11) is the oldest Anglican church in the Western Hemisphere, and has occupied the same spot since 1609.It is a lovely old church with Bermuda cedar beams and furnishings, and plain glass windows which give it a very different 'feel' to most churches.

From the waterfront a ferry takes a scenic route Hamilton, the capital, and to the Royal Naval Dockyard in the west of the island. Hamilton has shopping, a fine Art Gallery, the Cathedral, and Fort Hamilton overlooking the town.

The Dockyard holds the National Museum, shops restaurants and a glass blowers, among many other attractions.

St. George and Bermuda have much to offer a vacationer, whether you want to be active or stay quietly on a beach under an umbrella.
