A lot to see and do here, with a bunch of souvenir shops and eateries, a nice museum, snorkel tours and you can swim with dolphins. That's expensive, but you can watch for free....

If you are a fan of local history, you’ll love the Commissioner’s House! Be warned though- it contains so much information and artifacts you may need two days to thoroughly comb through it. On day one, we did a few hours of the out buildings,...More

It is nice for a casual day of strolling around, checking out the museum & few shops, and eating (enjoying a band maybe). You can also participate in the dolphin experience.

We are on a cruise and docking for 3 days in Bermuda, is it worth renting a car and touring on our own?
