2 full days in Bermuda-

Looking to see where I should spend my second day...in St. George or The Dockyards? 4 girls in late 20's looking for shopping, good food, interesting sites, not big historians...

Thanks for your suggestions,
Karen

I'd go with St. George's. It is very picturesque and quaint, with a handful of cute little shops and a few restaurants to choose from. You can go with pub-style to gourmet. Also, it's only a 10 min. bus ride to the Crystal Caves if you'd like to go there and the Swizzle Inn Pub which is favourite of tourists and locals. It's just a short walk up the hill from Grotto Bay Resort. There are interesting things to see at the Dockyard - crafts, shops and a few restaurants, but I think you'll like the east end more.

I agree St. George's would be better, there's more to see and do. Not many dining choices at the dockyards, and shopping there is nothing spectacular. There's a main building with a string of "stall" type shops, but it's like being in a mall. Dockyards are interesting, but doesn't sound like you'd really be interested in the museum there. St. George's would be a better bet.

With only two days on the island, I would definitely visit St. George.

St. George is absolutely charming...and as I did last time we were there I wandered the side streets...As for shopping... Front Street has lost many of their shops, but you can take the new high speed ferry to the Dockyard. Of cours "sp" is right.. Swizzle Inn which is a bus ride away is wonderful for people watching during the day and fun, fun, fun at night and at the same time you can see the Crystal Caves and the Perfume Factory..

Didn't read it... we usually cruise there, but more and more planes are heading to Bermuda this year. What's the question?
