Top 5 Reasons Why You Need a Bermuda Vacation
Bermuda is a beautiful island that is located about six hundred miles away from North Carolina. It is famed for pink coloured sandy shores, fascinating light colour buildings in Hamilton and flawlessly trimmed golf courses. Some of its traditions like afternoon tea and cricket matches are inspired from the British and they are also the cause of its fame. By visiting Bermuda, one feels like going back to courteous period. Except its traditions, the island has been modernized by making new restaurants and elegant resorts. So if you want to go to a chill place for vacations, then you can add Bermuda to your list.
The reasons that you should choose Bermuda for vacations are:
New York is a famous city to depart from, while flying to Bermuda. From April, a flight will be launched every day from New York to Bermuda. According to local time, the flight departure time will be from 9:55 a.m. to 1 p.m. A direct taxi ride is available from there to various resorts at the shorefronts. You can enjoy there by relaxing in the sun and drinking the island’s National drink, known as “Dark ‘n Stormy”.
The Fairmont Hamilton Princess
The island became more famous when the expansive pink coloured hotel “Fairmount Hamilton Princess” built in 1885, was bought by Bermudian named Peter Green. Its name was taken from the daughter of Queen, the “Princess Louise”. Due to ex-guests like Mark Twain and Ian Fleming, this hotel has been the centre of social activities in Hamilton. Peter Green has planned to renew it very soon.
