Origin of the name L G Smith Blvd

by jeana-r

Hi, Can anyone please tell me who "L G Smith Blvd" was named after? I get this question many many times on my travels to Aruba.

Many thanks.

Re: Origin of the name L G Smith Blvd

by dustmon

looked it up via Bing and saw that Lloyd Gaston Smith was born May 27, 1891 and was sent to Aruba from the states to select a site for the Aruba Refinery/Lago Oil Co. Lots of personal info there if you want more info.....

Travel Tips for Oranjestad

Wilhelmina Park.

by Arubasun.

Oranjestad Wilhelmina park is very well kept it is an oasis of green in the city downtown core. The park was named after the beloved Queen Wilhelmina of The Netherlands and her statue could be seen in the park.

Wilhelmina park is a peaceful place, you would see a few people jogging, some children playing and other just reading or talking in a peaceful environment.

The park is located near the Aruba Rennaissance Suites in downtown.

Be Prepared for Rain!

by Electrcrio

Although it is said that it "never rains in Aruba" more and more people that I know that have been there (including when I was there) experienced terrible rain storms. So be prepared and pack that umbrella just in case!

The renaissance of a Caribbean city.

by Arubasun.

Oranjestad (Oranje=Orange, stad=city) was named after the last name of the Royal Dutch Family (van Oranje). Oranjestad is the bustling capital of Aruba.

Home to only 20,000 people, Oranjestad is Aruba's main city home to the political, economic and cultural might of the island.

The city of Oranjestad was founded in 1824 by the Dutch near Paardenbaai (Bay of horses). At that time the capital of Aruba was Savaneta located in the South Central section of the island. Oranjestad took over the title of capital due to its harbour potential. More commerce and businesses eventually concentrated in that area of the island.

Today Oranjestad is a busy booming town. It is a city that profited a lot from Aruba's 15 year economic growth. The Oranjestad of today has its own character, new buildings have a mixture of Latin, Aruban, American but predominantly Dutch architecture.

The city is also quiet lively at night. As a matter of fact Oranjestad was voted in 2002 for the second consecutive year as the Caribbean's best small town nightlife city by the readers of Travel & Life Magazine.

Oranjestad is a true success story of a sleepy Caribbean town converted into a bustling cosmopolitan city within only 15 years. Certainly in the last 10 years Oranjestad has become a destination within the destination Aruba, and is one of the Caribbean's most photogenic cities.

"The bustling city."

Oranjestad has a mixture of architecture dominated by a Dutch, Spanish Caribbean tatste, though there are a few touches of American and French architecture.

Oranjestad is lively at day and also at night and is voted for the second consecutive year in 2002 as having the Caribbean's best small city nightlife.

"Plaza Daniel Leo."

Plaza Daniel Leo is the most beautiful square on the island located just in the heart of Oranjestad and the shopping area of the city. The plaza is surrouned by photogenic commercial buildings and there are at times live music activities on the square.
