English Phone Booths
Throughout history, Aruba has been visited and conquered, by many different nations. One of them, was the British empire.
Instead of looking at it, as something bad, Aruba has decided to acknowledge, the different nations who conquered them, by mixing in some of their culture, with their own, especially here in Oranjestad.
A good example, is these English phone booths, like this one next to the Renaissance Shopping Center.
At first, I thought it was just there as decoration, for tourists to take pictures in, but I picked up the phone, and some lady started talking. It was an actual working phone booth.

Dutch Church Service
If you're in Aruba on a Sunday, it's worth the time to attend services at the Dutch Protestant Church (The Protestant Church Community of Aruba). The church itself was built in 1822, but the cultural aspect is that services are conducted (mainly) in Dutch, with an English translation insert in the program. Just keep in mind that the church has no air conditioning.
