    Favorite thing: If you arrive in Basseterre by ship, you can't miss the welcome center. In fact, to get from the ship to the town you will have to pass through it. Here you will find friendly helpful people, an information desk, restrooms, taxis, tour buses, and brochures telling about the island's attractions, history, etc.

    British Heritage

    Karen in a St. Kitts British Style Telephone Booth

    Favorite thing: St. Kitts was ruled by Great Britain for more than 200 years, and visitors to the island will see many reminders of that heritage in the architecture, place names, and more, including this telephone booth at Independence Square, and others like it elsewhere in the city, such as at The Circus. In these photos Karen is actually using her Cincinnati Bell cell phone, and was able to call her daughters back in Ohio and New York, without charge.

    English is the official language, and many locals speak it with a British accent.

    The Circus Plaza

    The Circus Plaza, Basseterre, St. Kitts

    Favorite thing: The Circus Plaza which forms the hub of the town of Basseterre, was intended to be a miniature version of London's famous Piccadilly Circus. At the center of the plaza, is the Berkeley Memorial Clock and Drinking Fountain, neither of which was in working order at the time of our visit. Surrounding the circle are several shops which appeal to tourists and locals alike. If you stand in the middle of the street to take a picture you may get run over, as I almost did.
