They are Pink and Blue!! Even though we did not use the bus to travel to Hamilton, it is very obvious that many people, both locals and tourists, do.There is a fairly...

  • Bermuda Aquarium, Museum & Zoo (BAMZ)

    Flatt's Village Things to Do

    I went to the aquarium the first time I came to Bermuda, and we went back in 1995 and again in 2004. This is one good way to see native animals and sea life. The aquarium is right on multiple bus routes (either the 10 or 11 from Hamilton) and after you visit, you can continue on to St. George.Open daily, except Christmas Day, 9 am to 5 pm. Last...

    Flatt's Village Things to Do

    The Museum of the Bermuda Aquarium Museum and Zoo was just added recently. I hadn't seen it before. It was very interesting and had displays on how the coral rock was quarried and how roof tiles are made from it, the blight that killed the Bermuda cedar and the introduction of invasive species are crowding out the native and endemic plants and...

    Flatt's Village Local Customs

    If you ride the local buses around 3-4 o'clock, you will see that Bermuda uses these buses as school buses. Some runs are only for school children (who wear uniforms) but most are just regular buses.Almost every time we've stopped in Flatts Village, we've seen school kids getting on the bus.I was amused to see that the kids at one stop were larking...

    We went to Spittal Pond for the 1 pm Friday tour. We saw Jeffrey's Hole, a cave named for an escaped slave who supposedly hid out here for several weeks with his girl friend bringing him food.

    Saint George's Island Things to Do

    Just a short hike over the hill from the center of town. Bring your swimsuit and snorkel mask. I was here in november and the consession stand was closed and there was no lifeguard ( I did not need either). Summertime may be different. Well protected lagoon and clear water.

    Although there are several docks for cruise ships, there's only one airport. So if you are coming by plane, you will be coming in to BDA which is 560 miles east of Cape Hattaras. The airport can support aircraft of all sizes up to and including the A380

    The first facility was built between 1941 and 1943 as a joint US Army Air Forces (USAAF)/Royal Air Force (RAF) base named Kindley Field. At the end of World War II, the RAF left Bermuda. The field, by then hosting civil as well as military aircraft, was operated by the United States Air Force as Kindley Air Force Base until 1970, when it was transferred to the United States Navy. The Navy operated it as US Naval Air Station, Bermuda until 1995, when it was transferred to the Bermuda Government’s Ministry of Tourism and Transport. In 1963, I arrived on a propeller driven plane - not a jet. And in 1995, when we flew in I think it was still partly a Naval Air Station.

    Now, flights on many major airlines arrive in Bermuda from Chicago, Detroit, Atlanta, Miami, Toronto, Boston, New York, Philadelphia, Baltimore, Halifax and London
