Default Re: shopping

Bermuda does not have the discount type shopping offered in the ports like St Thomas, St Martin or Aruba. That said it has great shopping. Whether in Hamilton, St Georges or the Dockyard you will find branches of most of the same shops. Featured items are woolens, linens, and loacl art works amoung other things. Jewelry stores feature charms in silver, gold and diamonds that are Bermuda Onions and long tailed swallows (the national bird).
Shopping is not the frenetic pace of the Caribbean ports, but rather a bit more sedate,
quiet and refined. Shopping is more liesurely and enjoyable here if you ask me.
