With its lush landscape and many unique experiences for visitors, Hamilton, Bermuda, is a breathtaking travel spot for those looking to leave behind the hustle and bustle of big-city life.

The stunning snorkeling or scuba diving areas will amaze you with how clear the waters are.
If you’re looking for something a bit calmer, take a boat ride around the island surrounded by breathtaking views of the turquoise waters, and maybe even spot some dolphins or whales.
There's a ton of rich history to explore in Bermuda, as well, like the African Diaspora Heritage Trail that will take you to monuments from the 18th century when enslaved persons from the West Indies and West Africa were brought there.
