To get the lay of the land, start with the island’sthree main regions.Out here, a small population (65,000 residents) makes fora strong neighbourhood identity. Each community bringswith it a unique culture all its own, and a local characterto match. Whether it’s the history-rich East End, stillstamped by its Colonial past; the sophisticated and globalcapital City of Hamilton at the centre; or the popularsightseeing hub and maritime vestige, the West End,Bermuda is easy to get to, but a world away.Let the locals be your guide.East EndSt. George’sPhotos: Crystal Caves / Town of St. GeorgeThe Historical AnchorEast EndRoyal NavalDockyardCity ofHamiltonKristin WhiteCentralWest End6GoToBermuda.com // Fall 2018Site of the island’s former capital and UNESCO World Heritagesite, the Town of St. George, the East End is rich with BritishColonial history and culture.

St. George’s combines old and new: quaint streets with nameslike Old Maid’s Lane, Colonial buildings dating back to the 17th century, and bustling moderncafés and boutiques bursting with local wares. White combines her love of Bermudianhistory with her love of food on her East End Eats Bicycle Tour, taking visitors to local ediblegardens and to restaurants and bars where the community hangs out, and working innuggets of culture as she goes. Said White, “Everything here has a connection to the past.”Fall 2018 // GoToBermuda.com7
