St. George's, St. George's

St. George's
Bermuda
Concierge.com's insider take:

The historic town of St. George's, the landing site of English colonists shipwrecked en route to Virginia in 1609 and the oldest continuously occupied town of English origin in the Western Hemisphere, was declared an UNESCO World Heritage site in 2000. Apart from its perfectly preserved architecture, alleyways, and lanes, one important sight is the replica of the Deliverance, the ship built to carry most of the survivors of the 1609 shipwreck onward to Virginia. St. Peter's Church, believed to be the oldest continuously operating Anglican church in the Western Hemisphere, is also worth a stop on Duke of York Street; some parts of it date from the original 1612 construction, others have been added through a series of restorations from the 17th through 20th centuries. Stroll through the cemetery behind the church, where the whitewashed gravestones shimmering in the sun seem oddly cheerful. Designed as a humbling punishment, the stocks and ducking stool in King's Square are now a setting for festive tourist snapshots.
