As you pull into the historic Port of Georgetown, close your eyes. You might just be able to hear the whistle of an old steamship that once visited this port in the late 19th century. A natural deep water harbour, Georgetown has a history steeped in ship building, fishing, and other sea trades.
Perhaps the steady ocean breeze can be thanked for producing the friendly, salt-of-the-earth people of Georgetown—a people fiercely proud of their quaint seaside community. And the mi-nute you enter the harbour, you’ll see why. With breathtaking ocean views, elaborate community gardens, and charming touches at every turn, Georgetown has a lot to be proud of.
In addition to its physical beauty, there’s more to see and do than you would imagine for a des-tination of its size. Even though Georgetown only has a population of roughly six hundred souls, you can enjoy live theatre, fine dining, shopping, gardens, golf, and more, with most services located within easy walking distance of the ship.
If you’re feeling brave, take a walk to the King’s Playhouse and ask to hear stories of the para-normal visitors they’ve had over the years. There’s even a special seat in the theatre reserved for the ghost who refuses to leave. (Now that’s hospitality.)
