Getting There in Hamilton (Capital City)Edit This
A beautiful place to stay and enjoy a carefree vacation is Bermuda's
capital Hamilton. Getting there is relatively easy by both plane and
boat, with an international airport serviced by many cities and large
dockyards to accommodate the scores of cruise ships that pass through
the area throughout the year.
Planes fly into Bermuda International Airport direct on daily flights
from major cities including New York, Philadelphia, Atlanta, Boston,
Toronto, London and Washington. Additionally, there are numerous less
frequent flights throughout the week originating in the U.S. and Canada.
Airport taxes are high here so expect your ticket to cost more than other neighboring Caribbean destinations.
From the airport there are taxis and buses available. If you are taking a tour in Bermuda, your tour operator will most likely arrange transportation for you as part of your package.
Cruise ships are a popular way to get to Bermuda throughout the
summer with ships operating from the East Coast of the U.S. There are 3 cruise ports in the Hamilton area - Hamilton, Saint George and
Royal Naval Dockyard. Depending on which cruise ship operator you are
traveling on and the size of your ship, you will stay at one of these
ports when stopped in Bermuda.
Once you reach Hamilton, you can easily explore the entire island, using this centralized city as a home base and branching out on several day trips to some of the more remote areas of the island.
