Still asking, Why go? Let Site59 shed some light on one of the Top 50 destinations on the list – Bermuda:

Bermuda: The Long and Shorts of It

Striking aqua waters, charming British idiosyncrasies, and arguably the friendliest people on earth are only 600 miles off the North Carolina coast (that`s an hour and 43-minute flight for you New Yorkers).

Place we love, even if it is touristy: St. George`s village, a UNESCO World Heritage Site of 17th-century cottages and cobblestone streets.

History lesson: Take a 20-minute walk from St. George`s to Fort St. Catherine (ca. 1614), the most impressive of 13 remaining British forts on the island.

Off-the-beaten path: While tourists flock to Horseshoe Beach for volleyball pick-up games, follow the sandy footpath to the seemingly private Chaplin Bay, just over the neighboring grassy knoll.

Editor`s favorite watering hole: They say you drop in and swagger out of the 1930s-era Swizzle Inn in Southampton, famous for the Dark n` Stormy, a blend of spiced Bermuda rum and ginger beer.

Break the bank dinner: The beguiling cottages of the Waterloo House, with their bougainvillea-draped walls, yellow and white-striped awnings, and views of passing sailboats, set the scene for an elegant, five-course dinner.

Day after the break-the-bank dinner: The Saturday night crowd can be found at uptown Hamilton`s Jamaica Grill, the place for sublime coconut fish, jerk chicken, and banana dumplings.

Local flavor: Most food in Bermuda is imported, so it`s worth seeking out local rockfish, conch fritters, fish cakes, and shark hash, a hard-to-find and surprisingly tasty blend of shredded shark meat, spices, and rice.

Good to know: Tourists aren`t permitted to drive in Bermuda, and taxis can add hundreds of dollars to a weekend getaway. Follow a Bermudian`s lead and take the bus-it`s a relatively inexpensive and relaxing way to see a lot of the islands.

Dress code: You`ll giggle the first time you see them, but Bermuda shorts, which are sharpest when donned with a navy blazer and standard-issue knee-highs and loafers, would be a perfect addition to the trip wardrobe.
