When you want to take a break from the sun and Barbados beaches there is an excellent selection of activities to fill your day and many tour operators who can show you all the popular sites.

Be sure to add the Barbados Wildlife Reserve to your list of things to do. Here the animals roam free and you can walk around with them. In the center of the island is the stunning Morgan Lewis Mill, a restored windmill built in the 1700s. It was operational until 1945 and was restored under a grant from American Express. In the same vicinity is the St. Nicholas Abbey, the oldest estate on the island and one of three remaining examples of Jacobean architecture in the Americas.

Heading east from Bridgetown, there are several things to see on your way to the wild East Coast. First there's the impressive military compound just east of town, the Garrison Savannah historic area. This 17th-century compound has parade grounds now used for horse racing and sports, and is home to the Barbados Museum & Historical Society, located in a former 19th-century British military prison. The most outstanding building in the compound is the Main Guard with its large clock tower.

Andromeda Gardens

The Andromeda Botanical Garden, found in the parish of St.Joseph, is a six-acre garden containing several varieties of orchids, palms, ferns, heliconia, hibiscus, bougainvillea, begonias and cacti. The beautiful and exotic flowers and trees are complemented by a lovely stream which bisects the land and forms enchanting pools and waterfalls. The carefully landscaped grounds are lavishly coloured with blooms, orchids, exotics and shrubs, this garden represents what is arguably one of the finest collections in the region.

The property is tastefully accented with ponds, streams, shady nooks and rocky ledges. The orchid collection is wonderfully vast and because of the tremendous variety, there is almost always something in bloom.
