If you love shopping, definitely hit up Front Street. Lots of shops ranging in prices. Plus a fabulous view of the harbor!
I have been to bermuda several times but the last trip here was 1999 or so. I was shocked to see how run down front street has become. it makes me realize that the world wide economy is really in very bad shape. I come from NY so I know how the econimic crisis has hit us on Long Island... More
Good for an hour stroll along the tourists shop lined tourist trap.
Struck us as being just another urban 'city'. Lots of people and lots of traffic. Plenty of stores to shop in, but prices in Bermuda are so high that you don't want to shop.
Front Street lost some of its charm & my favorite place to shop (Trimingham's) several years ago. Triminghams was a local department store that was classically decorated in the island style with cedar wood staircases and wonderful merchandise of all price levels. It was loved by locals and tourists. Still it is a fun place to pick up some souvenirs... More
On a previous trip, I thought that there was more to do on Front Street. There are several good restaurants on Front Street, which I will later write reviews on, and there is a lot of shopping. The problem with the shopping is that during the week they close at 6:00 or earlier, so I've never actually seen what's inside... More
I'm not sure if it's the current economic crisis that's also happening in much of the world, but Front Street wasn't very vibrant when we visited it for lunch and dinner throughout our stay.

We enjoyed our Wednesday night on Front Street which is also called Harbor Night. The Bermuda local vendors come out and sell their hand made items such as jewelry, jams, different foods, art work ect. There are lots of people, local music and a fun, festive atmosophere. We'd recommend dinner and then an hour to browse the vendors.
