Hey all... I know this type of message has been left many many times before but I am going to be "that guy" and ask the same questions. Real quick though let me explain my situation. I will be vacationing with my 9 and 12 year daughters. We love to swim, snorkel, explore, shop, eat, sightsee, people watch, and have fun. I want to show my kids the Caribbean way and let them see the sights, sounds, eclectic decor, and let them see something other than the midwest. At this time I don't have any intentions to rent a car but if need be, we can take the bus. With all this said, I have determined the Dutch side is where we want to stay and I have narrowed it down to Simpson Bay and Great Bay. Ultimately, I want to be able to step on to the beach where we can swim and snorkel (with active sea life), walk to a lot of shopping and a lot of restaurants.
Any advice is greatly appreciated! Thanks.
