Hamilton in Bermuda: nice way to spend a leisurely afternoon.
Wachusett Mountain: a great place to ski for beginners.
Labadee in Haiti: engineered for a great beach-going experience for tourists.
We stopped in Labadee (Haiti) as part of a cruise itinerary on Royal Caribbean (which also went to Ochos Rios in Jamaica and Cozumel in Mexico). We were in Labadee on the first shore day.
