The overall beauty of this place, makes me so envious of the way they conduct themselves there. 7-Mile beach, Hell, The Rum Cake Factory, Dolphin Encounter, shopping...I mean ut is truly paradise on Earth. My best advice, go see it for yourself. No words or pictures ar gonna do it any justice

It is a nice place to go for a walk however it's very touristy and it's mostly jewelry places. The stores close pretty early and most of them are closed on sundays

Small port town filled with Cruise Ship people. I wasn't impressed with the shops but if you got a little bit away from the tourism part there were some really cool cold buildings that we enjoyed checking out.

Shopping is name brand and very expensive. You can get similar things in the US, but I guess you don't pay the taxes there. Get your liquor at the airport. Go during the day, take the bus. Didn't really buy anything besides magnets. Be sure to go on days there aren't a lot of cruise ships or there will be... More

Georgetown is a destination for cruise ships, and there may be two to three anchored offshore on any day (except weekends). This means you will be sharing the shopping with a couple of thousand cruisers. The up side is that shopping for upmarket jewelry, watches, perfumes and cosmetics is extensive, but compare prices with what is available at home before... More

This is a busy cruise ship port. The shops are either souvenir junk shops or high end jewelry shops. It was crowded and there was a lot of traffic. It was not what I was expecting.

We didn't have an excursion booked for this call so we just walked around the port and town of Georgetown. The people were super friendly and there were a lot of shops to look around in. The town itself is very nice.

Lots of shops, local arts, restaurants, etc. We ended up there on an island day-tour during one of the cruise ships -- and you can definitely notice a difference downtown when they are there. Wow, the difference 4,000-5,000 people makes!! We enjoyed a nice meal of KFC (the only place that wasn't packed and then even it was) and shopped... More
