Most of the tourists head for Grenada Island and its capital St George on their family vacations in Grenada. Even if you decide to stay on one of the less populated islands, you should take a ferry trip across here (choose a day when cruise liners aren’t anchored off-shore) and see what this beautiful town has to offer. Fort George is the oldest fort in Grenada and the walk up from the town may be heavy going, especially at the hottest part of the day, but the views of the harbor and Lagoon are incredible and well worth the effort.
