Trinidad & Tobago Attractions and Activities
Queen’s Park Savannah
Queen’s Park Savannah is a park where a sugar plantation formally stood. After the park was donated by a private party, it became an important cultural center, being the site of many celebrations and large concerts. A trail surrounding the park is a popular spot for joggers and families enjoying leisurely walks. When Carnival is held, this park is the center of many Carnival festivities.
National Museum and Art Gallery
Some of Trinidad and Tobago’s most celebrated works of art are displayed in the National Museum. The museum’s collection contains art depicting Carnival celebrations, the experiences of local residents, and historical artifacts from pre-colonial civilizations. Museum visitors can also view the work of famous international and local artists.
Maracas Bay is situated just under an hour drive from Port of Spain. The Bay’s beach is lined with coconut tree, providing shade from the Caribbean sun. Numerous restaurants and bars serving local dishes, such as fried shark, can be found on Maracas Bay Beach. This is not the best place to swim since the sea can often be rough.
Fort Bennett is situated in Black Rock near Plymouth. This historic building served as a lookout point for the British Navy during the colonial era. Tourists visiting the fort today can stand underneath a pavilion to enjoy the great view of the sea available from this point. What remains of the battery and other structures can also be toured.
