What do do

Canadian Running - - PLACES -

Bridgetown it­self has ev­ery­thing you could want from a city: mar­kets, a shop­ping district and many ex­cel­lent restau­rants and bars with an ocean­front view. Cana­di­ans will be pleased to note that many of the ma­jor Cana­dian banks have branches in the city. Af­ter your races are done, tour the Mount Gay dis­tillery, which was founded in 1703 and is the old­est rum still cur­rently op­er­at­ing in the world. Bridgetown played host to the World Cricket Cup ten years ago, and went through a mas­sive sports and in­fra­struc­ture re­vi­tal­iza­tion project. The city now fea­tures the mas­sive Kens­ing­ton Oval that can hold up to 30,000 fans, so if there hap­pens to be a test, grab a ticket and take in this global sport. Of course, the mu­sic and cul­ture of Bar­ba­dos is worth the trip alone. Pop into a lo­cal venue for some soca or ca­lypso mu­sic and per­haps spot the next Ri­hanna. Ba­jan cui­sine is a fu­sion of the pri­mary cul­tural in­flu­ences on the is­land: West African, Cre­ole, British and In­dian. Be sure to try fly­ing fish, and wash it down with a lo­cal Banks ale.— CR
