Fort George

Completed by the British in 1710, Fort George served to protect St. George's City from attack. Today, only some portions of the fort is open to the public, with the other part serving as offices for the Royal Grenada Police Force. With the portions that are open to the public, and the fantastic views of the city and harbor, Fort George makes a great trip if exploring the area.

Staying Close

Consider staying in downtown St. George if you plan on visiting Fort George, as those visiting this region of Grenada will have easy site access for the duration of their trip. There isn't much congestion in the area near the historic site, perhaps because there is such a modest selection of places to stay nearby.
