Grenada is know for the export of Nutmeg and Mace, beaches, and beautiful Caribbean waters. Next week I'll be there as part of the Caribbean Rum and Beer Festival. There is so much more to this island than just the festival. The beautiful waters that surround it and her fantastic beaches, colorful cities and the mountains. This 133 square mile island is packed with many beautiful sites. There are three major distilleries on the island that produce some very fine rums for all to sample. Grenada has history that spans from 1649, as a French Colony, to a British Colony, to Independence in 1974. After the independence there was a revolution, and American Invasion and peace since 1983. This is an Island with so much history and beauty that Three days in country will not be enough time to get to know it.
