Cool little city that is a mix of brand new buildings and streets and store fronts that look like they are from the 1800's. I ended up getting a Police Escort to take me from the Jitney bus area in the back of town to the main areas...Please note...not because the city is dangerous, it for the most part is not...simply because the people are so friendly when I asked a Police Woman for directions...she said I'll show you...and walked me all the way. This is one of the safest islands.Recommended for:

Bridgetown, and the nearby Garrison, is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. A walking tour, using a map or Foursquare, is a great way to explore the city and see it's historic sites.
Some spots to look out for are: Parliament Buildings (3rd oldest parliament in the western hemisphere), statue of Lord Nelson, the Old Spirit Bond building and St, Mary's Church. Have a look at http://barbados.org/historic-bridgetown-garrison-barbados-interactive.htm for other heritage spots.
A walk through Queen's Park is highly recommended. Be sure to see the solar house at the western entrance and historic Baobab tree which is over 1000 years old.
There are lots of places to have lunch in Bridgetown but the Waterfront Cafe is particularly nice.
Do duty-free shopping on Broad Street and stop by Pelican Craft Village for local craft and art.

This is a tiny little sea side city with great shopping and lots of tourist activities. The port is lovely the buildings are full of such architectural history and beauty that's common of the tropical islands.
