For centuries, the natural beauty of Bermuda has served as an inspirational backdrop for artists, writers, musicians, and poets. One walk over this 21-square mile island paradise and you'll understand why. Today, musical organisations, drama societies, dance companies, and international performing artists are waiting to perform for you.
Concerts, performances, and dramatic presentations by the Bermuda Philharmonic, Bermuda Musical & Dramatic Society, Bermuda Civic Ballet, Gilbert & Sullivan Society, Menuhin Foundation, and other local and visiting troupes, ensembles, and soloists make for cultural events as lively as the Island is colourful.
Bermuda has a remarkably mild climate that seldom sees extremes of either hot or cold. During the winter months (December through March), temperatures average 70°F. The hottest part of the year is between May and mid-October, when temperatures range from 75°F to 85°F. The summer months are somewhat drier, although rainfall is spread fairly evenly throughout the year.
There are no drive-yourself cars for hire, but visitors get about easily by taxi, bus, ferry, motor scooters (no driver's licence is required), and by horse and carriage.
When visiting Bermuda, you will notice that businessmen and civil servants still wear Bermuda Shorts as a formal fashion. Bermudians often wear them for business attire and cocktail parties.
