Barbados is the eastern most of the Windward Islands. It offers some of the finest beaches in the Caribbean, award winning rums and flower gardens.  At the same time Barbados has a rich and complex history. It also retains many fine historical buildings. Historic Bridgetown and its Garrison form a UNESCO World Heritage Centre. The island also retains the house where George Washington lived in 1751 on his only visit outside the mainland North American Colonies.
