The buildings in the colony's capital and seat of government reflect a 19th-century Bermudian style. Narrow streets, designed just wide enough for horse and cart, are lined with white stone walls and old street lamps. The once-vital salinas have been restored, and covered benches along the sluices offer shady spots for observing wading birds, including flamingos that frequent the shallows. Be sure to pick up a copy of the tourist board's Heritage Walk guide to uncover the who and when behind Cockburn Town’s Front Street.
