Fort George, St. George's
(3.5/5 based on 420+ reviews on the web)
Head uphill to Fort George, a historical citadel overlooking the island nation's capital. Built by the French between 1705 and 1710, the fort has had a role in regional and domestic conflicts, including the Seven Years' War and the Grenadian Revolution. Today, the fort still shows damage caused by Hurricane Ivan in 2004, though the early 18th-century masonry left standing remains impressive and worth the trip. Another incentive: the panoramic views from the top of the volcanic hill. Choose to start, finish, or center your holiday on a trip to Fort George by using our St. George's travel itinerary maker.

  • Great place for a short hike and to take some great pictures!
  • Great views of the island! I don't know if there are tours or anything, but we just wandered around and read a bit from Wikipedia. The fort itself isn't super impressive, but the views of grand anse and downtown are spectacular.
  • Great views! Limited parking, great at sunset.
  • This fort will always be the best fort. I'm only a few years old 13 but it's the best!!(#COOL FORT!!)
  • History is preserved while providing a quiet setting for ocean gazing.
