Bermuda
October 2000

In the October issue of TRAVELER, we feature 22 superb weekend getaways. One of our selections is Bermuda, located about 650 miles (1,046 kilometers) due east of Cape Hattaras, North Carolina. As writer Erin Monroney notes, it’s as much a place for a relaxing get-together as it is for a romantic getaway. We think you’ll be inspired to visit to after reading Monroney’s tale. So here, we offer the very best links on traveling to Bermuda.
