on a pier in Palm Beach. Daily Happy Hours....come and enjoy.
In Aruba there are many restored and protected properties, especially in Oranjestad, the capital city.
Monuments are looked after very well, and no changes are allowed to be made, just painting and fixing, but the facades need to stay the same. There is a nice downtown walking tour. see link;https://arubawalkingtours.com
