10 Things to do This Week in Bermuda
January 25 – 31
#1. Whohoo The Zoo Has Re-Opened!
The Bermuda Aquarium and Zoo has been closed out of an abundance of caution to protect the animals. Today January 25th, 2021 – they re-opened to the public. You must sign-up as there is a 30 person limit. Let’s get back down there and see all of our favourite animals and sea creatures. The zoo is packed with educational exhibits that are great for kids and adults. The collection of marine life is just incredible and the interactive displays so fun too. Don’t forget the gift shop – one of our favourite places to pick up birthday gifts! In addition to visiting the zoo, they also offer some online events too.

Who doesn’t eat Tacos on Tuesdays??? Bermuda Bistro at the Beach is a perfect place to enjoy tacos with friends or family. The $4 taco (min of 3) special is available for dine in only. They open at 3:30pm so get on down there and grab a table.
#3. Restaurant Weeks Is An Absolute Must
January 14 – February 11
During the following 3 – 4 weeks take advantage and enjoy this emphasis on Bermuda’s food culture, spotlighting our local harvest heros and Bermuda-inspired menus at a number of establishments across the island. This is a time for great deals and discovering new favourites. It’s also the time to support our local restaurants, friends and family in the industry that give so much to our community.
Here you will find a complete list of participating restaurants
#4. Explore The B.U.E.I
Go solo, with a friend or the whole family! Connect with this state of the art interactive exhibition featuring virtual reality, an indoor dive experience and priceless artefacts.

Ask about the series named after the chefs!!
#5. Book the family for a Private Farm Tour with Wild Island Farms.
This is a safe, outdoor activity, feeding and petting the cutest little and big animals and will fill the void of not being able to go to BAMZ (which is currently closed).

If you haven’t been to The Tuck Shop yet or just haven’t been in a while, it’s the perfect pit stop on the way or on the way home for a perfect coffee and freshly baked treats for the whole family!!
#6. Do a little early Valentine’s Day shopping in Dockyard!!
Bermuda Glassworks is a great place to explore. Connect with the craft by watching artists create and find something truly unique for your loved ones. If you’ve got diamonds on your mind then check out Diamonds International – obviously – you can’t go wrong gift diamonds and or jewellery… This is a great opportunity to check out Restaurant Weeks as well!
