When vacationing on Aruba, don't miss taking a tour of Oranjestad, the capital of the small Caribbean island.

Antilla Shipwreck and Bushiribana Gold Mill Ruins are good opportunities to explore the local culture. The adventure continues: take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Hooiberg, browse the different shops at Touch of Gold, stroll through Aruba Ostrich Farm, and take in the architecture and atmosphere at St. Ann's Catholic Church.
