One day I was visiting a community discussion board and came across a member's request for more information, on what attractions were near where they were staying. I was amazed by one of the response that went like this "Other than golf and the beach there really was nothing much to do in that place" Puerto Rico is only two hundred miles long by 35 miles wide, in view of this you can drive to just about any part of the Island in one day.
Here is a list of a few of the main events on the island.
o Punta Borinquen Golf Course, in Aguadilla
o Parque de Las Ciencias Luis A. Ferré, in Bayamón
o Casa Museo Joaquin de Rojas & Monte Torrecilla, in Barranquitas

These are only a few of the attractions available to the visiting tourist to this Island paradise. If you are looking for cultural attractions' you should head over to old San Juan, walk the narrow, winding, cobblestone roads and sample the Architecture and visit the Museums. If shopping is your fancy there are great shops all through Old San Juan you can spend a day in and out of these shop selling just about anything from crafty hand made articles to gold and jewelry.
All the fast food chain and restaurants found on the main land have a presence here, McDonald, Burger king, KFC, Macaroni Grill, Sizzler just to mention a few. Alternatively, you can enjoy Pollo Tropical, Martin Chicken or any of the local food eateries that serve just about anything you can imagine. Seafood lovers would love our restaurants that serve fresh seafood caught by anglers that go out daily for the catch of the day.
Puerto Rico is an island paradise with beaches on every coast; they feature beautiful warm blue waters with some of the best scenic views in the world. There is plenty of nightlife in San Juan and Isla Verde with casinos in many of the major hotels. You could spend a whole week taking in all that Puerto Rico has to offer and not cover one third of what we have mentioned here in this article.
