Self guided walking tour - Aruba

Recommended Posts

Does anyone have information to a link or map of a self guided walking tour of the places of interest in town?  Our ship docks at 1 PM so we will only have around 4 hours of daylight.

I don't believe that it ever gets dark in Aruba before 7 PM.

That said, there really isn't much to see in the Town.  The Parliament Buildings are on the Main (shore) Boulevard, just slightly south of the Cruise Port and some of the architecture is charming, but virtually everything else in the town is Casino's, shops and restaurants.

You're much better off to go to a beach.

I found (google) that sunset on our date is around 6:15.  If things like the fort and museum are not interesting, it probably allows time for a beach trip.
