question about the bars/nightlife

Post by runninencircles » Wed Jul 12, 2006 10:10 pm

im planning a big trip in september to the island but we do have a few people that are still only 20. how old do you have to be to get into the bars? 19+ or 21+? and do you think they'll even have fun if they cant get in??? any info will be greatly appreciated. thanks

I think it all depends where you're staying. IMO if you're staying in a hotel or someplace like that, it wouldn't be that fun, but if you're staying on a boat, you'll all have a blast even if you're not 21. Not that I'm condoning underage drinking, but if I were 20, I'd definitely have a few drinks while taking in all the action happening on the docks. Plus something is always happening out there so it could be very entertaining watching all the drunks come back to their boats.

You have to be 21 to get into the bars. So if it is a weekend of bar hopping you have planned then those who are underage might not have too much fun. However I agree with pbosak, if you're boating to the island then the docks are plenty fun to hang out on all weekend, well that is the public ones. So if it isn't just getting pickled you have planned to do there are lots of things that everyone might enjoy...parasailing, golf, wave runners, putt putt, caves, shops, bi-plane rides, fishing, the museum, tour train, biking, golf carts,swimming...all the resort stuff. But as the sun begins to fade...downtown transforms it's self into a 21 and over play ground.
