Self-guided tours around the historic and scenic settlements of The Abacos are the norm by visitors, usually on foot or by rental bicycle, car or golf cart. City and country tours can also be arranged through any of the local taxi drivers; rates are usually negotiable. A few tour companies, such as The Great Abaco Express, provide organized tours upon request. Unique cultural and historical attractions include the New England-style architecture of the original settlers, monuments to Loyalists and fishermen, museums, a bronze art foundry and the world-renowned Blue Bee Bar. But, the most colorful attraction is the candy-striped Elbow Reef Lighthouse on Elbow Cay.
