Grenada — This southern Caribbean island last made U.S. headlines in 1983 when Ronald Reagan ordered an invasion to quell a Marxist coup. Since then, mostly Brits have trod Grenada's 50-odd beaches, making it a great choice for American sunseekers who would rather not run into their neighbors on the sand. Other attractions include Grenada’s capital, St. George’s, which cascades down around a handsome port known as the Carenage, and the island's bustling markets, where one can purchase some of the dozen-plus domestically produced spices. The island is also home to the Caribbean’s oldest waterwheel-powered distillery.
