Open Jaw In Saint Lucia
Day 2: Bay Gardens, Historic Forts & Segway Adventures
Bay Gardens Beach Resort in Saint Lucia's famous Rodney Bay is hosting Open Jaw as we gear up to attend the 7th annual North American Showcase today, and the family-owned property has recently completed a full renovation on its 78 rooms, decking them out with new furniture, beds, décor, floor tiles, mirrors and a fresh coat of paint.

After a property tour of Bay Gardens that showed off its updated tropics-inspired rooms and suites, spa, kid's club, two on-site restaurants and other resort features, it was off to tour an entirely different type of grounds: Pigeon Island.

Swapping feet for wheels, the media group then took a Segway tour with the Lucian Style Experience Center, getting to see Pigeon Island from a completely different vantage point, this time from across the bay.
Lucian Style tour guides Edwin and Keyz took us to little-known lookout points and, a particularly special experience, a freshwater pond where we got pedicures as koi fish nibbled on our feet.
