Five nominations for Barbados in USA Today’s 10Best Readers' Choice Awards

Barbados has received nominations in four out of the six categories in the annual online poll.

USA Today’s travel experts have made their 20 nominations in each category and the public now has 24 days left to cast their vote.

Barbados' five nominations fall in the categories of Best Restaurant in the Caribbean (The Cliff); Best Caribbean Attraction (George Washington House and Museum and St. Nicholas Abbey); Best Caribbean Golf Course (The Green Monkey at Sandy Lane); and Best Caribbean Dive Site (Carlisle Bay).
