Sure, you could spend $1,500 on a ticket to the Broadway hit and recent GRAMMY winning play, “Hamilton.” Or you could invest just a little bit more on the Alexander Hamilton experience at Nevis’ Montpelier Plantation & Beach, where they’re celebrating the founding father and native son with a promotional package.


Valid between April 1 and December 20, 2016, the four-night (or longer) deal includes accommodation in a plantation room; daily breakfast; a half-day excursion to Charlestown to tour the Hamilton House at the Museum of Nevis History; and a “Hamiltonian” couples’ massage.

And when you’re finished enjoying the boutique hotel on the island Hamilton called home, you can raise a toast to the first U.S. Secretary of the Treasury with the resort’s new signature nightcap, the Brandy Alexander Hamilton, made with local brandy, white rum, lemon, pineapple and passion fruit juices.

The Alexander Hamilton package is $1,780, based on double occupancy.
