Grenada is an island nation at the southern end of the Lesser Antilles. Although it was colonized initially by the French, it was a British colony from 1762 until it achieved independence in 1974. Since Grenada is in the southern Caribbean it is a great place to go in the winter to have warm weather.. They have become a cruise ship stop, so there is substantial tourism, but many Grenadians are fishermen.
