Aruba and culture?

I don't get it. What's so great about Aruba? Seems to me it's not exactly a cultural oasis.

The beaches in Aruba are considered among the finest in the Caribbean. That is its major claim to fame.

Aruba is known for its superb beaches, but also for its massive concentration on casinos found in every high-rise hotel.  It therefore attracts a casino audience, and this might not be congenial to you.

I didn't find it so casino heavy when I was there! in fact, we really loved Aruba (nice people, great beaches, good food) and didn't once enter a casino! I'd say go. It's a TOP Caribbean island.
