Can be a great place to visit but know where you are going first, meaning excursions (highly recommended) to outer islands or eating. Do research and you'll have a better experience. Only take taxis that are marked! The bus system can be useful but make sure you are clear with the driver where you are going. The island is what you make of it.

Nassau offers an incredible array of things to see and do. From relaxing beaches to vibrant city streets, markets, and festivals, there is something to satisfy everyone in Nassau. A stroll down Bay Street, the city’s main thoroughfare, leads you past historic buildings, shops, restaurants and pubs. Vendue House on Bay Street houses the Pompey Museum, the region’s only museum which provides a detailed history of slavery. On nearby Market Street, you will find the historic Balcony House, Nassau’s oldest remaining wooden structure.
Government House has been the ... More home of the Bahamian Governor-General since 1801. The British influence in the islands is demonstrated by Government House’s Changing of the Guard ceremony which takes place every other Saturday, and by the Tea Party held on the last Friday of the month by the Governor-General’s wife. The pink buildings of Parliament Square were built in 1815, and include the Houses of Assembly, the Supreme Court, and the old Colonial Secretary’s Office. When Parliament is not in session, visitors can enjoy tours through these buildings.
For anyone interested in the less savoury aspects of Bahamian history, a visit to the Pirates of Nassau is a must. This attraction brings the history of the pirates to life in an interactive, fun and historically accurate way, and even includes a pirate-themed pub. Festival Place at Prince George Wharf is modelled on the architecture of a small Bahamian village, and includes a Welcome Centre where 45 artisans sell traditional Bahamian arts and crafts, and a tourist information centre with information on activities, sights, and tours through Nassau and the Bahamas.

The Bahamas is made up of 700 islands and cays in the Atlantic Ocean, situated between Florida, Cuba and the Caribbean. The tropical climate makes the islands attractive to sun-lovers, although in summer and autumn, hurricanes often pass very close to – or even through – the islands.
Nassau, the capital, lies on the shore of a protected harbour on New Providence Island. Its population of 180,000 makes this the largest city in the archipelago, and in fact roughly two-thirds of the country’s population live on this island. The city was founded by the ... More British in the mid 1600s as Charlestown, but was renamed in 1695 in honour of William III of Orange-Nassau, successor to the English throne. It became a popular haven for pirates during the 18th century, including the famous and fearsome Blackbeard. Later in the same century, the Spanish attempted to invade Nassau, and in 1776, American revolutionaries briefly gained control of the city. Tourism took off in the 1960s when Cuba was closed to American tourists, and the government dredged Nassau’s harbour to accommodate up to six cruise ships at a time, as well as building hotels and resorts.

Nassau has been a great home for me and my family and Nassau is a beautiful place to live and to tour. It is one of the best places for tours to come and visit the Bahamas. Nassau has a lot of tours and souvenirs and a lot of places to live or just stay for as long as they want and enjoy any where in the Bahamas island and for you to relax.
