Nassau Vacations

Modern Nassau is not such a far cry from the rowdy town that once harbored pirates, stockade runners and prohibition-avoiding party crowds. The small, historic downtown core is a charming mix of narrow streets, grand sugar-pink neocolonial government buildings, and old wooden and limestone buildings dignified in their faded grandeur.

What To Do

Pirates of Nassau
Don’t even try to ignore the pirate pacing outside the museum. Like any seafaring ruffian worth his parrot and peg leg, he had you in his sights the moment you turned the corner. But that’s OK – with its partial re-creation of a 130ft-long sailing ship, animatronic pirates and accessible exhibits on everything from marooning to pirate Hall of Famers, this museum provides the right mix of entertainment and history for kids, parents and students of piratology.

Atlantis Waterscape
No trip would be complete for families, or even big kids, without a visit to Atlantis' huge Waterscape. Claiming to be the world's largest open-air aquarium, it has a whole host of lagoons and is home to 200 species of marine life.

Rawson Square
The heart of town for tourists is Rawson Sq, on the south side of Bay St. It’s a natural place to begin a tour of downtown Nassau. Guided walking tours also begin here. Nearby is a life-sized bronze Bahamian Woman statue, which honors the role of women during ‘years of adversity.’
