Uncover the culture, history and adventuresome nature of the Bahama Islands through site visits, guided tours and activities on the land and in the waters surrounding Nassau and Paradise Island. Settled by the British and American Loyalists escaping post Revolutionary War consequences, Nassau is a mixing pot of cultures. The Loyalist planters brought with them their slaves, introducing African traditions and heritage into the mix for a rich diversity of culture and history you can experience throughout Nassau and its environs.
Attractions such as Pirates of Nassau and The National Art Gallery of the Bahamas in downtown Nassau familiarize visitors to the island chain's fascinating, swashbuckling bygones and vibrant arts scene. The city is full of historic sites and places to experience the culture, which explodes during the holidays with the world-renowned, flamboyant Junkanoo street festival.
Just make sure you do not leave Nassau without experiencing one of its greatest treasures - its clear, multi-hued waters and what lies underneath. Any number of sailing, boating, fishing, snorkeling, diving and marine animal interaction charters and tours can get you out and into the clear blue.
Or stick land side for your adventure at local resorts that offer everything from a high-roller casino, a water park and golf to making chocolate and rolling cigars.
