Dive into the history and culture of the Bahamas on your next cruise to Nassau with a visit to one of these 10 attractions near the port.
The must-sees on your downtown walking tour are Government House, the Christ Church Cathedral and the Queen's Staircase. Comfortable walking shoes are a must, especially if you're going to climb the 65 steps of the later that connect downtown Nassau with Fort Fincastle.
There are museums a plenty to explore in Nassau, from the National Art Gallery of the Bahamas to the Bahamas Historical Society Museum to the Pirates Museum of Nassau, which kids – young and old – will adore.
Kids will also love seeing the flamingos at the Ardastra Gardens Zoo and grownups will love touring the John Watling Distillery.
But your visit to Nassau is not complete without a little Junkanoo. Hit up Junkanoo Beach to get your toes in the sand and soak up the Caribbean sun reflecting off the clear, blue water. Then visit the Junkanoo Expo at the Prince George Wharf to experience this Bahamian cultural phenomenon before returning to your ship.
There's so much to see and do in Nassau that you might have a hard time choosing which of these ten attractions are your must-sees while you are docked in the Bahamas.
