About This Nassau Tour
It really is better in the Bahamas. As you flit past Rawson Square, you can admire the cast-in-bronze statue of a woman holding a child. This lustrous lady proudly stands for the role women played during the island's years of adversity. You'll also hop over to Parliament Square to gaze at perfectly pink structures that pack a load of political power, including the House of Assembly, the Senate Building, and the Supreme Court of the Bahamas.
One look at Government House – the blushing mansion that serves as the official residence to the Governor General of the Bahamas – will have you pondering a run for office. On Arawak Cay, you'll inhale the smells of an authentic Bahamian fish fry. You'll also admire the Nassau Straw Market's vibrant wares, including hand woven hats, rich woodcarvings, and conch shell jewelry.
But the story of the Bahamas is not all pretty pastel buildings, yummy fish, and bustling markets. The Pompey Museum, named for a slave who led a long-ago revolt against unfair plantation conditions, is housed in Vendue House, a structure where slaves were bought and sold in the 18th and 19th centuries. And you'll have the chance to descend upon Fort Charlotte and Fort Fincastle to cast yourself back to a time when the island had to defend its shores against attack.
Now fast-forward to a modern-day paradise. Crossing the Sir Sidney Poitier Bridge will get you there. Arriving on Paradise Island, Atlantis stretches out before you – the world-famous resort, not the underwater city – so you don't need to plug your nose to dive into this utopia!
A bridge to fame
The Bahamas' largest bridge was rechristened with Sidney Poitier's name in 2012 during the 40th anniversary of the island nation's independence. Poitier left behind his impoverished childhood on the Bahamas' Cat Island to earn international acclaim as an actor, Oscar winner, recipient of SAG's Life Achievement Award, Knight Commander of the Order of the British Empire, and Bahamian ambassador to Japan and UNESCO.
