People in The Bahamas 
Nassau, New Providence, The Bahamas
Avoid this place. It sucks bigtime. I have travelled the world and Nassau is in my bottom 10. Rude people, overpriced, nothing to see, bad food, dirty beaches and full of cheap tourists. Disgusting.

Nassau, New Providence, The Bahamas
If you are visiting Nassau, then you might want to consider staying on Paradise Island. The actual city of Nassau is a bit run down. It is very safe during the day, but at night there aren't a lot of people out on the streets so I would recommend getting a taxi if you are traveling late at night.

When you get off the cruise ship, watch for all the people screaming and yelling at you to go her and go there. Plan ahead. Look at what the cruise ship offers and go with it. If not, rent a scooter! hahaha

Nassau, New Providence, The Bahamas
I stayed on land for a week most people do the cruise they don't get to see as much , we stayed along the water rented a condo/cottage on the strip ,the water was aqua was breath taking. I spent a lot of time on the beach ,there was music ,bars , and lots of activitys on the beach. It is a amazing place I went on a booze cruise and they took us all over diff islands , jet skiing was awsome jumping 7 or 8 ft waves i was scared at first ,but nothing like that feeling it may hurt a little but worth it, the food was ok just depends where you go,took trip for the day to the Atlantis hotel ,can we say amazing there was a aquarium the biggest i have ever seen. the middle bridge of the hotel is only for big spenders the cost to stay there a nite was 25,000 lot of celebs stay there according to what they said. The casino that was fun to party in,the shops were awsome, You can spend the whole day there cuz there is so much to see it was screaming fine luxury. I had fun both times i went and the next time i go I want to see the pink sands island forgot the name of it ,but it looked nice, the best tip i can give you is when you are downtown don't let them rip you off they will try to get you to buy everything 3 x the price just tell them you seen it cheaper a few blocks down so you get it cheaper.

Bahama Islands, Cat Island, The Bahamas
When travelling to the Bahamas try to Island Hop and see other attractions of the family islands. Go to Elethrua to see the Glass Bottom Bridge or Abaco an see one of the oldest well kept Lighthouse. San Salvador to see the first landfall made by Christopher Columbus in the new world. Andros is famous for Charlie's inland Blue hole and world famous bone fishing done by many celebrities such as Sean Conery. Don't forget to check out Grand Bahama, Bimini, Exuma, Cat Island, Long Island and the others further south. There is so much to choose from! Staying on New Providence is just one island to choose from.

Wear Sun Screen. If you go snorkeling make sure you head out about 20 feet from shore, that's when the water clears and you see all the fish.

Take a day trip to Atlantis Hotel. They have an amazing aquarium and the hotel is dripping in luxury. If you have the money stay for the night.

Nassau, New Providence, The Bahamas
Nassau is a great island to visit...most of the hotels won't let you access their beaches so come prepared if you are a cruise ship passenger. We took the ferry to Paradise Island and hung out by the Atlantis Hotel. A must see - this hotel is amazing...plop down on the beach and get a local coconut with rum poured in it...yummy! Bring sunscreen - it's extremely hot here!

That's where the big hotels are on Grand Bahama. You can find casinos, a marina and an open air shopping mall with bars and restaurants. Flights from Nassau, Miami, Fort Lauderdale and Orlando, as well as Atlanta and other American cities

The Bahamas Economy 
Freeport City, Grand Bahama, The Bahamas
The Bahamas....really? The place sucks. Not just a little, but a lot. Like enough to make your ears pop. I understand island time and being laid back, but this place is off the charts. It would appear that tourism would be a major driver of the economy, but the service industry here is just plain lackadaisical. Waiters and waitresses could not be less concerned. I never felt that safe at night. You could not pay me to go back. Take your hard earned money to a destination where it, and you, are valued.
