The capital city of the Bahamas is Nassau, the largest city in the island nation and a popular travel destination. The city is full of energy and so much to see and do! Do some shopping along Bay Street, check out the colorful architecture, spend a day on the beach, explore the historic Old Town, dine on delicious food in eclectic restaurants and sip on some cocktails at the fun, quirky bars. Aside the beaches on Nassau, it’s easy to miss the rich history and culture that lies outside the glistening hotels and towering resorts in Nassau and Paradise Island. Nassau boasts a rich tapestry of history, culture and cuisine. Nassau is home to some of the world’s most beautiful beaches as well as the National Art Gallery of the Bahamas.
