Nassau, Bahamas – Vacation Packages

By Miss Julie | December 24th, 2006

Nassau, BahamasThe Bahamas, some 700 islands and 2,000 islets, lie scattered like a broken string of pearls across the northern Caribbean and offer literally thousands of opportunities for adventure. One of the most popular, and easiest to reach, island destinations near the United States but there’s enough sand and sun to go around. Water sports include snorkeling, parasailing, windsufing, water skiiing and of course, scuba diving.

Nassau, located on the island of New Providence, boasts a population of more than 175,000 people. In times gone by, Nassau was an international playground for the rich. Today, the first city of the Bahamas attracts not only the affluent of the world, but vacationers of every class and culture, especially from America. Despite its popularity, colonial quaintness is not lost. The Royal Victoria Garden will leave you breathless as you stroll through the colorful and abundant fauna. The Straw Market provides ample opportunities for you to shop until you drop, as it is one of the largest markets in the world, open 7 days a week. Here you can find jewelry, woodcarvings, handmade clothing and home items and guava sweets. Don’t forget to bargain!
