Nassau is the capital ,and largest city, and commercial hub of the Commonwealth of the Bahamas. The small city entertains literally thousands of tourists everyday. It also doesn't take long to realize that the main revenue stream comes from the tourist industry.
Capital center area of downtown.
It is a popular stop with Royal Caribbean Cruise line. My experience was just that , a day stop on a cruise. Once my feet were on shore I was amazed with the cultural diversity that exists there. A wonderful mix of old world and modern living.
One of the many back ally's that are thriving with businesses.
My fiancé and I joked that once the tourists are gone for the day they roll the streets up at 5pm. A literal ghost town after 5 , with exception of the popular watering hole and restaurant Senior Frogs.
Impressive main atrium Inside Atlantis
Our trip that day did include a trip to Paradise Island by boat to the impressive looking structure Atlantis. It's higher end suites can range anywhere from $10,000 to $25,000 a night.
The old world structures are rich and vibrant in an array of colors.
Being a photographer I immediately fell in love with the colors and structures that make up the cities charm.
This photo taken towards the end of the day shows how Nassau slows its pace.
Any trip for me always includes finding a neighhborhood church I join st marvel at some of the beauty in some of the older churches.
