A costumed Show for the Tourists
When a cruise ship docks here, of which there are over 200 annually, they locals dress up in costume and walk around beating drums and indigenous musical instruments. It is load, and flashy, but also colorful. The noise can be unbearable while you are trying to concentrate on buying trinkets. It keeps up for a couple of hours for each ship coming into harbor

When I was mopeding around, the local people were so nice. Everytime I stopped to check out the map, at least one person stopped to ask if I needed directions. The accuracy and detail of their directions was amazing!
Absolutely do not bring...
Absolutely do not bring anything live or that has lived with you if you want to get through Customs without a lot of hassle. We had a plastic orange that had held juice and the Customs officer made us unload the whole plane looking for produce. I felt like a drug smuggler.
The people in Grand Bahama are...
The people in Grand Bahama are very, very friendly. You would find locals that go out of their way to help. If you are looking for a place and you stop to ask a local they will happily help you out and give a detail explanation. My friends and I were debating which route to take to head to West End and this local guy pulls up in his vehicle and explained us the way to West End without us asking for any help, that was just one of the nicest things you can treassure from your travel experience to Grand Bahama. Locals often greet you on the streets and often ask if you are enjoying yourself on the island. It gives you a feeling that they do care, visiting Nassau, Harbour Island, Spanish Wells and Paradise Island, I must say that Grand Bahama Island has the friendliest people in The Bahamas.
