outside Nassau, Nassau
I remember that when I was tired of walkingI took a bus - they call jitneys - a great way to see most of the shore in an inexpensive way. The driver was ver friendly ansd gave me a real tour about the island.
Fondest memory: I missed have a better camera to take better pictures. Well, something to miss, right?
Favorite thing: This is the view back towards the cruise terminals from Fort Charlotte. The soldiers here in those days must have been dying of boredom in spite of the great views they had - I'm sure they never imagined people would pay tons of money just to come see such sights! :-)
Favorite thing: The first bus we hopped was to get out to Fort Charlotte, which was an old British Fort during it's days as a colony. Don't be expecting historical sites to be as well preserved as they are in other countries though. Remarkably, even though it appeared the preservation efforts were minimal, they still had cannon with royal insignia and casting marks... and the walls still bore the inscriptions of soldiers and units from the 1830's to the 1850's.
Stay in Cable Beach. That way you're pretty much close to everything. I love the fact that for $0.75, you can take the bus that can take you all the way through downtown Nassau and back. Also, in Cable Beach, you are at the hotel strip (well, besides Paradise Island). You can pretty much walk from one hotel to the other with no problems.
Fondest memory: I was usually either at the beach or in a club. Or when I'm bored, I simply just go to the Crystal Palace Casino (also in Cable Beach - walking distance from most hotels) and chill there.
From the moment I landed and disembarked from the plane to walk to the terminal a warm sea breeze heady with the scent of flowers was there to great me.
Fondest memory: The greeting from customs was warm and I felt as though I were a million miles away from the problems and weather at home.
