Go to the Zoo: No matter how young (or young-at-heart!) you are, animals are always a delight to see. So head to Ardastra Gardens & Zoo to explore four acres of picturesque gardens and observe dozens of animal species in action. The small zoo is great for little legs to explore, and one-of-a-kind experiences are scheduled throughout the day, such as feeding lorry parrots and marching with flamingos on parade.
Saddle Up: Older kids (12+) and parents can unwind with a leisurely horseback ride along a pristine Nassau beach at Happy Trails. No riding experience is necessary, and it’s a fantastic way to take in the beauty of The Bahamas and connect with animals, too!
Step Back In Time: Make learning fun for the whole family with an historic day out in Nassau! First up, visit the Pirates of Nassau Museum, where an interactive replica pirate ship and interesting exhibits provide an in-depth look at the age of piracy in The Bahamas. After lunch, check out one or all of Nassau’s forts. Dating back hundreds of years, each of the forts has a unique story and kids will love using their imaginations as they explore the structures.
Waterpark Adventures: There are plenty of ways to make a splash at one of Nassau Paradise Island’s waterparks! Grab a tube and float the day away as a family at the lazy river at Aquaventure at Atlantis or their many kid-friendly pools. Baha Bay at Baha Mar has plenty of options for children with Stingray Cove for the older children and Turtle Beach for the toddlers and babies to make a splash. Wet and wild fun awaits the entire family at Fins Up at Margaritaville Beach Resort, Nassau. Here, you can hang ten in the surf stream, float down the lazy river, or zoom down the waterslides. The best part is all of the waterparks offer day passes to add a little extra excitement to your vacation.
