Go to the Zoo: No matter how young (or young-at-heart!) you are, animals are always a delight to see. 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.
Try Something Different For Lunch: Everybody loves a meal at the Fish Fry at Arawak Cay! This colorful, lively row of restaurants is popular with locals and visitors alike and it’s a great spot to introduce your kids to the flavors of The Bahamas with conch fritters, cracked conch, or conch salad. For kids (or grownups) who aren’t adventurous eaters, there are plenty of familiar options too, like burgers, fries, and chicken fingers.
