Escape the bustle and snowy winter weather of New York, by grabbing your own slice of heaven in Nassau. Travel to the airport by taxi, bus or train. After you take off from John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK), you'll land in the capital and largest city of the Bahamas, within just three hours. Nestled on the eastern half of New Providence Island, Nassau is a major Caribbean destination that's been luring travelers to its white beaches, and pristine azure waters since the 17th century.
If you're comfortable with left-hand driving, renting a car is the best way to navigate around Nassau. Most of the city's top sights are easily accessible from Bay Street, which runs parallel along the coastline. From there, you can tour the pink Parliament House, visit the animals at Ardastra Gardens Zoo, explore Bahamian art in the National Art Gallery, and sample some conch fritters in Potters' Cay. You can also catch the ferry or a water taxi to Paradise Island for snorkeling in Dolphin Cay.
Lynden Pindling International Airport (NAS) is the largest airport in the Bahamas with three terminals. Nassau was once a popular den for pirate ships, including the one commandeered by the infamous Blackbeard, but today giant cruise ships are the daily mainstay of its port. Thanks to its warm Gulf Stream currents, Nassau offers a beautiful semi-tropical climate for enjoying paradise year-round.
