- The Best Time To Visit - The wonderful thing about The Bahamas, and many other locations all around the Caribbean, is that there isn’t really a bad time to visit. If you arrive in the summer months, you’ll be able to enjoy the warmest temperatures for swimming and sunbathing, but you’ll also have to deal with the crowds. Fortunately, conditions in The Bahamas stay sunny and warm even in spring, winter, and fall, so you can visit at any of these times of the year too and have a fantastic time.

- Visiting Nassau - Nassau, the capital of the Bahamas, is located on the island of New Providence. It's the perfect place for people who want to get a big taste of Caribbean life, as it's home to a large percentage of the Bahamian population. You'll find a lot of bars, street vendors, and stores to explore at Nassau, as well as beautiful colorful buildings, gardens, a zoo, a huge casino, coral reefs, and more. It’s easy to see why Nassau is such a popular stopping point for Caribbean cruise ships, and it’s one of the best places to go on your day trip from Fort Lauderdale too.
- Visiting Freeport - Those looking for a little more peace and quiet on their day trip to the Bahamas from Fort Lauderdale are better off choosing Freeport over Nassau. Situated on Grand Bahama Island, Freeport is still a big and busy city, but it's not quite as populous or hectic as Nassau, so it's a nice place for couples to enjoy a little intimacy or families to have some relaxing fun. There are many miles of soft, sandy beaches at Freeport, and nearby Deadman's Reef is one of the best places for snorkeling, despite its rather scary-sounding name.
