I have traveled to the Bahamas numerous times. As a child living in Florida, my dad would “ship” me off to the Bahamas to spend the summer months and Christmas breaks with my paternal grandmother in New Providence (Nassau). Every summer, my grandmother would gather up me and my cousins and we would take the mailboat to Acklins...our homeland for the summer.
As an adult, I travel to the Bahamas at least twice a year. I live in the U.S. However, I have never visited major cities in the U.S. like New York, L.A. New Orleans, etc. Instead, I would rather travel to the Bahamas... full info
The Haynes Library in Governor's HarbourI went to the library for free internet. This historical landmark was built by Governor William Frederick Haynes Smith in 1897 and is the oldest Government Complex on the island. The upstairs has always housed a library and the downstairs held offices, including the former official residence of the local doctor. The building has been renovated through the efforts of a civic organization called "Friends of the Library" and is once again a Public Library. The success to date is due to the commitment from the Board of Trustees, Operating Committee, volunteers and the worldwide membership. Visitors, students, and locals can visit the library and have full use of the Internet cafe and materials.
Hours of operation: Monday to Saturday 9:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m. / Closed on Sundays and Holidays
