St. Andrew's Kirk, Nassau, Bahamas:
St. Andrew's Kirk, Nassau, Bahamas
Located on New Providence island, Nassau is the capital, and by a very considerable margin, the largest city in the Bahamas. The population of Nassau, was 210,832 as of the 2000 census - over two thirds of the entire population of the Bahamas.

Nassau is a popular tourist destination, with a tropical climate, beautiful beaches, and a historic colonial architecture, especialy in the harbor area. Additionally, on December 26th (Boxing Day) and January 1st (New Year's Day), the city is host to Junkanoo, a loud, colorful and musical street parade (first made internationally famous by its appearance in the James Bond movie, Thunderbird). Visitors can reach Nassau by using Lynden Pindling International Airport which lies only 10 miles (16 kilometers) from downtown Nassau, and which offers daily flights to the USA, the UK and Canada.

  • Used Book in Good Condition
Product Description:
This Hunter Travel Guide stimulates readers' senses immediately with its lively description.... Fully indexed, the guide delivers an insider's view to what the authors call 'the most hospitable islands in the world.' Not a typical guide, the book is as much fun as it is resourceful, with a chatty writing style... great suggestions for sites to visit when travelers are in the mood for something unusual or spontaneous. -- Today's Librarian. "Nassau & The Best Of The Bahamas Alive! provides all the destination-oriented information needed to make the best of a trip to the Bahamas, from a survey of restaurants and hot fishing holes to best places to stay, shop, and enjoy the variety of the islands. An excellent take-long tote." -- Midwest Book Review. This exciting new addition to the Alive! series takes you to the cruise ship capital of the world in style! "Dawn to Dusk" sections focus on the best daytime delights, such as terrific watersports, sightseeing, golf courses, beaches and fascinating museums. "After Dark" sections take you to the best nightclubs, piano bars, cocktail lounges and beach cookouts. Hundreds of places to stay and eat are profiled in detail, based on repeat visits by the authors. In-margin icons allow you to see at a glance which activities are being discussed. Maps. Feeling "alive" is commonly used to describe the state when you are energized, excited, full of life! And that's exactly what these books inspire -- a feeling of eagerness to explore and discover. Alive! Guides are a refreshing change from the "same-old" guidebooks. They are written for the savvy traveler who is looking for quality and value in accommodations and dining, with a selection of activities to fill the days and nights. Each book's introduction covers the basic travel information, including climate, when to go, what to pack, history, package tours, geography and -- for overseas destinations -- currency concerns and health issues. Daytime pursuits are detailed in the "Sunup to Sundown" section, which cover the best beaches, walking tours, driving excursions, nature trips and sightseeing. Shopping plays a big part, with tips on how to barter in island crafts markets and where to find the best deals. And if you're looking for some fun when the stars come out, turn to the "After Dark" section, where you'll find descriptions of the best discos, cigar bars, theaters, movies, nightclubs and happy hours! Alive Guides focus on hotels and restaurants, with descriptions based on repeat visits by well-traveled authors. Establishments are rated with the unique Alive rating system, so you can find one to suit your taste and pocketbook. Particular attention is given to shopping in the exotic regions, with details on local artists, cut-price designer clothing and the best values on duty-free goods. Tips on what to do from sunup to sundown include tours, sightseeing, sunning, watersports and the best beaches. Piano bars, jazz clubs, places to meet people and even gay clubs are listed for nightlife. Transportation to, from, and around the area is also covered.
