Just 150 miles off the coast of South Florida lies New Providence Island with the capital city of Nassau. History was made and preserved here in Victorian mansions, cathedrals, 18th-century fortresses and The Queen's Staircase. Down Town Nassau is famous for its bustling Straw Market, duty free shops, jewelry stores, a variety of restaurants and the romantic horse-drawn surreys. Nassau is also the financial and business center of the Bahamas and very attractive for investors.
