Independence Celebrations

The square was decked out with placards of all the Bahamian Islands including my beloved Aboco. Beautifully maintained and colonially pristine

Beautiful building. Went into town by the 10 bus. Walked around and shopped and saw this magnificent building. Impressive

Parliament Square in Nassau is historic and a scenic area to visit. The buildings & architecture are interesting and the place makes you feel like you took a step back in time.

This was probably the highlight of our visit to Nassau in the short time we were there. We were able to tour the Parliament Building were Parliament meets and actually sit in the room where political decisions are made for the government of the Bahamas.

The Parliament Square is very close to the ports where the ships pull in. It is a small historical corner that provides some history about the Bahamas. There are fountains, benches and other seating areas where you can take a break or just enjoy the sights. A nice little spot.

Located only feet from the cruise ship ports sits the center of the Bahamian Government with signs telling stories about previous leaders and historical moments. A great quick history lesson for any tourists!

The Independence celebration decorations and displays were beautiful. The buildings could use a paint job and repair. The grass needs to be cut. These recommendations would make this landmark attractive to tourists. Since we visited on a Sunday they were not open to tour.

Walking through Parliament Square, you can easily imagine the history and lifestyle of the early settlers. The area is well maintained and the colorful buildings are a delight.

This was interesting. There were huge pictures of politicians in the square. It was super hot the day we were there, so we didn't look at this area a lot, but it's right where the cruises dock.
