Count Basie Square is a nice place to be during the week-end. It is located right in the middle of Port-Lucaya where all the shops, bars and restaurants are. Some diners and customers usually end up in the square anyhow where there is music and dancing during the week-end. People of all ages take in the ambiance.

If you like to see empty stage and listen to some cool sound and beats then this is a place to be on a day side, night side there is actually some local band performs

Made a stop here. Not too much to do except a little shopping. 20 different shops and all sell the same thing. Go figure.

Been to Freeport many times, love walking around the square...the best deep fried lobster, and really good conch. The shoppes and bar are great in this area, plus the people aren't as pushy

This was a stop of our cruise, it is colorful and nice, many stores were closed so could not see much of it. There were other 2 cruises leaving, I guess locals sold enough lol. Still good spot to do a little walk. On the good side note, I had to use public restroom and was very clean!!!

Live music in the marketplace. This is a fun place to experience tourists and locals mixing it up. Kids love the dancing. Mostly live music with local musicians.

Never seemed to be anything happening here when we went through! I thought there would be local musicians and entertainment especially in the summer!

They have music in the square at night. It was kind of fun to eat dinner and then walk to the square and relax and have drinks while listening to the local sounds.
