When you think of The Bahamas, you are most likely envisioning Nassau and Paradise Island. This is home to the famed Atlantis Resort, with its pink towers connecting with an arch (that is actually a penthouse suite affectionately known as the Michael Jackson Suite, as it was his favorite). Your kids cannot miss commercials for Atlantis: dolphin encounters, water park slides, a walk-through aquarium.

But the island is more than just Atlantis. This is also the capital of the Bahamas, where its house of parliament resides; where the Queen and the British royal family come to stay when they visit; where pirates buried treasure and conch is featured on most menus.

It is easy to get to Nassau, whether by cruise ship or flight, and the visitor's bureau often offers Bahamas resort packages and deals and airfare specials to entice families to its soft pink-sand beaches and warm, beautifully blue waters.
