In the heart of Nassau is the Ardastra Gardens & Zoo, created in the 1950's for visitors to enjoy and learn about local wildlife. The Zoo features more than 135 different animals, ranging from exotic jaguars to Madagascar lemurs. For particularly soft and cuddly animals, there's even a petting zoo! The gardens are home to unique island orchids and trees, and it's possible to wander for hours through the gardens just admiring the natural beauty.
Why go on a normal tour of the Bahamas when you can take a tour in a fun and environmentally friendly way! See the beautiful city of Nassau by bike — cruise along the waterfront, through the hotel district and through downtown — and yes, there are bike lanes! Bike tour operators include an accompanying tour guide who points out all of the notable landmarks, points of interest, as well as the best places to shop for island crafts and souvenirs!
