Don’t underestimate the islands of the Bahamas. I last visited the Bahamas last year before Thanksgiving, for a last minute quick getaway. I was having a stressful time at work and needed an escape to relax and reboot. I picked the Bahamas as the go to destination instead of my usual easy escape, Florida. I was desperate to feel the sand under my feet and be a lazy beach bum. After all, a beach is a beach and the Bahamas has plenty of those. But of course, I also explored the city and enjoyed it as well as I enjoyed the beaches.
