If you're of a certain age and ready to escape to a tropical paradise, look no further than the Bahamas’ capital city of Nassau, where you can enjoy easy living amongst soft sandy beaches, turquoise-blue ocean water, and a relaxed island ambiance.
Your lifestyle and way of life can impact your health, well-being, and overall happiness, which is why it’s so important to set yourself up for a life you truly enjoy.
With ideal temperatures year-round, you can easily escape and find yourself strolling to waterfront dining and high-end shopping, exploring historic museums and cultural sites, and much more.
A Warm, Natural EnviRonment
Love nature? You can spend time at the Ardastra Gardens & Wildlife Conservation Centre, a peaceful 80 year-old retreat with 4 acres of lush tropical gardens, home to many native species of plants and animals, including the national bird, the colorful and exotic Caribbean flamingo.
You can spend your days among some of the best beaches in the world like Cable Beach known for its quiet, crowd-free stretch of sand, out sailing the Caribbean seas, and come home to enjoy stunning sunsets by the waterfront.
Enjoy Tax-Free Living
Considered a tax-neutral environment, the Bahamas offers valuable benefits with freedom from personal income, capital gains, withholding, inheritance, and estate taxes.
Plus, U.S. currency is accepted everywhere you go, so there’s no need to worry about exchange rates when you’re out and about.
EXPLORE HIstoric Nassau
If you’re a history buff or just want to learn more about your new home-away-from-home, head to the Balcony House, which is believed to be the oldest standing residence in Nassau. This 18th century Loyalist-style home was fully restored as a period museum in 1992 with stately furnishings and unique objects. Admission is free.
Located within walking distance of downtown Nassau is Fort Charlotte, the largest fort on the island, built in 1788. It has a moat, dungeons, and 44 canons.
Learn about the real pirates of the Caribbean at the Pirates of Nassau museum, located in the heart of old Nassau. This interactive Pirate experience is a great place to take the grandkids when they visit or have your own swashbuckling adventure.
Only a Flight Away
Another benefit of making Nassau your escape is its proximity to the mainland. Most major airports on the east coast offer direct flights. For those beyond the eastern seaboard, you can easily book low-cost flights to Florida to connect to Nassau, which is just 179 miles off the coast. We're also excited direct flights will be offered to and from Denver as of March 7, 2020!
It’s easy to slide into expat life here as the official language is English. But you will also experience a vibrant mix of English, European, Haitian, and West African cultural influences. Bahamians are known to be easy-going and welcoming, which makes the transition to island life that much better.
Many native and visiting artists have been inspired by the beautiful scenery and vivid houses of the Bahamas. Notable artists include Eddie Minnis, John Beadle, and John Cox. In addition, traditional crafts like straw work make for beautiful hats and baskets.

Seafood is certainly the main focus on many menus, but you may be surprised to find a diverse range of international cuisine.
One of the most iconic dining options in Nassau is Luciano’s of Chicago, which was once home to Sir Roland Symotte, the Bahamas’ first Prime Minister. The Tuscan-style menu serves pastas, steaks, and seafood with an exceptional wine collection in a waterside mansion.
You can experience fine dining with a Bahamian twist at the Sapodilla Restaurant with steaks, seafood, poultry, and vegetarian options. Reserve a private cabana with private butler service for special occasions.
