Fort Charlotte, Nassau

3.6
Take a tour of Fort Charlotte, the largest of three forts in Nassau. Colonial governor Lord Dunmore had it constructed in 1789. Named after Queen Charlotte, wife of King George III, the fort never saw a battle. Today, you can explore the fortress walls, underground tunnels, cannons, and dungeons. Frequently, local actors dress up as characters from the time period, act out scenes, or sell handmade baskets and utensils.
