#60 of 186 in Things to do in Nassau
History and architecture buffs should not miss Government House, the stately seat of the Bahamas' Governor General. Dominating a 4 hectare (10 acre) estate, the flamboyant pink and white facade of this 1801 building represents a blend of local and colonial British and American traits. Check the house's schedule of events for the chance to experience the changing of the guards. Pay special attention to the display plaques outside the building detailing Bahamas history.
