I was wondering if there were any "must do's" in Nassau and Key West. Providing we can actually go to Cococay, we plan on that being a beach day, but are unsure of what we want to do in the other two locations.

Remember to be on your guard in Nassau, though...
PS: these Nassau people are some of the nicest, most polite, lovely people anywhere. Cheers!

POLICE are hunting two vicious robbers who held a group of terrified tourists at gunpoint and made off with their cash and possessions.
The victims, understood to be Americans from a cruise ship, feared for their lives as they were held up.
And it is thought the attack may have major repercussions on Nassau's tourist trade, with would-be visitors fearing for their personal safety.
The 11-strong group of men and women were attacked at the top of the Queen's Staircase on Sunday morning.
They had arrived in Nassau on a cruise ship and were on a taxi cab tour of the capital's historic sites when their pleasant visit turned to terror as they viewed the 66 steps.
Remember to be on your guard in Nassau, though...Yeah, well, they're not ALL polite. Just like anywhere. But the avg citizen is very nice and genuinely friendly. We've travelled all around the world and have learned to be cautious.
Nassau's "must do" is probably Atlantis. Just cab it over there and explore. If your girlfriend has never been to the straw market, it's a must do if she's a shopper. Key West has always been a great walking day. The Southernmost point and the "90 miles to Cuba" thing. Plus lunch at the original Margaritaville and I'm happy. While in Cococay, there is a very nice nature trail so you and your girlfriend can find a nice secluded beach to hang out on.Ditto here but my Lunch in Key west is Sloppy Joes... 1/2 Liquid Lunch 1/2 original sloppy Joe sandwich
