Well I can't speak for others ,Nassau for me is just as safe as any town in the states .
Having the pleasure of visiting Nassau quite often I feel as safe as in Myrtle Beach. My wife and I have taken the Jitney as well as cabs with no problems. Just the two of us .
As with any town or island ,just keep your eyes open and be alert to your surroundings .
There was a terrible shooting today of police in the state of Washington, maybe no one should go there.
You just have to take the best care of yourself you can, no matter where you go.
I have to agree with these three posters!! You never know where something can/will happen...I live near Omaha, NE and when I was on a cruise over a year ago there was a shootout in a Von Maur department store in the mall in Omaha. I still go to that mall. It was a terrible tragedy that happened there and people died from the shootings but no one could have thought it would happen. We can not simply run and hide from tragedy we have to learn from it, adapt, and move on. Things happen everywhere anymore, we are not safe at school, home, on a cruise ship, off a cruise ship, no where. We just need to watch out for ourselves like the poster said, take the best care that we can.
It doesn't matter where you vacation. There is ALWAYS dangers to one
level or another.
As a season travel it your responsibility to do research and be careful no mater
where you are at.
