Freeport, Grand Bahama

History:

"Freeport Bahamas, the capital of Grand Bahama Island, has grown to be a popular destination in the Caribbean. While the island has a long and rich history, the history of this city only goes back to the mid-twentieth century. When Grand Bahama was still a developing island, it was known as a land of smuggled goods especially during the American prohibition."

Gain More Background About the Country

History:

"For centuries, our islands captivated settlers, traders and invaders, while our shipping channel enchanted pirates who quickly discovered all of our great hiding places."

Fun Facts and Trivia:

"During the glacial period, the sea level was as low as 250 feet below its present level. During this time, the limestone that forms the islands was eroded by acid rain, which ended up cutting hundreds of systems of vertical and horizontal caves that are now below the islands."

Customs and Culture:

"Bahamas are known for being friendly, outgoing and informal. However they also maintain a sense of decorum and are very polite. Hospitality is an extension of this and they like to get to know people, say hello to strangers and invite people into their homes. Sharing a meal is the most common way to build a relationship."
