As the clock strikes midnight on December 31, 2012, people around the world will ring in the New Year. Wouldn’t you like to be in some magical destination that is full of life and culture to create lasting memories as you begin 2013? A great New Year’s travel destination is Nassau in the Bahamas. Leave the snow and sleet behind and plan your jet charter trip to Nassau today.
From December until April, there is little chance of rain in the islands and travelers can expect temperatures from 75 to 85 degrees. Blue skies above, white sands below – what’s not to love? Worried that you haven’t made your travel plans yet? With our wide range of operators to meet your private aviation travel needs, you’ll be sipping a cocktail on your balcony in no time.
One of the highlights of spending New Year’s Eve in Nassau is that you’ll get to experience the Junkanoo. Part festival, part parade, part masquerade party, this combination Mardi Gras and Carnival event is authentically Bahamian. Thousands of costumed performers make their way along the parade routes entertaining spectators as they go. Lively music and beautiful costumes make this event a must-see during your jet charter trip to Nassau.
The Junkanoo celebration begins on December 26 (Boxing Day) at 2 a.m. and is held again on January 1 at the same time. While each of the Bahamian islands holds its own Junkanoo, the largest celebration is in Nassau on New Providence Island. To really experience the festivities during your jet charters excursion to Nassau, get the best views of Junkanoo upstairs on Bay Street or on one of the street-side bench seating options, which can be reserved.
Another must-see part of Nassau is the thriving Downtown area. A hub for a variety of activities, this area is visited daily by thousands of people looking to shop, dine and sightsee. Bay Street and the Woodes Rogers Walk are popular spots as well. Another major landmark is the British Colonial Hotel, a luxury five-star hotel on Nassau’s only private beach. Originally built in 1901 and rebuilt in 1922, the British Colonial is called the “Grand Dame” of all Nassau hotels. It sits on the site of the Old Fort of Nassau which is located near the Greek Orthodox Church and Christ Church Cathedral.
You might also want to visit the Pirates of Nassau Museum or some of the boutiques, restaurants and clubs scattered around Bay Street. Another Nassau landmark to experience is the Pompey Museum or Vendue House.
For accommodations, travelers can visit Cable Beach, which is Nassau’s hotel district. There are many dining options in this area as well as you explore Nassau during your jet charters trip.
