    This holiday season, why not celebrate with the family in The Bahamas? Here, a “White Christmas” means gleaming beach sand, not snowfall.

    The Nassau Paradise Island Promotion Board has compiled six compelling reasons why “It’s Better in The Bahamas.”

    Warm Winter Weather

    Teeth-chattering subzero temperatures will be forgotten while sunning on the beach, or swimming, snorkeling and scuba diving in the warm water.

    Less Stress, More Relaxation

    Toss out that stress-inducing holiday to-do list and spend quality time with family while basking in the resort’s hospitality.

    Fun For The Whole Family

    Nassau Paradise Island has happenings for all ages, whether the person is an adventure-seeker, shopping enthusiast, foodie or history buff.

    New Holiday Traditions

    There’s no shortage of holiday-themed activities on Nassau Paradise Island. For example, Atlantis Paradise Island hosts Santa, conducts holiday competitions and crafts, and lights a Hanukkah Menorah.

    Colorful Caribbean Celebrations

    Then there’s the unique ways the holidays are celebrated in the Caribbean. Junkanoo is huge in the region, The Bahamas included. Parades, traditional music, costumes and dancing are just some highlights of the unique celebration.

    A Legendary Performance

    Singer-songwriter John Legend will be showing up to celebrate the holidays as well, performing at the Atlantis Imperial Ballroom on Dec. 30.
