Fodor's Expert Review Rawson Square

Nassau Plaza/Square

This shady square connects Bay Street to Prince George Wharf. As you enter off Bay Street, note the statue of Sir Milo Butler, the first post-independence (and first native Bahamian) governor-general. Horse-drawn surreys wait for passengers along Prince George Wharf (expect to pay about $30 for a half-hour ride through Nassau's streets). Often-overlooked is the nearby Randolph W. Johnston's bronze statue, Tribute to Bahamian Women. The prime minister meets with his cabinet every Tuesday in the building that lines the eastern side of the square.
