As one of the top things to do in the Bahamas, plan your next trip to visit to Nassau Zoo, Gardens, and Conservation.
Ardastra Zoo lets you get up close to native animals (though you may want to watch children around the bigger, more dangerous animal cages).

It's located a short way from the main street in a neighborhood.
