Instagram Travel Thursday: Grand Bahama Island

Sometimes you just need to escape.

Time to fly.
In March, my mom and sisters and I did just that. We went to the quieter and more affordable of the Bahama Islands, Grand Bahama Island. We enjoyed five days of relaxing,  amazing views, eating, shopping and catching up with each other.  It always takes some planning, but it's worth it to take a moment with family and/or friends and make a memory.  One of the great things about travel is getting everyone out of their element!

  4. It always amazes me when I hear about Grand Bahama being a tourist destination. Last time I was there was about 22 years ago and it was definitely not a very exciting place. Looks like a lot has changed!

    1. It is still a quiet island and we were looking for an affordable place to stay and just walk to a few things, so it was perfect for us. They've lost a lot of tourists with several flights being cut to the island so its definitely low key. The casino at the resort was a ghost town, so I hope things pick up for them!
