A trip to the Bahamas any time of year promises to be packed with time well-spent working on a glowing tan on the beach, coastal walks complete with scenic beauty and opportunities to get out and explore the water by boat. The islands that make up the Bahamas are loved worldwide for their natural beauty and warm weather, but beyond aesthetics, the Bahamas is rich in both culinary tradition and cultural heritage. When you’re in the mood to be part of a celebration of both, make your way towards the islands in March when the Great Bahamas Seafood and Heritage Festival rolls into town.
