Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Rawson Square in downtown Nassau is a nice and very busy place. You must experience the vibe. Locals are very nice cool people.

The streets are congested with cars and scooters and the sidewalks bustle with tourists coming off the cruise ships so you must experience it yourself, so hard to put it all into words. We took the bus from our resort to downtown for $1.25 and riding on these little buses around the traffic circles was a great part of the adventure. It's a little rundown but we felt very safe and the locals were very helpful in getting us to where we wanted to go.

Met our guide at Rawson Square. Found the place with no trouble as it was very close to the site where we were moored. Helped make our day a good one.

Located not to far from the shops but a quiet little corner away from it all. Flower gardens and interesting buildings in the area to admire while sitting.

Downtown Nassau was pretty nice. Despite suggestions that Nassau was dangerous, it is no more so than any business district in any American, Canadian, or European city. Businesses want tourist money, and the area is geared towards foreigners. There is a very strong police presence, with cops walking the streets on foot 24/7. Even at night, the police are out in force making sure that tourists are safe while out at the bars. Police cars drive with their flashing lights on so tourists and would-be criminals alike know that they are close by. With a little common sense, any tourist should be fine walking around whenever they're there.

We used Rawson Square primarily as a thoroughfare from Woodes Rogers Walk and Prince George Wharf where all the cruise ships dock in Nassau, and Bay Street with it's many shops and restaurants, and Parliament Square (the historical/Government section), which is pretty much directly across the road from Rawson Square.
Rawson Square is not as big and open as Pompey Square at the other end of Bay Street/Woodes Rogers Walk - it has more shade and trees than Pompey Square, but is still pleasant enough. Afterall, it's an area of public open space next to a big shopping and tourist area, so offers a bit of respite.

Nice little shaded area away from the hustle and bustle of Bay Street. We grabbed some drinks, and stopped here to relax and cool off. Pretty much the only place where no one is trying to sell you something or braid your hair.

An obvious place to stroll through as one walks towards Parliament Square.

There is green planting that provides shade and plenty of green coloured wooden bench seating, which is ideal for taking a break.

The Churchill building is named for Winston Churchill and there is an important statue of Sir Milo Butler

I was not expecting much. So, I was not disappointed. This was the start of our two hour walking tour in Nassau. We took a picture with Sir Milo Butler and moved on.
