When you finally climb the Queens Staircase (see separate reviews in TripAdvisor), you'll find Fort Fincaslte. And towering above the fort (excuse the pun) is the water tower. I have no idea whether it is open to the public and whether you climb to the...More

Carnival Platinum member probably visited this place 20+ times with our annual family group travel. This is a typical stop on every tour. It use to be free and a few years ago they started charging a $1.00. Cool to walk into the dungeon like...More

You can cross off three sites in nothing flat in Nassau and also get a step workout in. First, climb the 65 limestone steps to the top of the Queen's Staircase. Then, cross over to Fort Fincastle on Elizabeth Avenue for aerial views of the...More
