The Queen's Staircase, Nassau, the Bahamas

The Queens Staircase, Nassau, bahamasJust across the way and a short walk from the Water Tower, this is a stone stairway of 65 steps – one for each year of Queen Victoria’s rule. The staircase climbs 102 feet to Fort Fincastle and the Water Tower. Alongside the steps, water cascades to a pool below, causing a mist full of rainbows in the sunshine. At the bottom of the steps, a walkway goes between high stone walls. Tropical plants and trees line the way. There, you’ll find a dozen concession stands selling local crafts and tee-shirts. And then you’re back on the main highway once more, only a short walk from the Water Tower and the parking lot.
