The first inhabitants besides the native Lucayans were mainly descendants of Spanish conquerors and freed slaves who made a living out of fishing and salvaging wrecks.  Click here to see the full Freeport travel guide on Travel42 »

Because Freeport and Lucaya have been constructed in the past 50 years, you won't find quaint old buildings or historic forts, although some historic homes and churches can be found in the smaller settlements east and west of the metropolitan hub. Visitors go to Grand Bahama Island not for the historical sites, but to shop, gamble, lie on the beach, and explore the underwater reefs and wildlife.  Click here to see the full Freeport travel guide on Travel42 »
