Rawson Square information
Lonely Planet review
The heart of town for tourists is Rawson Sq, on the south side of Bay St. It’s a natural place to begin a tour of downtown Nassau. Guided walking tours also begin here. Nearby is a life-sized bronze Bahamian Woman statue , which honors the role of women during ‘years of adversity.’ She holds a small child. In the center of the square is a bust of Sir Milo Butler , the first governor-general of the independent nation, and a fountain pool with leaping bronze dolphins.
