People on the Freeport forum will usually like Freeport better, while people on the Nassau forum will probably like Nassau better - to each his own. To me, Nassau isn't much of a vacation spot. Too hectic and stressful, too much traffic, and too few beaches. The exceptions being the private islands offshore, but then you have only a resort and nothing else. To me, Freeport offers a nice relaxing vacation but not TOO relaxing. There is plenty to do to fill a vacation, but no crowds, no traffic, and lots of great beaches, water and reefs.

Not crazy in Freeport during Spring Break, though Reef Village at Our Lucaya is Spring Break central - plenty going on there, MTV style. Plenty of parties and booze cruises going on. But not hard to get away from it, particularly at a private condo.
