Clothing
While your on your Bahamas vacation, casual summer clothing is appropriate during the day any time of the year, but for the cooler evenings from December to February be sure to bring a jacket or sweater  . Most of the better restaurants, hotels and casinos require jackets for men in the evening. Although you may feel like wearing your swimming suite,  beach clothing is inappropriate on the streets downtown, in churches, restaurants and casinos. On the more reclusive Out Islands, dress codes are more flexible.
