Travels & Trips:

The Atlantis - Bahamas

Atlantis logoI'm sure we all know the legendary island Atlantis, that Plato referred to in 9,600 B.C. "There are many theories about where Atlantis was—in the Mediterranean, off the coast of Spain, even under what is now Antarctica. "Pick a spot on the map, and someone has said that Atlantis was there," says Charles Orser, curator of history at the New York State Museum in Albany. "Every place you can imagine."

Well there is definitely an Atlantis Hotel & Casino Resort in the Bahamas and in Dubai. This beautiful facility is all about water whether it be the ocean, the pools, the Marina or the water parks (Aquaventures). Check out this link to get a glimpse.

The range of accommodations and dining options suit everyone's tastes. While you can lounge in the sun and relax very easily, the range of activities and things to see on property will make you get out of your lounge chair. There is golf, tennis, a beautiful spa, swimming with dolphins, sea lions and stingrays. Along with a rock climbing wall, and many different lagoons and clear underwater tunnels that allow you to see marine life up close and personal.

I'm not sure I've even scratched the surface of the properties offerings. Check it out for yourself!
