    I was just there a few days ago. Are you staying in Atlantis on the property? I came in on a cruise and rolled there in my chair... like 2 miles. You have to book transportation in advance as there is only 1 van with a lift on the island to get from the ship to Atlantis!!!

    I came as a visitor so seeing the attractions were very limited. Security will let you only go so far. The place is absolutely gorgeous. It's very scenic so take a camera. It has a huge casino if you like to gamble and their man-made lagoon with water sports looked great. Of course, with our disabilities, it's hard to partake in a lot of these things. At your level tho, I think there's a ton of things you can do. You can hail a cab to take you anywhere, but I wouldn't recommend leaving the resort as Nassau is nothing but a garbage dump. Here are some good links to things to do.

    Here are some reviews of Atlantis..

    How long are you guys staying? I think I'd get bored longer than 4 days, but you'll be able to do more than I could.

    For the hundreds of millions they have in that place, if you're in the main tower and are shopping in the shops, come back with your report on the cheap elevator they installed for us to get up a flight of steps. It's comparable to this Spectralift below but goes up 3x as high.. very cheesey, IMO.

    Some pics I took. The 1st is the other side of the bridge. The 2nd is typical parking on the sidewalk and having to do a lot of rolling in the street. The rest are of the man-made lagoon.
