Built in the 1960s, Freeport (the main city) makes Grand Bahama visibly different to the other islands. Wallace Groves an American started the Grand Bahama Port Authority (GBPA) with a government grant of 50,000 acres of Crown Land, which eventually increased to 149,000 acres. Under the Hawksbill Creek Agreement, the GBPA built houses, churches, schools and roads. Later a deep-water harbour was dredged for oil tankers followed by an airport, hotels and casino. Freeport/Lucaya is very American in style and unlike anything else in The Bahamas. Built for tropical fun, the area boasts wide tree-lined boulevards, top hotels with casinos and colourful shows, world-class shopping, superb beaches and a multitude of holiday activities including five golf courses.
