Kingston is the capital of the island of Jamaica, lying on its southeast coast. In the city center, the Bob Marley Museum is housed in the reggae singer’s former home.
Far from the north coast resort towns, Kingston is Jamaica at its most authentic. Kingston is a sprawling city of contrasts spread between the east coast and the Blue Mountains. Another great aspect of Kingston is its diversity reflected in disparate neighborhoods, from the wealthy northern suburbs to the less affluent downtown.
Travelers can discover the spirit of One Love at the Bob Marley Museum, or sample delicious ice cream at Devon House. Nearby, the former capital of Spanish Town offers insight into the area’s history.
Things To Do In Kingston
For Bob Marley fans, a trip to the Bob Marley museum and Nine Mile is a must! Following the museum, a trip to Devon House, a colonial-era mansion, will combine heritage, park facilities, restaurants, and shopping. Plus, critics say that you can find the best ice cream in the world at Devon House Ice Cream shop.
Another authentically Jamaican experience is Botanical Gardens & Zoo which showcases native flora and fauna. Lastly, Northeast of the city, the Blue Mountains are a renowned coffee-growing region with trails and waterfalls.
