Must see spots in Kingston
The calmness of the waterfront today belies what is used to be like, busy with traders, ships always arriving, and a constant buzz about the place. The area still has its charms with the wooden carvings of the Victoria Crafts Market and the National Gallery displaying artwork by famous local artists. One of the main shopping streets is King St which goes from the waterfront up to the Parade.
The Parade is another bustling area, so called because the colonial soldiers used to parade up and down there. There is a park providing welcoming shade and the chance to see statues of some well-known Jamaicans. There is also the National Heroes Park, built following independence in 1962.
For reggae fans, head for 56 Hope Road where Bob Marley lived and recorded many of his hits. There is also the Bob Marley Museum where you can learn more about the man and his music. Nearby is the Hope Botanical Gardens, 150 acres of tranquillity and explosions of blooms in the summer.
