Whether you’re looking for a place to relax, eat, hangout, or admire the late Bob Marley… Kingston has it all. Kingston is the capital city of Jamaica. Full of life and adventure, it’s easy to see why. Not sure what to do first? I’ll give you an idea of where to start. But don’t forget to make this adventure your own and check out the city for yourself!

A Quiet Morning Out

If you’re looking for a laid back tour of the city, here’s my recommendation. First, make your way over to the Bolivar Book Gallery. While the gallery is primarily a book store, it also serves as a venue for local artists. Take a look around and reflect upon the art. When you feel you’ve mused the eclectic artwork to your heart’s content, be sure to find a book or magazine to look through before you leave. Once you’re headed out of the gallery, head on over to the Café Blue for a refreshing treat. Grab a hot or cold coffee and a muffin to go, or stay a while and enjoy a macaroon or their take on Jamaican Bread Pudding. After you’ve satisfied your morning hunger, why not head to the beach or go shopping. Then, get ready for a great night out.

Taking On the Town

Even if you’re not one for nightlife, Kingston has a wonderful array of restaurants to appease any visitor. One spot I highly recommend is Alexander’s Restaurant. Whether you’re stopping in for lunch or dinner, this place has a relaxed atmosphere and great food. From tender beef to succulent pork, or even a pasta in a light cream sauce, Alexander’s menu offers a variety of food to meet the taste buds of any hungry traveler. If you’re looking for something a little more upscale, stop on over to the Columbus Restaurant for cuisine and décor inspired by the Santa Maria and her famous captain. While Columbus was a Spaniard, the menu is tastefully Italian bringing a touch of elegance to Kingston.  Let the Columbus Restaurant whisk you away on a delicious voyage fit for a king!
