2 DAY ITINERARY
1 Hire a cab or rent a car and head north from New Kingston up Hope Road to the Bob Marley Museum, with its red, yellow and green Rasta-painted exterior.
2 After the tour, the gift-shop is a must-see for clever gift items like condoms and rolling paper wrapped in the Rasta colors of yellow, red and green, Marley T-shirts made of hemp instead of cotton and Bob's Honey, produced by a hive of bees still buzzing after Marley himself found them in the 1970s.
3 Stop at historic Devon House for a dish of soursop ice cream in the shop that once housed the horse stables.
1 Start out the morning with a contemplative visit to the 100-year-old sand-floor Shaare Shalom, Jamaica’s only synagogue.
2 Then head to the streets surrounding St. William Grant Park, called the Parade and bustling with activity during the day. National Heroes Park is where the “corn ladies” sell their homemade treats to hungry locals and tourists. Browse Coronation Market, the largest and busiest outdoor market on the island.
3 Later, have an authentic Jamaican jerk meal at one of Kingston’s informal eateries: Scotchies Tree, Chelsea Jerk Centre or Rib Kage Bar & Grill.
