1- Port Royal:
Once known as the 'Wickedest City on Earth,' Port Royal on the island of Jamaica was one of the largest towns in the English colonies during the late 17th century. It was a haven for privateers and pirates, such as the famed Sir Henry Morgan, due to its excellent geographic location in the middle of the Caribbean. From Port Royal, these buccaneers preyed upon and plundered the heavily laden treasure fleets departing from the Spanish Main. Unfortunately, the glory of Port Royal was short-lived. On the morning of June 7th, 1692, a massive earthquake hit Jamaica. The tremors rocked the sandy peninsula on which the town was built, causing buildings to slide and disappear beneath the sea. An estimated 2000 Port Royalists were killed immediately in the disaster. Many more perished from injuries and disease in the following days.
3- Bob Marley Museum:
Make sure you visit Kingston's most visited attraction, the Bob Marley Museum on Hope Road. The museum is housed in Bob Marley's former
home which he bought from Chris Blackwell in 1975. This was Marley's home until his death in 1981, the property also housed his Tuff Gong recording studio. In 2001 the Bob Marley Museum became a Protected National Heritage Site. The guided tour through Marley's home includes:-
The Medicinal Herb Garden Marley's gold and platinum discs Press cuttings of Marley's life Marley's bedroom and kitchen A recreation of the wailers "Wail 'n' Soul" record store in Trenchtown His stage outfits including his famous denim shirt The bullet-holed walls resulting from Bob Marley's attempted assassination An extensive photo gallery.
4- Devon House:
Devon House is one of numerous preserved historic mansions in Jamaica that depict the glory of days gone by. This house was built in 1881 by George Stiebel, a wealthy Jamaican who became one of the first black millionaires in the Caribbean on the strength of his mining interests in South America. In the grounds are craft shops, restaurants, a bakery and pastry shop. The venue is also famous for its delicious ice cream.
5- Emancipatiom Park:
After the devastating earthquake of 1692 in Port Royal, several English settlers recognized the enormous value of the Liguanea Plain in St. Andrew. Following the earthquake, a wealthy sugar plantation owner named Colonel Beeston sold 2,000 acres of the lands on the plain to the British colonial government for the re-development of Kingston. Before then, Port Royal had been the centre of Jamaica's bustling commercial activities.During the post-emancipation period and the decline of the sugar plantations, several Jamaicans living in the rural areas as well as immigrants from countries such as China, Lebanon, Syria and India, flocked the city of Kingston by the thousands in search of better working conditions and business opportunities.
