How to Spend 2 Days in Kingston

How to Spend 2 Days in Kingston

With two days in the capital of Jamaica, you have time to visit museums and historic sites and spend a day immersing yourself in the local reggae scene. Here’s one way to go about it.

Day 1: History and Culture

**Morning:**They say one of the best ways to experience a culture is through its food, and Kingston has a lot to offer when it comes to cuisine. Consider starting your day with a food tour, where you get to try local favorite such as jerk chicken and patties (filled puff pastries).

 

**Afternoon:**In the afternoon, head to Port Royal, at the end of Kingston Harbor, to visit Fort Charles, a 17th-century fort that now houses a maritime museum. Then make your way inland to the National Gallery of Jamaica, home to one of the largest collections of art in the Caribbean region.

 

**Night:**When the sun begins to set, make your way to Harbour Street, just up from the National Gallery, where there are plenty of restaurants for all budgets. If you’re in town on a Tuesday, don't miss the weekly Kingston Night Market to gorge on street food shop the handicrafts vendors.

Day 2: Reggae Roots

**Morning:**Devote your second day to learning the history of reggae. Start at the Bob Marley Museum in Marley’s old house, followed by a tour of the nearby Peter Tosh Museum. While each can be visited individually, full-day tours that visit both museums along with other reggae-related attractions such as Trenchtown are a better value.

 

**Afternoon:**In the afternoon, head to Trench Town, where Marley and other reggae stars got their start (you can learn all about it at the Trench Town Culture Yard Museum). If you’re not on a full-day reggae tour, it's recommended to visit this area with a guide or as part of a tour for safety reasons.

 

**Night:**If you want to continue your reggae experience into the evening, head to a club to listen to dub, roots, or dancehall music; the Kingston Dub Club is a popular option. Alternatively, stop for food and drinks at Usain Bolt Tracks & Records, a music and sports pub owned by the running superstar.
