Highlights of Kingston
Kingston is the capital of the Caribbean island of Jamaica. Indeed Jamaica is famous for its rum, world renowned athletes and reggae.
The actual creation of Kingston only came about because of an earthquake that destroyed Port Royal in 1692. Survivors moved to Kingston to escape the disaster. Prior to that Kingston was only farmland. Land owners of Port Royal were given the opportunity to buy up to the same acreage in Kingston. Along with some form of city planning, main streets were constructed and business began to flourish. With businessmen preferring Kingston with all its lours than administrative Spanish Town.
Today Kingston is a flourishing capital. Construction of new shops, hotels and restaurants paved way for the new Kingston, abolishing the old.
However when you think of Jamaica, you can not hlep but think of reggae. Synonymous with this is Bob Marley with his colorful head net and reggae style music. Producing hits such as “One Love”, “Buffalo Soldier” and “No Woman No Cry” his reggae style 1970’s music blended into an electrifying rock hybrid style of music. You can visit the Bob Marley Museum at one of the singer’s former homes in the city center. Oddly enough although he became an international super star, albeit a number one hit had always alluded him.
Ever topical Bob Marley also produced a song called “The Emancipation Song”. Jamaica was firmly on the slave route from Africa to the Americas, and you can visit Emancipation Park to see its representative statue at its entrance. The naked man and woman are looking skywards representing their freedom.
One of the most iconic sites in Kingston is Devon House. More a pre-colonial mansion than a house, you can dine and shop here. You can even rent the property for your functions. Now a World Hertage Site, it was the home of Jamaica’s first black millionaire, George Stiebel. Ironically he made his wealth as an entrepreneur through transport between North and South America, as well as owning a gold mine.
Apart from touring the mansion to see its period furnishings, one thing you should do is have an ice cream. It is famous for it, with many exotic flavors such as dark Devon stout. Devon House ice cream is listed as number four in the world’s top ice cream parlors according to the National Geographic book “Food Journeys of a Life Time“. In addition, you can also buy food delicacies at the Commissary, cotton clothes at the Gimi Cool Cottons or sandals at D’Nex Step. Let’s say Devon House is a must-see if visiting Kingston.
Jamaicans are also famous for its athletes. Consistently in the finals of the sprint, Usain Bolt is the most famous of them all. He has won eight Olympic titles. Indeed much is attributed to the fact that 70% of Jamaicans have the strong ACTN3 gene, which facilitates sprint athletics. Not to be out done, Jamaican females also hold many sporting honors. Merlene Ottey won 14 World Championship medals. Moreover she won the female Jamaican sportswoman of the year 13 times between 1979 and 1995. Incidentally whilst she represented Jamaica for 24 years, she obtained Slovenian citizenship and represented Slovenia from 2002 to 2012.
In conclusion, Jamaica is a fascinating place to visit. Make it extra special by booking a Holiday Houseboy to help look after you.
