Kingston

3.8
The country's capital, Kingston offers all the excitement of a lively and storied city, while also housing the services and facilities travelers need to get around and see the rest of the island. The busy harbor and large mountainous backdrop form a frame around the city, containing the buzz and bustle of contemporary life. The downtown area features the ghettoes where reggae, dub, and dancehall began, with a number of historical sites and venues related to the island's musical heritage to be found on sightseeing tours of Kingston. The uptown area stands in contrast to the hectic downtown, with a wealth of hotels, period houses, and fine dining restaurants. Kingston is in Kingston Parish.
