  • The Sam Sharpe Square is in a bustling location and is a great memorial to a local hero. It's worth a visit to see and read about his accomplishments. 
  • Learn about Jamaica's history and culture at the two gallery/museum spaces in the building in the Square. 
  • It is the town center and is rather busy with people but the town in pretty ghetto so it was not that nice. It was the real montego bay and you see what the normal life is though.
