Activities to Do Around Kingston on Your Jamaican Visit
Kingston is full of activities for you to experience while youíre in Jamaica, from walking tours to festivals and from water sports to museums. As far as festivities go the best way to find out what is going on is through the local daily paper, ďThe GleanerĒ itíll have a list of events going on while you are down there. In 2007 Kingston will be holding the Cricketís World Cup, which is sure to bring in a lot of entertainment and tourists. March is a big month for festivals thatíll include a 3K walk, street dancing and then in April thereíll be a Road parade and a concert at the National stadium. To make sure that you exercise off the extra calories consumed at one of the local restaurants with their tempting array of local cuisine, there are walking, hiking and biking tours. These are a great way to explore the city.
Blue Mountainís peak is at 2,256 m. If you are looking to hike up to the summit with a group, prepare yourself to rise before the sun comes up. Blue Mountain treks begin around 1am, so book a nightís sleep nearby at Pine Grove, Whitefield Hall or Wildflower Lodge. If hiking really isnít your thing, Blue Mountain Bicycle Tours will also take you up through the mountains. The best time of year to do this particular activity is from December thru April since it isnít wet during these months.
Always make sure you are wearing comfortable shoes and a warm jacket, and just because the sun doesnít seem to be shining doesnít mean you should leave the suntan lotion at home. If none of these sounds exciting to you why not try your hand at snorkeling, diving, dancing, shopping, cruising or partying. There is fun to be had in Kingston during your Jamaican stay, all you have to do is decide what you want to do and then find where itís at! .
