About Angela A
Lives in Louisville, Kentucky
Since Oct 2012
I love to travel. I am not happy unless I am planning a new adventure, returning to a beloved city, or blazing a trail to somewhere I have never been before. My favorite places in the world are London, New Orleans, Disneyland, and Salem, Massachusetts. I also love to write about everything and anything to do with travel. I have penned travel guides for TripAdvisor on Jamaica, Nassau, Charleston, Savannah, Nashville, Punta Cana, Kissimmee, San Juan, Panama City Beach, Louisville, Cincinnati, Key Largo, Biloxi, Tampa, Cleveland, Clearwater, Branson, Pigeon Forge, and Phoenix.

Points of Interest & Landmarks
The Craft Market offers many items that just scream 'Jamaica.' While some visitors may be expecting more from the market, it is conveniently located, and worth stopping by to stock up on all your souvenir needs.
Visit Gloucester Avenue, commonly known as the 'Hip Strip,' for plenty of shopping, dining, and people-watching! This street can get very busy, and is always action-packed.
Visit the Appleton Estate to find out about the history of rum in Jamaica, and take a sip or two of the estate's very own product. Plus, you can purchase it at discounted prices here if you want to take a bottle or two home with you.
Cornwall Beach is right off the Hip Strip, and can be easily reached on foot. It's a great place to cap off your first day with gorgeous sunset views.
Rose Hall Great House should be at the top of any history lover's list of places to visit in Montego Bay. Guided tours offer a glimpse into the lives of the slaves at the Great House and the cruel Annie Palmer, who met her end on this very property.
The Reggae Jerk Center is right on the beach, and the jerk chicken is out of this world! (Do not leave Montego Bay without a taste of their delicious homemade sauce.)
The Shoppes at Rose Hall have something to entice any shopping addict! With a great mixture of both duty-free and regular shopping options, you can browse the day away here, or simply dash in for a few essential items.
If you want to get in a round of golf during your trip, this is the place to do it! The views are unsurpassed, and the cool breeze from the ocean is always refreshing.
Seagrape Terrace is consistently voted one of the top restaurants in Montego Bay, and it is easy to realize why. The outdoor setting is almost unbelievably beautiful! The restaurant offers a buffet as well as an a la carte menu.
Doctor's Cave Beach is Montego Bay's most well known beach, and tourists and locals crowd its white sands daily. The crystal clear water is perfect for snorkeling, swimming, and other water activities.
The Twisted Kilt is located right next to Doctor's Cave Beach, and serves up Irish fare, but with a twist. It is a perfect spot for lunch!
Ahhh... Ras Natango Gallery and Garden is a very unique Montego Bay attraction. It offers gardens, a bird sanctuary, a gallery, and views like you wouldn't believe.
This town square is the focal point of downtown's history, and an interesting place to ponder. Sam Sharpe was a Baptist Minister who opposed slavery through violent protests, and was subsequently tried and hanged. These protests were instrumental in the abolishment of slavery in Jamaica.
The Pelican is located across from the ocean, right at the beginning of the Hip Strip on Gloucester Avenue. This restaurant serves a delightful mix of both Jamaican and American dishes, and is frequented by both locals and tourists.
