Bob Marley Museum
Bob Marley's House
Though few venture out to Kingston, the capital and hub on the eastern coast of Jamaica, reggae and music fans should make the day trip—Port Antonio is closest—to visit Bob Marley's former home, now a museum. The tour of this worldwide star’s life and history lasts about an hour and a half, and includes a 20-minute video presentation followed by guided talks along the way. You'll likely learn more about Bob than you ever did, as you view enlarged news articles on the star, his multiple awards, guitars, and even his bed with a Lion-engraved headboard.

Bob Marley's Getaway Home
During an afternoon driving around the hills of Jamaica, we stopped for lunch and ended up walking on sharp rocks to what is purportedly the shell of Bob Marley's beachside getaway. It had seen better days, but the view of the ocean (facing the opposite way) was still breathtakingly tranquil.
