What is the Hip Strip and where is it located?
The Hip Strip is a section of Gloucester Ave. in Montego Bay which has many tourist-related attractions such as shops, hotels, restaurants, and bars. Located along this stretch are Doctor's Cave Beach, Margaritaville, Coral Cliff Casino and Hotel, etc... There is much within walking distance of many hotels here.
Here are a few places that are on the Strip. It is also a nice place to enjoy an early morning walk and sit and people watch.
One of the most popular places for eating and where all the local celebrities gather to gossip. The Pelican Grill.

Hey Flint! Check out the official MoBay site for some cool pictures and more on what to do in Montego Bay's Hip Strip: www.montego-bay-jamaica.com/bayimages.htm
I think we are staying in your neighborhood while we vacation down in MoBay Mar.1-Mar. 5. We're staying at Breezes. We, too, have read mostly negative reviews about our resort, and were a bit concerned, at first. But, this being our 3rd trip to Jamaica, We don't care if we have to sleep on the beach!! All we want to do is PARTY!!
I've heard that Margarittaville is a Blast(although the margarittas area bit pricey@$7). I'm sure we'll walk down there on a few occassions. As I understand it, lots going on down on the Hip Strip. Expect to be hassled by vendors, just be polite and tell them nicely "no thanks". If that doesn't work, say "shoo, mon". A woman I work with says this let's them know that you are not interested in whatever they are peddling.
If possible, try to make it over to Dunn's River Falls. It's about an hour and a half drive(one way). but it's a great way to see the country. You will be amazed...I guaranttee it!!!
Hey, we're going down at the height of Spring Break. Although most Spring Breakers go to Negril, I think it'll still be a party.
Think positive..........GET READY TO RUUUUMMMBLE!!!!!
