“Hip Strip”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 1, 2012

It was cool strolling up and down the hip strip. Dodging the vendors and those selling stuff. Fun times and good bars, Red Stripe and Jamaican Rum and Red Bull Irie.

“The Hip Strip”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 21, 2012

A neat place to walk and talk with locals. Lots of shopping, bars, and restaurants to go into. Remember, they drive on the left side if the road, so you have to be careful crossing the street. It's a little backwards for us north americans.

“Fantasy craft market good shopping”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 20, 2012

Walking up and down Gloucester Ave is fun. You get to see the different shops also a few hotels, restaurants and bars. But when we go we like to stop by the fantasy craft market. If it's your first time a local might have to show you where it is because it's kind of hidden. It runs parallel to Gloucester Ave right behind the Buccaneer Bar and Grill and the convenience store. They have a number of local shops with handcrafted goods! Ask a local to take you during the day.
Also try and go on a non cruise- ship day as the prices should be lower due to less shoppers.
