As you walk into Front Street you instantly feel the metropolitan feel due to the bright and vibrant colonial buildings. From Yellow to blue buildings overlooking the promenade this place is a must-see for anyone.
There are plenty of hip bars and restaurants (yet we had to settle with KFC with the kids) to enjoy. The city is a business hub so you will see a lot of offices and banks along your way.
There are plenty of high-end clothing stores, jewelry shops, and places to buy rum but we enjoyed strolling down the many side streets to see the locals selling gifts and souvenirs.
This place comes alive during the summer months, each Wednesday evening the harbor nights festival takes place where you can enjoy local street food, gombey dancers and family activities on the bustling streets.
There is a ferry terminal located at the west end of Front Street where you can catch a ferry to the royal navy dockyard as we did. It’s a great day out with the kids. You can also get ferries all over the island including Southampton if you want to see the famous Horseshoe bay. There is a visitor’s information center near the terminal where they will help you with your inquiries.
Cost: $5 from Hamilton to Royal navy dockyard, kids $2.75
