When it comes to souvenir shopping, you can't go wrong with a visit to Market Square. Located in the heart of St. George's, Market Square welcomes visitors and locals alike looking for handmade crafts, fresh produce, and, of course, spices. One TripAdvisor user calls the spice market the "best smelling market that I have ever been to!" However, some recent visitors warn that the vendors can be fairly aggressive.

You'll find Market Square at the foot of Young Street. Weekends—Saturdays specifically—are the best times to go, as the marketplace bustles more than usual.

#1 St. George's

Many travelers that have wandered the narrow streets of St. George's say that it's almost like walking through an oil painting. The vivid, brightly painted houses exude an aura of colonialism. In fact, Grenada's capital city—located on Grenada Island's southwestern shore—has earned the unofficial title of the most beautiful harbor town in the Caribbean.

Devote an hour or two to exploring St. George's marina (known as the Carenage), where you'll find plenty of restaurants serving up local cuisine with a side of spectacular views. But there's much more to this city than its postcard-worthy appearance. St. George's serves as a great place to get a whirlwind introduction to Grenadian culture. Discover the islands' colonial history at Fort Frederick and Fort George and learn about local spices at Market Square.
