THE ST. THOMAS ALLURE ST. THOMAS, USVI

If you’re an American Citizen and looking for a Caribbean getaway, St. Thomas is one of the few tropical destinations you can enjoy without the requirement of a passport. One of the top duty-free destinations in the northern Caribbean, high end shopping is a huge highlight of this getaway, and shopping in Charlotte Amalie is plentiful! As you peruse through the numerous shops and savor the fine dining, you will be in awe of the many sights to see! From seaplanes landing in the bay to the rainbows that seem to appear out of thin air, you’ll want to have your camera ready for everything. The most picturesque place to visit is the Mountain Top Viewing Deck located on the north side where you can experience a near 360 degree view of the island before heading down to Magen’s Bay Beach for a little R & R. Be sure to take a dip in the crystal clear waters for which the Caribbean is famous and take a peek into the colorful underwater world with your snorkel or scuba gear. When the adventurous side kicks into gear, take a hike through the numerous trails, or explore the island in a jeep – topless! (the jeep of course!). Climb over the hills and mountains throughout the day and find yourself over in Red Hook for true island nightlife, complete with live bands and locals where you’ll make lifetime friends. Be sure to spend a day in St. John, just a quick ferry ride away. Donated to the National Park Service by Laurance Rockefeller in 1956, the majority of St. John is a protected national park. The beauty of the coral reefs, shorelines, and sugar cane mills will not only make you believe there were actually 8 wonders of the world, but will also have you looking for sugar cane growing wild along the hillside.

Welcome to the Caribbean, St. Thomas style.
