  • St. Croix, the largest of the U.S. Virgin Islands, has two main towns: Christiansted and Frederiksted. Both offer a variety of historical sights along picture-perfect beaches.
  • Christiansted on St. Croix pays homage to its Danish settlers with examples of Danish colonial architecture throughout the north side of the island. The 18th-century Fort Christiansvaern and Government House, the Old Danish Customs House and Post Office, and the Steeple Building are the most popular sites. Alexander Hamilton’s house is also a worthwhile tour.
  • Don’t miss the unique chance to sample the delightful tastes of local fruits and vegetables sold at the outdoor market on Company Street. Also, you may want to take this opportunity to shop here rather than along the bustling streets of St. Thomas. Many of the shops are the same and less crowded with visitors.
  • Frederiksted is typically quiet except when cruise ships arrive. The town’s Victorian architecture, as well as the town’s main shopping area, can be seen along Strand Street. Another trip well worth the time is Fort Frederick, which was built in the 1750s and the sight of the declaration of emancipation for slaves in the islands.
  • Head north of the city only to end up in a lush, tropical rainforest populated with wild parakeets, mountain doves and hummingbirds. Take a drive up the hillside or hike the many mapped trails leading to this popular destination. If you are the outdoors type, you can opt to sign up for a bike tour.
  • Buck Island is a fascinating day trip from St. Croix with pristine beaches and exciting diving and snorkeling. The island has a hiking trail with picnic tables dotted along the way and an underwater park with guided snorkeling trails.
  • Buck Island Underwater National Park is a must see for snorklers. It even has its own snorkeling trail. Travelers are taken by  ferry boat to an island one mile northeast of St. Croix to view the aquatic life.
  • Heritage trail will take travelers to all the historic sites and landmarks on St. Croix. Travelers can be directed using a combination of a trail map and road signs.
  • Golfers will want to visit and play the Bob Joyce designed par 70 golf course at The Bucaneer Resort. Other courses on St. Croix include the Carambola Golf Course which is used as a LGPA course and is a winner of Golf magazine’s gold medal.
  • Try your  luck at the Divi Carina Bay Casino on St. Croix
  • Take advantage of the duty-free shopping of Charlotte Amalie's Boutiques on St. Thomas.
  • The International Game Fish Association Reports 24 world-record catches from U.S. Virgin Islands.
