"Your personal assistant in travel"
The U.S. Virgin Islands are located in the eastern Caribbean,
just 1,100 miles southeast of Miami. Surrounded by the clear
blue waters of the Caribbean, our average temperature ranges
from 77 to 86 in the winter and 83 to 86 in the summer.
Each of our three major islands possesses a unique character
all its own.
St. Croix's Danish influence is perfect for visitors who prefer a
laid-back experience. The historic towns of Frederiksted and
Christiansted offer quaint shops, charming pastel buildings, refreshing cultural diversity. From horseback riding
near eighteenth-century sugar mills to playing golf on one of the island's three scenic golf courses, you're sure to
find something to suit your tastes.
Two-thirds of St. John is a national park; its comfortable pace is perfect for enjoying the island's world-renowned
beaches such as Trunk Bay, Cinnamon Bay, and Salt Pond Bay. A nature lover's favorite, St. John offers hiking,
camping, specialty shopping, and breathtaking views. If you take just a few hours to visit this island, you'll find it
well worth the trip.
St. Thomas boasts one of the most beautiful harbors in the world. As the most visited port in the Caribbean,
downtown Charlotte Amalie offers elegant dining, exciting nightlife, world-class, duty-free shopping, and even
submarine rides. While it's full of energy, especially in Charlotte Amalie, this island also possesses numerous
natural splendors, such as stunning views of the Caribbean from 1,500 feet above sea level.
The U.S. Virgin Islands provides the perfect destination for traditional vacationers, adventure travelers, and
corporate meeting planners. Our year-round warm temperatures, first-class accommodations, exciting leisure
activities, and professional business atmosphere offer something for everyone. Visitors to St. Croix, St. John, and
St. Thomas will discover the unrivaled convenience and distinct personalities of our islands that set us apart from
other Caribbean destinations. Whether you're looking for a quiet, secluded inn a few steps away from a white sand
beach, a vacation packed with kayaking, scuba diving, and hiking, or luxurious accommodations a stone's throw
from world-class golf and shopping, the U.S. Virgin Islands has exactly what you want.
Corporate meeting planners will appreciate the ease of arranging meetings in the U.S. Virgin Islands. While visitors
from the U.S. should carry proof of citizenship, no passports, currency exchanges, or inoculations are required.
Major airlines offer daily service into the territory, including direct flights from U.S. cities such as New York,
Chicago, Atlanta, and Miami. As a U.S. Territory, tax deductions for meeting and conference costs on the U.S.
mainland are available on our islands as well. Easy shipping is available through the U.S. Postal Service, Federal
Express, and United Parcel Service. Hotels and resorts on each island can provide accommodations to suit each
The U.S. Virgin Islands have daily, non-stop flights from New York, Newark, Baltimore, Atlanta, Miami, and Fort
Lauderdale. Connecting flights are available to and from Chicago, Los Angeles, Dallas, New York, Miami, and
Atlanta via the San Juan hub. In addition, there's connecting service from Canada, Europe, South America, and
the Far East. Commuter service between San Juan and St. Croix and St. Thomas is also available.
Our unique culture and history reflect the West African, Danish, Spanish, Irish, Polish, and German heritage of
those who have made the U.S. Virgin Islands their home since the late 1400s. The rhythms and lyrics of Virgin
Island music-including calypso, cariso, soca, reggae, and steel pan melodies-are colorful reminders of our past.
Virgin Islanders also express themselves in painting, drawing, sculpture, and photography. The great
Impressionist Camille Pissarro is just one of the Virgin Islands' distinguished artists.
Island traditions come alive during celebrations throughout the year. The Three Kings' Day festival on St. Croix,
St. John's Fourth of July celebration, and St. Thomas' annual Carnival are just three examples of the dozens of
special events that take place each year. However, on any given day, visitors can catch a glimpse of the unique
culture of the islands.
The history of the U.S. Virgin Islands is as rich as its people. Columbus discovered the United States Virgin Islands
on his second voyage to the New World in 1493. In the centuries that followed, the islands were ruled by the
English, Dutch, French, Spanish, Knights of Malta, and Danes. During World War One, the United States bought
the islands from Denmark for $25,000,000 in gold.
