St. Croix, Virgin Islands
Take a tour of St. Croix, Virgin Islands, and you can't help but get the feeling that this place is more Old World than New. Larger than both St. Thomas and St. John put together, escaping significant urban development has allowed for much of the colonial Danish essence to be preserved on St. Croix. Virgin Islands tourists go to St. Thomas for the shopping and nightlife, to St. John for its parks, but they come to St. Croix for something more intangible - a slower pace, European charm, and a romantic patchwork landscape of rainforest, scrub, and rolling pastoral greenery. St. Croix is also home to beautiful beaches and good clear scuba and snorkeling waters, including an area designated as the only underwater National Park in the entire US. Just over fifty thousand friendly residents of St. Croix Virgin Islands relish in these uniquely West Indian features while enjoying a measure of American practicality and familiarity in their everyday lives.
