St. Croix, USVI - Island Tours
There are many ways of touring St. Croix USVI, an ideal situation considering that there are many things to see. Most visitors find time to look around the main towns of Christiansted and Frederiksted, with all their Danish charm, but there are also plenty of great spots in between to make a trip around St. Croix USVI - with a good map - last the entire day. You can organize a bus (about US$25) or taxi (about US$100) tour of St. Croix USVI if you'd like to have a guide handy to point out the island's hidden jewels, but renting a car and circling St. Croix USVI on your own is just as good, providing you've done a little research on what not to miss.
Christiansted is the economic, cultural, and historical heart of St. Croix USVI; no trip here would be complete without a few hours spent seeing the town's landmarks. Most of this city's colonial architecture dates from the 1700s, and it is home to the best preserved Danish fort in the Virgin Islands - Fort Christiansvaern. West of the city you'll encounter the best assortment of old plantation homes on St. Croix USVI, including Judith's Fancy, an 18th century sugar mill great house, and Little Princess Estate. Don't miss the Salt River Bay National Historical Park and Ecological Preserve, a collection of the diverse flora and fauna of St. Croix USVI, as well as the spot where Columbus landed on St. Croix USVI in 1493. Tiny Frederiksted, the second-largest town on St. Croix USVI, will take just a short time to tour, but the surrounding areas are rich in places to visit. Among the region's better sites - St. Croix Leap, a woodworking shop in the heart of the rainforest, the Whim Plantation Museum, and the St. George Village Botanical Gardens.
