The three islands, St. Thomas, St. Croix, and St. John, are surrounded by turquoise water and sparkling sand. St. Thomas is the most populated island and is the location of Fort Christian. The fort is to be found near the town of Charlotte Amalie and dates to the 17th century. It is the oldest building to survive from the colonial times on the islands and is now a museum. St. John is the most remote of the islands. The island is home to a national park and popular with guests looking for a peaceful holiday.
The St. Croix Cruzan Rum Distillery is worth visiting if you're staying in the US Virgin Islands. The distillery is open for both group tours and spirit tastings. Christiansted is located on the St. Croix waterfront and is listed as a historical site. Many buildings from colonial times have been restored. Visitors can tour the old Apothecary Shop, the Steeple Museum, the Danish Customs House, and the old State House. The Salt Bay National Historic Park and Ecological Preserve is also on the island of St. Croix. A diver’s paradise, the preserve offers coral reefs and a submarine ‘graveyard’ in addition to a large mango forest. The park is dedicated to keeping the history of the Virgin Islands alive.
