Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas

Duty-free Capital of the World

One of the most visited cruise ship destinations in the Caribbean, the town of Charlotte Amalie is known around the world for its duty-free jewelry, perfume, and liquor shops.
Start off your visit on the 13th (Thu): contemplate the long history of Frederick Lutheran Church, kick back and relax at Morningstar Beach, and then stroll through Coki Point Beach. Here are some ideas for day two: glide peacefully along the water with SUP Yoga VI, then enjoy the sand and surf at Bluebeard's Beach, then get great views at Charlotte Amalie Overlook, and finally stroll through Magens Bay.

America's Paradise
Three main and a number of minor islands that make up U.S. Virgin Islands treat visitors to a blend of historical sites and picture-perfect beaches. Though officially American territory--nicknamed "America's Paradise"--these islands boast a mix of cultures that make for culturally enriching vacations. A no-passport-required status makes holidays in U.S. Virgin Islands extremely popular with American tourists, who flock to this tropical heaven to enjoy scenic beaches, outdoor activities, and tasty local food. The islands are also a duty-free shopping destination, which also makes them appealing to shopaholics from across the world.
