About U.S. Virgin Islands Attractions
There is much more to the Virgin Islands than just beautiful beaches and duty-free shopping. The colonial-era cities of Charlotte Amalie, Cruz Bay and Christiansted offer historical landmarks, hidden alleyways, and museums and galleries. Out in the countryside there are numerous lookout points from which to photograph the spectacular panoramas, plus aquariums, golf courses, distilleries and hiking trails. Outdoorsy types can explore the mangroves by kayak, see sea turtles on Buck Island, or take a bicycle tour on Water Island. And of course there are literally hundreds of boat charter companies that can take you snorkeling, fishing, diving -- or just partying -- on the azure waters of the Caribbean. Whether you're on island for a day or a week, seeing the sights is just a matter of hopping on a tour or excursion, renting a car, or just following your nose. The islands are safe and easy to navigate, and begging to be explored.
