Where is it?
Having being owned by 7 countries, St. Croix is known for its history along with beautiful historic architecture in the main towns of Christiansted and Fredericksted. In addition numerous hamlets and former plantations dot the island each with their own defining characteristics. You will find the island has a lot to offer in natural sights from mountains, sandy beaches, the ocean, tropical rain forests to grassy areas, agricultural farming and the production of rum. Sugar cane plantations and raising livestock was a former way of life till the 60's. Some of this still exists.
Our home is 3.5 miles to the West of Christiansted, on the North shore of St. Croix.
Among other important sights to visit would be Salt River National Park and Columbus Landing, Buck Island Reef National Monument, Government House in Christiansted along with the harbor front Forts in both towns, the restored plantation houses and grounds at Whim and Little La Grange and The St. George's Botanical Garden's, set within the ruins of a sugar cane plantation with its collection of rare and tropical flora.

There is a local theater group on the island which has performances throughout the year. Check to see if they will be performing as they are very talented. Also check to see if there are any art shows by local artists but you should also visit their galleries, as a lot of their work is extraordinary.
