 The Us Virgin Islands consist of the well-known tourist destinations of the islands of St. Thomas, St. John and St. Croix. St. Thomas is known as the shopping paradise of all the Caribbean islands and plays hosts to many crowds of tourists. St. Croix is quieter than St, Thomas, but boasts that it has the most stores. St. John is the least developed, but it does have two hotels. Most of this island is a US National Park. While St. John is in the Atlantic Ocean, both St, Thomas and St. Croix are in the Caribbean

The Breakfast Club on St, Croix, the Galleon House on St. Thomas or the St. John Inn, on St John, will provide you with wonderful delights for a wonderful vacation.
