St. Thomas, St. John, and St. Croix - the three islands known to many as the U.S. Virgin Islands, and the reason millions of travelers head to the Caribbean every year. The laid-back lifestyle of the islands and crystal blue waters keep travelers flying to the U.S. Virgin Islands every year. Thanks to its close proximately to the U.S., the islands welcome nearly 2 million visitors a year by way of St. Thomas flights, charter flights to St. John or St. Croix, or cruise ships.
Travelers booking St. Thomas vacations will find it's not only the most visited island, but also the most overdeveloped of the islands. St. Thomas boasts some of the best beaches, resorts and dining and there is no shortage of things to do in this Caribbean island hotspot. In contrast, St. John is the smallest of the U.S. Virgin Islands and is a protected landmass – more than 60 percent of the land is controlled by the U.S. National Park Service. St. Croix is the largest of the U.S. Virgin Islands and while it’s not as serene as St. John, it’s more relaxed than St. Thomas. Tourists flying to the U.S. Virgin Islands should hop over to St. Croix for its stimulating nightlife – the introduction of gambling to the island has brought more tourists, and more money, to the economy.
