Immerse Yourself in a New Culture.
Our carnivals immerse visitors in the U.S. Virgin Islands’ rich culture, celebrating everything that makes us unique. But beyond these seasonal events, you’ll find echoes of the past in our islands’ 18th-century Danish colonial architecture, as well as Danish street and estate names. Outside of our towns, the islands are carved into estates with colorful names like Neltjeberg, Fredriksdal and Marienhoj. Learn about local fruits and traditional dishes (gennips and Kallaloo soup, anyone?) at farmers markets and family-run restaurants. And explore our heritage at plantation museums and ruins, massive forts and historic houses of worship.
