ST. Thomas US Virgin Islands

Your must-see for culture

St. Thomas, shopping capital of the Caribbean, draws hundreds of thousands of visitors each year to buy goods duty-free. Yet it’s the laid-back lifestyle, ear-to-ear smiles and joy of our people that make this island a must-see for culture- and experience-craving travelers. Sample island favorites such as fish and fungi, callaloo stew, rice and whelks, pates (savory handmade pies) and dumb bread at a local eatery. You will find locals eager to recommend the best places to eat, shop and explore, as well as introduce trusted friends to show you the island as only a St. Thomas native could. St. Thomas is home to Fort Christian, built in 1680, and the second-oldest synagogue in the Western Hemisphere, as well as Danish-French Impressionist painter Camille Pissarro’s childhood home. Our island is also known for scuba diving, golf courses, picture-perfect beaches and spectacular nightlife.
