The US Virgin Islands are the country's slice of Caribbean paradise that you can explore without a passport for beachfront fun, history, and thriving nightlife. Each of the 3 islands offers something special that you won't want to miss out on. St. Thomas is the luxury capital of the islands with high-end shops and restaurants available. St. John, on the other hand, is better suited for travellers interested in vibrant nature, and romantic partners wanting to explore thousands of acres of parkland.

The third island of St. Croix is packed full of fascinating history including colonial forts and plantations. This is also the island where you'll find a popular nightlife scene and the legendary Cruzan Rum Distillery. The West End is also home to some stunning restaurants that offer more traditional fare than continental Americans might expect, but you'll find local favourites like johnnycake and their signature pate, which is a dish consisting of meat or fish wrapped and deep-fried in dough.
