Anyone with arthritis living in USVI?

My wife and I both have arthritis and we are wondering how living in the USVI would affect our arthritis. We currently live near DC and the constant weather changes in this area really affects both of us. The cold weather during winter isn't good for us either.

Does anyone have any experience or opinion on this? Thanks in advance.

No worries about constant weather changes or cold winters. Except maybe rain showers that normally just last a few minutes. Both my wife and I have arthritis and we own a condo on St Croix where we vacation often. Has not been an issue for us.

I don't have arthritis but many people I know do. There aren't many arthritis friendly accommodations since many places are historic so exempt from ADA. You need to ask if accommodation is ADA compliant which I think includes fixtures that are arthritis friendly.

We are not looking for arthritis accommodations, just wondering about the weather and humidity concerns with aggravating our arthritis.

Thanks for the input!

Floating in the Caribbean Sea is the best arthritis pain reliever in the world. Add a little comfrey salve before bed and all is well.
