To whom it may concern,


Hello. I am soon-to-be college graduate in the Philadelphia metro area who is planning on moving to either St. John or St. Thomas in 2020. I was wondering what might be some fun activities people engage in when they're off work in the Virgin Islands? What places do you frequent? What restaurants do people go to? Any places I should stay away from? I'm trying my best to educate myself about the VI more before I make the move. I'm pretty flexible in regards to different atmospheres and concentrations of people, so that's not too big of an issue. Any help would be appreciated, however. Thank you!

There's always lots to do if you're so inclined.

most bars and restaurants have live music, there are many annual events that attract lots of people, lots of sailing, diving, snorkeling, beaches to explore both on STT and STJ which has a National Park and hiking trails, etc. and is a 30 minute ferry or barge ride if you take your vehicle over.

You will need a car to get around as public transportation is very limited.

There's also lots of volunteer organizations looking for help.

It is expensive to live here so be prepared and do your research.

I'm not from STT or STJ but STX. The best thing to do is come down and see for yourself. Peoples opinion of where to "stay away from" varies. Drive around stop in someplace talk to the people and see what the vibe is.
