Is there much of a social life in St Croix and Where is the best area to live if your job is in Christiansted?

I'm thinking of moving to St Croix for work purposes and wondering what is there to do on any average day? I am a single woman in my 40's and I am curious as what there is to do? I live on a small island now but never lack an exciting moment and can always find someone to paddle board with or hit the beach. Are there meet ups groups on face book? Any information will be appreciated . Thank you

Plenty to do. Mowing your yard, washing, waxing and fixing your car. Working on your house. Spending time in lines almost everywhere. Working a second job to pay your bills. Working out a lot so that you can stay healthy since you might not have insurance. Plenty to do!

When you get bored with all the fun chores there is always the beach, diving, swimming, snorkeling, hiking, diving, volunteering at the animal shelter, golf, fishing, diving, and I imagine there are races at the horse track, I've never gone. There is also diving, and a dive club. And just about once a week there is a holiday, some with celebration. And the Triathlon in May if you're up for it. And gambling at the Divi, slot machines downtown, oh boy.

You can live West, East, and South of C'sted, I wouldn't recommend North so much. Depends on whether you are looking for house, apartment, condo, yard, on the beach, up on a hill, etc. Many folks have a small rental unit attached to their house. Anywhere on island isn't all that far from C'sted.

I moved here as a widow in my 40's in 1995. Found plenty to keep me busy. Friends made quickly. Even met my current husband here in '95. Age isn't as much a factor here as what activities you might enjoy. I'm mid 60's now and have good friends of all ages. If you are active, you'll find plenty of fun things to do.

If you have a dog, many places down on the boardwalk are dog friendly so you can walk up and down the boardwalk and meet other dog owners. Making friends is easy here.
you can rent a kayak/paddleboard from Tamarind reef hotel and go out to green cay, make friends with someone who has a boat (don't buy one) and go out to Buck Island, go to Sandy Point, one of my favorite beaches in STX (only open Sep to Apr though), play volleyball at Tamarind Reef beach and rainbow beach. The last Friday of the month there is Jazz in the Park by Christiansted Fort. Jump Up (street party) 4 times a year. The Christmas Boat Parade Not a jumping nightlife but perfect for someone "our age". Yeah I love it here.
