My partner, two puppies and I are moving in March. We are conflicted on which Island to move to. At first, Ct. Croix was the final decision but after reading about all of the islands, I just cant seem to pick. We like solitude and beautiful beaches, the idea of a grocery store or hardware store sounds good too. lol Suggestions please!

Here is a (very) crude comparison, to give you an idea. To refine it, you have to come to visit all three islands.

STT = New York City
STX = Upstate New York
STJ = The Hamptons

I can rattle off the names of half a dozen people who were born and raised here, have excellent professional credentials and have tried unsuccessfully to come back and give back to the "their" community only to be shunned. If I as a mere "transplant" can come up with that number then I'm sure that number is infinitely greater.[/quote]

STT is like New York City, but without all the stuff.

Nonsense. Yet another who's never been outside Charlotte Amalie or the main drag in general!

It was joke, like "This weather is like a hurricane, but without all the wind and rain."

Accepted! But it's no end irritating to keep hearing similar comments NOT made in jest, so one gets a little testy! 😀

Moving back to OP's question.
STT will offer a better opportunity for jobs, things to do, access to nearby STJ, Jost Van Duke, Tortola, Virgin Gorda in the BVI and surrounding offshore cays and islands. There's lots of sailing and diving. Good luck.

But then you don't have any money 'cause on STT it jumps out of your pocket fast. And when you do have money, your friend's boat won't start. BTW it's always better to use someone else's boat (OPB=Other people's boats).

It jumps out of your pocket just as fast on STX with less opportunities to earn it.

Yes, there is something about dem STT friends who appear to be incompetent in operating their boats. It's either their gas tank is empty, or they forget to open the tank air vent, or the fuel line is pinched. That's why Crucians are better friends than St Thomians..
