  I didn’t find it surprising the the economic development was tied to tourism survey. It’s pretty clear that we need to diversify our economy so we don’t so heavily rely on tourism. Which will be har...

  I wouldn’t recommend a scooter. But they do have driving schools on St Thomas that could also teach you. My son uses a driving school on St Thomas and he took a classroom class and after a couple o...
