Pastel buildings with red-tile roofs bring a picturesque charm to Christiansted, St. Croix's largest city. This former capital of the Danish West Indies is sandwiched between the beautiful coastline and rolling green hills, and features the Christiansted National Historic Site, where Fort Christiansværn, the best preserved Danish fort in the islands, is located. Hotels, restaurants and scuba diving companies are in plentiful supply.
Most people visit the Virgin Islands when winter doldrums set in; but there really isn’t a bad time to visit this little slice of Caribbean heaven. No matter what time of the year you plan your vacation, expect temperatures in the 80s (upper 20s Celsius) during the day and 70s (low 20s Celsius) at night. However, be sure to pack an umbrella next to your swimsuit since tropical showers are fairly frequent (don’t worry: they blow over so quickly you’ll barely notice). The weather gets more intense during hurricane season, which lasts from June to November, so if you’re traveling at this time of the year, you might want to get cancellation insurance in case a hurricane hits before you leave.

Christiansted's charming historical streets are the perfect setting for fine dining, shopping, historical sight-seeing or a night on the town. Try to coordinate your trip with one of the four "Jump-Up" festivals that take place each year in this vibrant island city.

Some great little restaurants located on the boardwalk/waterfront of the town center. Lots of little shops to poke into and meander around the historic streets.
