The US Virgin Islands are the perfect destination if you’re looking for a tropical getaway full of gorgeous beaches, turquoise water, and swaying palms. This group of three islands just southeast of Puerto Rico is a haven for sailors and beach bums alike, but before you go, here’s 17 things you should know about the USVIs:
1.The US Virgin Islands are a US territory, which means that if you’re an American, you don’t need a passport to travel there.
2.There are three main islands in the USVIs: St. Thomas, St. John, and St. Croix.
3.Thomas is the main island and most people’s entry point into the Vis. The cruise ships dock in St. Thomas. It’s also where you’ll catch the ferry to St. John or a flight to St. Croix (although there are some direct flights from the mainland).
4.Although it’s a US territory, they drive on the left side of the road here.
