Explore St Croix, the largest of the US Virgin Islands. Christiansted is one of the two major towns showing early Danish influence.
Fort Christiansværn (dating from 1774), Government House, the Old Custom House and Art Gallery and the wharf area are among its historic sites. Outside of Christiansted, on West Airport Road, is the Cruz Rum Distillery where visitors can taste the islands' rum and watch it being made.
On the way to Frederiksted is Whim Greathouse, portraying plantation life in the 18th century. Frederiksted is also of Danish origin and has a tropical rainforest nearby. St George Village Botanical Gardens and Croix Aquarium are both worth a visit.
