U.S. Virgin Islands
Concierge.com's insider take:
With restaurants, dozens of shops, and enough bars to keep you busy every night of the week, it's not hard to see why the U.S. Virgin Islands' capital city is the most visited Caribbean port of call. Though it's easy to spend the whole time snapping pictures of the gorgeous harbor—and ducking the cruise ship crowds—you'll want to visit attractions like Fort Christian, the oldest standing structure in the Virgin Islands (it dates to 1672 and now houses a museum); the Emancipation Garden and Market Square; and of course, the stores. Though they now stock everything from rubies to surf shorts, these restored trade warehouses once held rum, spices, and molasses.
