Christiansted, Christiansted, St. Croix

Christiansted , St. Croix
U.S. Virgin Islands's insider take:

St. Croix's commercial heart—and the former capital city—was once a Danish trading center, and still has the colorful 18th-century buildings (painted bright yellows and blues) to prove it. You'll find your bearings easily, as every street slopes down toward the waterfront. Highlights include the Danish Customs House, Scale House, Government House, Steeple Building, and Fort Christiansvaern, a former Danish stronghold completed in 1749 that's open for self-guided tours. Looking to cool off while in town? Hop aboard the $4 ferry that departs in front of the Customs House for nearby Protestant Cay, a tiny islet about two minutes away that's home to a hotel, bar, restaurant, and Christiansted's only swimming beach.
