Virgin Islands Travel Guide
"If people are going to persist with an American dream, they may as well wake up to some of this. Though the US flag and Postal trucks prevail, the commonalities pretty much stop there. The laid-back vibe and some of the most magnificent coast on earth provide a taste of paradise and a bit of light relief to millions each year.

The peak tourist season is December to May, but this has more to do with the weather in North America and Europe than it does with the reliably balmy Virgin Islands' weather. It's therefore best to visit outside this period, when you can expect room rates to be two thirds of those charged during the busier months. An additional draw is that the calmer weather between April and August tends to keep the waters clearer for diving."

Caribbean Festivals
"are a tradition on each of the US Virgin Islands. The largest celebration is the St. Thomas Carnival which takes place at the end of April every year. With a steel band jamboree, calypso competition, local food stalls, arts & crafts, beauty pageants, concerts, and 'jump-up' dances - this is the biggest social event in the US Virgin Islands and the second largest Caribbean Carnival after Trinidad's annual celebration. The highlight of St. Thomas's Caribbean Carnival is the grand finale - 'Adult's Parade' - with fabulous costumes that soar above the participants with feathers and sequins everywhere. Combined with steel bands, floats and our famous 'Mocko Jumbie' stilt-walkers - Carnival on St. Thomas is an experience you'll never forget.

St. John carries on the tradition of Caribbean fun with its Summer Fourth of July Festival in the week leading up to Independence Day which also celebrates Emancipation Day (freedom of the slaves) on July 3rd.

St. Croix saves its 'jump up' for the end of each year with a Christmas and New Year's Three Kings Festival which starts in December and runs through January 8th."
