US Virgin Islands - St. Thomas, St. John and St. Croix

Hello,

I didn't find a thread about the American virgin islands, so I decided to start one. I will be relocating to St Thomas this year and I am already in love with the islands and its people. I would love to hear from locals and everybody...

Some information and pictures to start the conversation:

The United States Virgin Islands (abbreviated USVI; also called the US Virgin Islands or American Virgin Islands), officially the Virgin Islands of the United States, is a group of islands in the Caribbean and an unincorporated and organized territory of the United States. The islands are geographically part of the Virgin Islands archipelago and are located in the Leeward Islands of the Lesser Antilles to the east of Puerto Rico and west of the British Virgin Islands.

The U.S. Virgin Islands consists of the main islands of Saint Croix, Saint John, and Saint Thomas, and many other surrounding minor islands. The total land area of the territory is 133.73 square miles (346.36 km2). The territory's capital is Charlotte Amalie on the island of St. Thomas.

Previously known as the Danish West Indies of the Kingdom of Denmark–Norway, they were sold to the United States by Denmark in the Treaty of the Danish West Indies of 1917.They are classified by the United Nations as a Non-Self-Governing Territory, and are currently an organized, unincorporated United States territory. The U.S. Virgin Islands are organized under the 1954 Revised Organic Act of the Virgin Islands and have since held five constitutional conventions.

In 2010 the population was 106,405, with current estimates putting the population at 107,000 (July 2018), most of whom are of Afro-Caribbean descent.Tourism and related categories are the primary economic activities.

For better or worse, the US Virgin Islands are not covered in the United States section. They are covered in the Caribbean section, due to geography. You should see a thread for the US Virgin Islands in there.
