Go to the Red Hook area and rent a boat. Take that boat to Yost Van Dyke (A B.V.I. so you'll need your passport) Anchor your boat just offshore and wade up to the Soggy Dollar Bar. Order a cold beer or a Painkiller and enjoy the view. It's a must-do when in the area.

How is St. Thomas and St. John’s after the Hurricane last season? I was fortunate enough to spend a week in St. John’s the year before the big storm wiped it out. It was a great vacation.

Headed to St Thomas in 2 weeks. The option to have a chef prepare dinner at the house each night would be close to $100/person/night.

The per person fee (depending on the menu item) was already expensive and then they added several incidental fees. And everyone has to agree on the same meal each night.

So instead, the Supreme High Commander decided we'll just eat out each night where I will also likely pay $100/person...but everyone will have more options.

Let me think... wife + 3 kids + 2 friends of the kids + me... yeah...I'm gonna be broke.

Had a business trip to ST. Thomas a few years back.. We stayed at the BlackBeard up the hill. Had court there the whole week. Was very nice place...
Be careful about certain parts of town. We were warned about going out after dark in certain areas.
Take ferry over to St John...Very fun place..We were there during Carnival - it was so much fun -- AND WORK PAID OR IT !!! LOL !!!

One of my most favorite places in the world but the cleanup and rebuild is still far from done, but a few places to stay and I think that Foxxy's and the Soggy Dollar are open.

I like the Red Hook area. I haven't been since the hurricane though. We went diving with Blue Island Divers which I would not miss if I were going again.

Never got to go out on it but there is a real PIRATE SHIP that stays in the bay....I think it can be toured... Looks very cool sitting there out the window of your room to see a large Pirate ship in the bay...

Bushwackers !!!! Drink a bunch of them.......Eat the food...everything tasted awesome !!!
