Pictures of St. Thomas, U.S.V.I.

Have you ever been to St. Thomas in the U.S. Virgin Islands? It's just beautiful! Do you wish you could have brought part of it home with you? I know I did when I went there.

This may not be the same as a return trip, but perhaps it's the next best thing. The artists, photoraphers, and designers of Zazzle have hundreds of pictures of St. Thomas that you can choose from to hang on your wall, to carry with you, to wear, and more.

If you haven't been there yet, maybe it's on your bucket list. You can travel there on a cruise ship, and spend the day, or fly in and spend a week. Why not start thinking about it now?

In the meantime, whether it will be your first visit there, or one of many returns, here are some images of St. Thomas to inspire your dreams of this paradise in the U.S. Virgin Islands.

We Enjoyed the Sky Ride

When my husband and I cruise the Caribbean, we don't always enjoy the same things. He's not a swimmer at all, while I'm a total water baby. I find it next impossible to resist the lure of the turquoise water, and he's not even remotely interested. So, we don't always do things together in the various ports.

However, St. Thomas has something for both of us, something we enjoy together. It's the sky ride to Paradise Point. The view from the top is absolutely breathtaking. You just want to stand there a keep taking it in. But just getting there and back via the sky ride is fabulous, too, as this video shows.

Facts About St. Thomas

St. Thomas Facts:

St. Thomas is one of the United States Virgin Islands.

It's located to the east of Puerto Rico. on the border of the Atlantic ocean and the Caribbbean Sea. Waves from Atlantic Ocean lap at it's northen shore, while you can swim in the Caribbean from the south shore of St. Thomas.

Charlotte Amalie, the territorial capital of the USVI, and a principal seaport, is located on the island of St. Thomas.

The island boasts a tropical climate, with an average yearly high temperature in the mid 80's to low 90's (F) and lows averaging in the 70's. This probably accounts, at least in part, for the fact that tourism is the largest generator of revenue for the US Virgin Islands.

Geographically, Saint Thomas is part of the U.S. Virgin Islands, which are a part of the Leeward Islands, which, in turn, belong to the Lesser Antilles.

About the U.S. Virgin Islands

The Virgin Islands of the United States are a U.S. Territory, and are a group of islands and islets, on the northeastern boundry of the Caribbean. The three most well known islands are Saint Thomas, Saint John, and Saint Croix, but there are also a number of other smaller islands belonging to the territory.

The residents are American citizens, but do not have a vote in Presidential elections, although they can vote in party primaries. They also send a non-voting member to the US House of Representatives. There is an elected Virgin Islands Legislature and territorial governor.

Since Saint Thomas. and the other US Virgin Islands, are part of the US, I always make my mid-cruise calls home from there, as it is not counted as an out of the country call!

      Lovely lens! We were briefly on St. Thomas -- flew there, then took a boat over to St. John for the rest of the week. Both islands are stunning to see!

      The iguana is my favorite too although they are all gorgeous. Hubby and I were in St. Thomas many years ago as a port of call. We loved it. Some day, I'd love to spend more than one day there.
