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!
