It’s time to escape to the Virgin Islands. We know new passport and renewal processing could take a while as the state department deals with a backlog. Fortunately, a passport isn’t required for U.S. citizens visiting the U.S.V.I. Once you arrive, the glories of the Caribbean are at your fingertips.
Avid divers have coral reefs and caves to explore under the clear blue waters. Adventurers will find national parks with backcountry perfect for roaming by jeep or on horseback. History buffs have an array of colonial-era forts to take in and rum distilleries to take a drink in. The beaches are pristine, except for the occasional sea lion or sea turtle popping out of the waves to say hello.
The food festivals may be off for now, but that doesn’t make the seafood any less delicious or the beach barbecues any less fun. Fabulous resorts such as the Virtuoso-preferred Ritz-Carlton, St. Thomas are open and waiting to greet you with open arms. The U.S.V.I. remains a tropical paradise for family, solo, and romance travel.
