Destination: The U.S. Virgin Islands

Caribbean Islands offer tropical breezes, the sounds of steel drums, and outstanding opportunities for pristine beach exploring. Year-round warm temperatures are ideal, and these three islands have countless activities to experience for snorkelers and divers, foodies, golfers, snorkelers and hikers. There are plenty of spots for shoppers and beach bums to practice their best vacation, too.  The U.S. Virgin Islands are a short hop away and no currency exchange or passports are needed for U.S. citizens.
