St. Thomas Advice Needed!


Last year I threw it out that we needed Las Vegas and Disney World advice and y'all came through with flying colors. This time I need St. Thomas advice from someone who has been there before. Here's the basics:
  • Our flight will land on a Monday around 3:45 Atlantic time.
  • We are staying at Marriot's Frenchman's Reef and Morningstar Resort in Charlotte Amalie.
  • We have a company reception that Monday night.
  • Tuesday is a free day.
  • Wednesday is a company brunch, and Wednesday afternoon is wide open.
  • Thursday is wide open.
  • We fly home on Friday around lunch.
Here's what I have so far:
  • We will probably not rent a car because they drive on the left side of the road and dying on my vacation because we drove on the wrong side of the road doesn't sound like my idea of tropical fun.
  • Taxi's are very expensive.
  • The hotel restaurants are very expensive.
  • We are taking an all-day snorkel excursion to St. John.
That's it. We need help with everything else. Do we venture into town? Stay at the resort? Walk the 99 steps? Go to Paradise Point? Jeremy doesn't want this to be a go, go, go vacation, and I don't want this to be a "I went to St. Thomas and did nothing" vacation. We just need a happy medium so that we both have a great time and come back home a little tanner and a lot more refreshed.

So if you've ever been to St. Thomas, whether on a cruise or stayed on the island, any advice is greatly appreciated!!

We went to STT in Dec. and you are right, it was difficult to get around by car, not just because of driving on the left. Too many twists and turns, hard to follow. Try going to tripadvisor.com, type St. Thomas in the search bar, then click on forums. You can ask your question there and people who live there can give you the best advice. (I think you have to join the site, but it's free!) Good luck!
