5 Things to do in St. Thomas

It'w Wanderlust Wednesday and today we're talking about St. Thomas. We've been to St. Thomas several times over the last few years. There is definitely plenty to keep you busy.

1. Head to the beach. With over 40 beaches it will be easy to find at least one to fit your needs. Consider visiting Magan's Bay for a beach with clear and gentle water. 

2. Go snorkeling. Nothing better than seeing these guys swimming around you on a Wednesday morning. 

3. Take the Skyride up the hill to Paradise Point.
Get some great views from above. And even from below.

4. Visit a US National Park. The Virgin Islands National Park is part of the United States National Park system. Take the ferry over to St. John to the visitor center and get your National Park Passport stamp.

5. Eat, drink, and be merry. Remember those conch shells you put up to your ear so you could hear the ocean? Well, folks actually eat the meat out of them. Fritters and stews, salads and sandwiches.  And authentic BBQ in St. Thomas? Oh, yeah.
And don't forget about the rum drinks. Can you guess the number of rums in this one?

Lily the bartender at the Smoking Rooster will show you. Go ahead and count.
