From boutiques and fine jewelry to outdoor cafes and restaurants, and the famous downtown shopping mecca, St. Thomas Harbor has plenty for tourists to enjoy. Many cruise passengers visiting St. Thomas for the day will never leave this area for understandable reasons - there is simply so much to do.
