Although it is just one square mile in size, Christiansted is one of just two major settlements on the island of St. Croix.  Lively and bustling to some, but cool and calm to others (it all depends on where you're visiting from), you might say that this town fits somewhere in the middle and is a great destination for all.  In fact, the available activities are diverse enough that most people will find plenty of ways to keep busy.

Sightseeing is a highly recommended activity.  The historic section of town takes up 28 acres of space and features centuries-old Danish style buildings and even a military fort.  Shopping allows visitors to pick up duty free good to bring home, and the restaurants along the shore are a great way to experience local cuisine.  Speaking of the shore, it is hard to keep visitors away from it.  Sailing and fishing charters are always coming and going, and snorkeling and scuba diving trips are popular as well. 

Bike and Scooter Rental

Full of landmarks, restaurants, and other places to visit, bicycles and scooters can be a great way to hop from place to place. Of course, a scenic ride down the historic streets can be an activity all in itself.
