one of the prettiest towns in the Caribbean, is built around a harbor not quite deep enough for modern day cruise ships, so the town maintains its quaint, special flavor. Both the Steeple Building and Fort Christianvaern are both open to the public and administered by the National Park Service. Other museums in town are the Apothecary Museum and the Archeology Museum. Be sure to visit the handcrafted jewelry shops and the excellent art galleries.
Estate Whim Plantation Museum is lo-cated off Queen Mary Highway (also called
Centerline Road, aka route 70) near Frederiksted and has historical displays about the sugan era of the island's history. Also of note is the refurbished windmill and the superb Greathouse filled with the islands prized mahogany antique furniture. You might be lucky enough to catch a Candlelight concert held in the Greathouse
monthly in season. Also worth a visit, just off the Mahogany Road is another Greathouse, the Carl and Marie LaWaetz Family Museum at lovely Estate La Grange
Frederiksted on the West end of the island is know for it's stately quietness. Fort Frederik is also a National Historic Site and plays an important role in the island’s history for it was here the emancipation of the slaves was announced. Here you will also find a statue commemorating that great local hero, Buddhoe, blowing the conch shell.
Besides the towns, there are many great areas to explore for the scenic vistas, great beaches, and the remains of the bygone Caribbean culture, more obvious on St. Croix than the other American islands, all making St. Croix the imcomparable vacation experience that it is.
