If you have a chance to view Christiansted town from the harbor, don’t miss it!
The lovely row of pastel buildings lining the newly redone boardwalk is simply Gorgeous. The Old World charm carries back through town as small roads and brick alleyways meander up the hillside.
Once a playground for the likes of John Wayne and Maureen O’Hara and recently a holiday stop for Martha Stewart, Seth Green and Vice President Joe Biden.
Christiansted town’s eastern waterfront is graced by a well-preserved collection of historic Danish buildings including Fort Christiansvaern and the Steeple building. All managed now by the US National Park Service, these pieces of history offer wonderful insight to St. Croix’s colonial past to visitors and residents.
Definitely a walking town, you can stroll from the Fort (Free Parking until 4:30 pm) into the main business district. There you will find stunning art work in the numerous galleries, quaint restaurants tucked into 18th century brick courtyards and clothing shops offering everything from simple island styles to haute couture. As you make your way through town, remember it is customary to greet people throughout the island with “Good Morning” or Good Afternoon.” This sign of respect for the Crucian culture is always appreciated by residents and vendors throughout Christiansted as well.
Don’t miss a stroll along the Christiansted boardwalk. Dotted restaurants and SCUBA diving operators in action, there is always plenty to do and see along that walkway. Watch for Seaplanes taking off and landing and check out the tarpon in the shallow harbor waters while you grab a leisurely lunch. Or, enjoy the harbor lights and moonrise as you dine, surrounded by Danish Caribbean history.
