Just a shopping street. Sorry that I did not buy anything so did not know whether is it a good deal in here. But sometimes you can get free wifi just around the corner. Or visit a synagogue just 2 blocks north from the main street.

Right in the center of town there is every type of store imaginable here, from trinket shops to jewelry stores. Many streets to walk up and down. This is a nice way to window shop and people watch. There are places to purchase food also. Duty Free does not mean that the savings is being passed onto the customer. Aside... More

This is not a jewelry watch and gift shop to visit . They do not respect there customers and never stand behind the product they sell. Purchased an onyx bracelet for a valentine day gift . The bracket pin came out and took in back to the store . Was told that they are not responsible and they don't replace... More

Lots of streets to walk - you must go up and down each one! Many shops with unique goods and services to offer to the public. The Tent Flea market is a fun place to shop where you can haggle prices and get a good deal on almost anything.

We didn't book a tour for our one day port stop here, thinking we'd walk and wander. We noticed people on nearly every corner with what looked like maps and clipboards, but we walked by them thinking we'd find an info booth or tourist agency. We didn't. Only hawkers. So, we did approach one of these people. He led us... More

Along Main Street, the restored buildings are GREAT, BEAUTIFUL stone structures. The shops sell mostly duplicate items, T shirts and tourist ___ to those silly enough to buy that stuff with imprinted ST. THOMAS, USVI. Lived there, done that, have the T shirt! The USVI has two great things to experience - Carnival in February and Hurricanes in (UN predictable!).

If you like island shopping, this is your spot. They have all of the usual duty free shops for jewelry, booze and of course tee shirts. Take your time, browse and enjoy!

I adore Charlie and his entire family. I have purchased beautiful pieces every year. Visiting with the family is always the highlight of my trip. This is a place that truly delivers on their promise. You just can't go wrong here. Enjoy every moment in good health.
