If you like shopping for jewelry this is a place to do it but do know your prices and don't be impulsize before entering into negotiations. As far as I am concerned, deals on jewelry and electronics are only good if they are substantially discounted from the mainland and duty free. We didn't find prices to be that good. Some... More

On our last morning, we decided to venture into downtown Charlotte Amalie...A great time for the entire family...there is shopping galore, history and culture and great restaurants. It has a great atmosphere. Well worth your time to explore Main St.

Downtown Charlotte Amalie has great duty free shopping, good restaurants, fun bars, and lots of history. If you're on St. Thomas for a day or a longer vacation, set aside some time to walk along the streets downtown. You'll get a great history lesson, can get some fun drinks and find almost anything you're looking for in the duty free... More

Too many jewelry stores. Waaay too many. About 80% of the stores. If there is a cruise ship in town (most days) you will find it crowded and generally unappealing. If you like jewelry shopping that's another store.

Hard to get around and park, service in most places is slow or bad. Stay in the ocean or a boat. food was good and the place is amazing to visit.

I have always loved Main Street! One is able to find everything from an inexpensive souvenir to a $200,000.00 watch! Ya gotta love it! There are beautiful tablecloths at Mr. Tablecloth, fine jewels at Trident Jewelers, Star Jewelers and Cardow. There are many restaurants just off of Main Street in one of the passage ways. We always eat at Gladys... More

We love shopping on ST. Thomas! It never gets old walking the main street. We always stop in Renaissance Jewelers to visit Adrianne and his staff. Best prices and service hands down! Better than some of the bigger jewelry chains you see in all the ports!!

The Main street is right off the water front. Excellent views the men can enjoy while the ladies do their shopping. Great waterfront restaurants and also it has a flea market area to buy souvenirs and crafts.

The place to shop while in Charlotte Amalie. No tax and discounts on jewelry. I prefer to shop in Little Switzerland. they have 3 shops in the area . Smaller shops tend to be a bit pushy and will have retired Americans standing on the streets offering free gifts just to come into their stores. Once inside the selection is... More

Of course we had to hit the shopping on Main Street, but beware... know what you are going shopping for and get some recommendations on where to go in advance. There are way too many jewelry stores. How do you pick? I did not find the prices any lower that the states - even with duty and tax free prices.... More
