Waterfront Highway is just that - the road that runs along the waterfront past the town (city?) of Charlotte Amalie in St Thomas. For some (visitors, mostly), it may seem unique - even fun - driving on the left on a four lane highway, past shops and storefronts built hundreds of years ago, with the harbour sparkling on the other...

I see people commenting about the traffic. Not sure what they were expecting. This is the main road and when cruise ships are in port, it's busy. Even though there is traffics, it is more like rush hour in a midsize town. Nothing like New York, Boston, or Atlanta. Very good shopping. Green House is a good place to eat.... More

Upon leaving the airport we followed the Waterfront Highway. We did not know where we were going but followed the follow of traffic. if you are not familiar with driving on the left side of the road following the flow of traffic becomes your number 1 job as driver. I told my wife driving in St Thomas is easy. You... More

Driving on the left... just not right... we rented a car and had to turn it in or die..... And, please be aware of the $500 stripped from your card for any rental.

You travel from big cities and are used to traffic jams ? - you got it here!! I lived in St T for 4 years, have many friends still there, and wonder WHY folks put up with the traffic jams along Veterans Hwy when the Cruise Ships dock? Using US money, this (only) tourism burden could have been solved a... More

Waterfront Hwy, also known as Veteran’s Hwy, is a busy four lane highway running along the harbor and stretches from Havensight Mall, near the cruise ship dock on the extreme east of Charlotte Amalie, to Frenchtown on the extreme west. While Charlotte Amalie’s harbor is very beautiful and full of activity with boats of all types and seaplanes, I found... More

This is the main road from our timeshare to town. It is very scenic. You get to drive by the cruise ships, the shops, the flea market and the water. Remember to drive on the left!!!!

breathtaking view , can lead you from 1 area of the island to another while getting an ocean breeze. of course you do have your beggars,homeless etc.... but overall they leave you alone & it doesn't detract from the view

Off course the shopping here is top quality with top price as compared to Main and Back Streets and the atmosphere is quite uplifting with the Waterfront ever present.
