I have posted this message on the tortola forum, but this one seems to get more responses:
My husband and I are frequent St.John travelers but are looking for something new for a trip next year. We have considered many islands but always seem to come back to St.John because we know it and love it....but we're trying to venture out of our comfort zone alittle. Tortola seems to be a beautiful island. We are in our mid-20's but don't need a lot of nightlife. I like alittle shopping- nothing like St.Thomas though, just a few. We are mostly about relaxation and getting away from our busy work week. Does Tortola sound like a good destination for us? Those of you who have been to both st.john and tortola, do you feel we would be happy with tortola if we love st.john? Also, any villa recommendations? We will be taking the inlaws along with us this time so we need a house for 4.
