We are so excited to be returning to the USVIs. This time 13of us for a family get together. We will be there over New Years right after Christmas. We have two villas rented in St John. Obviously we can't all travel together in a pack all of the time. I have reached out to a couple of restaurants for the one or two nights we would like to have a dinner reservation for 13. My husband and I have been to St John and St Thomss a couple of times and are in love with the laid back Island culture. My questions involves expectations for this holiday week. Is it still laid back? To what extent do we have to make reservations even if its for 5 people? How crowded can we expect it to be? Is there any kind of event calendar that extends to that week? Any advice on "don't miss" events or activities? I would imagine New Years is laid back but is there anywhere we should try to go?
