St. John or Vegas...

Been to St. John for our honeymoon, so now just trying to figure out if i should come back to the USVI/BVI or possibly go to Vegas? Anyone been to both and if so, your thoughts?

The two places could scarcely be more different. One is really, really, really nice. The other is Vegas.

If Vegas is what you're up for, St. John is no substitute for it. For me, although I think Vegas can be fun, if I had a choice between the two I would choose St. John every time.

This is not something anyone else can decide for you. Do you want all night entertainment, partying, drinking...do you have money to lose??? Or do you want to enjoy nature...relax...check out the night sky where you can actually see the stars -- real stars? I don't think any two places on earth could be more different.

dj...another option...have you ever taken a cruise? I'm not partial to cruises, but you do get the entertaiment, casino, dancing, etc. and a new island every day if you cruise the Caribbean. My pick would be Royal Caribbean's Adventure of the Sea Southern Caribbean cruise that leaves from San Juan and stops at 5 or 6 islands -- one of them being St. Thomas. They're are all good stops on this route.

They're pretty different kind of places. Really depends what you're in the mood for. Doesn't seem to me that it would be too hard to decide, but if you can't decide, you could just flip a coin.

I've been living/working on St.John for 6 months of the year and first came here in 1975. I also have been going to Vegas twice a year for the last ten plus years and the first time 30 years ago.

So...........I can't imagine two more different places......I need both places to make me appreciate the extraordinary insanity and pleasures of both.
