“Exciting Part of America!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 7, 2014

We seen Point Udall our first day of being in St. Croix. It's awesome to see this brand new piece of American history! Not only that, but there are such great views from the site as well. We also went back later on during our trip to watch the sunrise at Point Udall. It was beautiful, and something you just must do to appreciate the world! We also drove up to the point a 3rd time to hike to Jack and Issac's Bay, which was so worth it! A beautiful hike, all in all. Good advice would be to wear proper hiking shoes. We wore our regular tennis shoes and it went great! Once you reach the bay, it's simply amazing. So nice and secluded! Plus, more great views. You must see Point Udall on your St. Croix trip!

“Beautiful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 5, 2014

The most eastern point of the United States. Scenic drive along the sea to this memorial. Great photo opps and the view is endless. No beaches or restaurants but worth seeing.

“Point Udall Monument”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 5, 2014

Point Udall is a spectacular overlook and the easternmost point in the United States, so it's worth a look. There is a monument constructed at the tip that is appropriate for such a location. However, the monument is clearly an astronomical observatory a la Stone Henge. Posts with holes that sight at other carefully laid out posts, etc. Clearly a nice touch. However, there is no explanation, or even a mention of what these alignments are. Even the lengthy brass plaque. only mentions that it functions as a sundial as it casts a shadow on another stone at noon. Again, nice, but just the surface of what was so obviously constructed there. No one seems to know or care. It made me wonder, was it aligned wrong so the government ignore it, or are these wonderful alignments, which could be quite an event at Solstaces, just lost?

“Beautiful View”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 4, 2014

As most everyone else has said, this is the eastern most point in the US. I would definitely make it a point to go there. The moon rise and/or Sunrise is amazing. Just be careful to go when there are other people around or during the day. Some of the locals warn of some shady people who frequent there after dark. It's safer in numbers.

“You cannot miss the Easternmost part of the US”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 3, 2014

This is a beautiful, scenic spot that you must not miss.
Park and take a walk to Isaac Bay. Leave your door's open with no valuables. I've seen lot's of broken glass but....The walk down is an easy 15 min. Don't let anyone tell you it's strenuous. Only if your in a walker
