We did a walking Tour down the 99 steps after visiting Blackbeard’s Castle. From the pier we took a taxi up to the castle, which cost us $5 each. We visited the houses built in the1800’s, the hotel and the amber museum. These steps were built in the mid 1700s, by the Danes, who found streets of steps to be the easiest way to climb up and down the steep hills of Charlotte Amalie. (The 99 steps are actually 103 steps). It was 90 degrees that day and very humid, so we enjoyed the refuge of the cool buildings and the breezes. At the end of the steps is Main Street and if you turn right it takes you directly to the shopping areas.
