St. John, St. Croix and St. Thomas which is known as U.S. virgin islands is a great destination since they belong to the United States. You don’t have to worry about passports, and the U.S. dollar is accepted there. These are three very distinct islands, all with different history. Recently, CBS news had a story of a St johns national park and now I know why it’s so expensive to stay there. St Johns is the most expensive of the three islands since there is limited real estate because 2/3rds of it is a national park. The Rockefeller family saw the development that was happening in St.Thomas and did not want St. John’s landscape to change. Laurence Rockefeller (son of John D. Rockefeller) donated 5000 acres of land where he had a resort called Caneel Bay in 1952. Caneel Bay is still a luxurious resort but you are stilled surrounded by park land. Since I was in St.Thomas , I took the ferry to St. John’s where we went to Trunk Bay beach . I vividly remember going through a park to get one of the most gorgeous beaches . Thanks to the Rockefeller’s , St. Johns stays green.
