Virgin Islands on "Top Choices" list for 2017

Published on January 14, 2017 by calabashcottages

The Virgin Islands has done it again, ranking number two on Islands Magazine's "Best Places to Travel in 2017" list. Here's what they said:

New year, new places to travel. These nine islands made this year’s hot list of the best places to travel in 2017 thanks to a host of new resorts and reasons to visit. So pack your bags and start planning your next getaway.

U.S. citizens don’t need a passport to explore this trio of Caribbean islands (St. Thomas, St. John and St. Croix). While the 133-square-mile chain has history in spades — Christopher Columbus touched down in 1493 — 2017 marks a banner year as the USVI celebrates its Centennial, with special events (festivals, parades and presumably lots of rum cake) continuing throughout the year. Also historic, Caneel Bay, the 60-year-old, 170-acre escape in St. John’s Virgin Islands National Park founded by environmentalist and preservationist Laurance Rockefeller, just celebrated its diamond anniversary. The property is bringing back the original beauty of its pared-down, 1950s-inspired Scandinavian style.

I first drifted to St John in 1982 with no plan whatsoever, not knowing a soul and knew right away I was home. I married my husband there in 1990. Paul is a retired builder and was responsible for the construction of all of Calabash Cottages homes. All these years later I still love my island and the great community we have here,
