Things to do on St. John

 

It is true that St. John has a wonderful laid back atmosphere but there is a common misconception that there is not much else to do once you have explored the reefs, soaked up the sun and enjoyed the local tropical drinks. There is so much more, St. John is the perfect place to treat your mind, body and soul.

 

There is an active art scene, a community theater, ongoing archeological digs, terrific and diversified music, a well stocked library and several small, unique museums. And check out the lectures offered by the National Park or by Omega.
