With Easter on its way, we think it’s a great analogy – St. Croix is hippety hoppin’ – from an energetic Crucian Christmas Festival to a February full of activities, like Jump Up, AgFest, and Mardi Croix. Now the big St. Patrick’s Day Parade is just days away! And in a few weeks, beaches all around the island will begin to fill for Easter camping, a decades-old tradition.
The island also kicked off the new year with a presidential visit. St. Croix is a favorite vacation spot for Joe and Jill Biden, though this was the first time they have visited while serving as President and First Lady. Despite anyone’s political views, this was huge for St. Croix. Their visit brought worldwide attention to the island and it was neat to have Air Force One sitting on the tarmac at the Henry E. Rohlsen Airport (photo credit: Amanda Zak).
St. Croix has seen increased cruise ship traffic this year. We’ll see more than 60 ships throughout the season, which brings more attention to our island and attracts more tourists in the long-term. As for air travel, SCUBA also does a great job at providing a summary of St. Croix airline service. And if you’d like to see some spectacular footage of the humpback whale migration around St. Croix, scroll through SCUBA’s recent Facebook posts.
Our weather has been absolutely perfect – evenings of 72-degrees and highs of 82-degrees. And for the past week it has been so clear that we can practically see real estate signs in the yards of homes on St. Thomas!
