The U.S. Virgin Islands continues to attract groups with its ever-so-cool combination of beauty, relaxation and business in the northern part of the Caribbean Sea.
Meeting planners can craft meetings using spaces that overlook beautiful harbors and vistas or situate attendees in vast botanical gardens. No matter the event, the U.S. Virgin Islands can create a magical experience full of discovery—without the need of a passport for U.S. attendees.
The Serenity of St. Croix
St. Croix brings an authenticity to groups in search of adventure and history. Horseback riding along scenic trails, diverse scuba-diving sites and historic quaint old towns mix in seamlessly with modern meeting facilities. One of the island’s most unique venues is the St. George Village Botanical Garden, a 16.5-acre botanical garden situated on the site of a former 18th-century sugar plantation. Other interesting features on the island include Frederiksted’s Fort Frederik and Christiansted’s many historic buildings such as Fort Christianvaern and Point Udall, the most eastern portion of the United States.
The Beauty of St. John
St. John’s story goes back to 1956 when Laurance Rockefeller bought and donated 10 acres of the island to the National Park Service. That means 9,500 acres of lush, green, hilly land are now easily accessible to visiting groups in search of hiking, well-preserved petroglyphs and tours of plantation ruins. St. John’s Trunk Bay also attracts groups as one of the world’s top-ranked beaches.
The Energy of St. Thomas
Groups looking for an island with vibrant cultural energy needn’t look any further than St. Thomas. Lush mountains, tranquil bays and white-sand beaches surround Charlotte Amalie, the island’s main town that combines old-world charm and modern-day conveniences. Off-site venues abound here for groups looking to meet in unconventional venues such as Fort Christian, Emancipation Garden and St. Peter Great House and Botanical Gardens. Similar to St. John’s Trunk Bay, Magens Bay provides a beach venue that’s gained notoriety as one of the most beautiful beaches in the world.
