A Brief History of St. Thomas
First noticed by Christopher Columbus in 1493, St. Thomas was originally colonized by the Dutch in 1657 and later by the Danish in 1666. Sometime between 1754 and 1755, St.Thomas was acquired by the king of Denmark, where Charlotte Amalie was declared an international free shipping port. The British gained control of the island in 1801 and 1807 until 1815, before being returned to Denmark. Later, in 1917, the United States bought the island.
St. Thomas is known as the number one destination for shopping in the Caribbean and among the top 10 in the world due to its duty-free bargains and no sales tax. This makes items priced well below what is found stateside.
Coral World Ocean Park & Undersea Observatory
View five acres of exotic aquariums and outdoor pools or enjoy a dolphin kayaking experience when you visit Coral World Ocean Park & Undersea Observatory. Go for a swim with the sea lions or experience the dolphin splash and swim. You can even celebrate your birthday with the sea lions. There’s never a dull moment when you visit this park.
Built by Arthur Fairchild in 1933, Drake’s Seat is the perfect place to take in the beautiful scenery. This breathtaking view was only accessible by foot or by horseback when Fairchild built the seat. He decided this was a good place to take a break and rest. You can now get there by car and most tours offer a stop here.
