Drake's Seat

VInow
View from Drake's Seat

St. Thomas is mountainous and offers beautiful views. The most popular lookouts are Drakes Seat and Skyline Drive Overlook. Drake’s Seat was built in 1933 by Arthur Fairchild. In those days navigating the hills of St. Thomas involved traveling by horse or foot. He thought the spot where he put Drake’s Seat was a nice place for a rest. You too can take a break and enjoy the fabulous view from the famous seat!

Gorgeous!

This spot was absolutely perfect for stopping and looking around. We got some fantastic pictures from this place. It is so beautiful here. You can see so far and see so much. Definitely worth stopping at for sure.
