Today the goal remains the same and has grown to include a guide for St. Croix, St. John, Water Island and a special section for cruise ship visitors. has two sister sites; which focuses on relocating to and living in the US Virgin Islands and an online store where you can find books, maps & souvenirs from the USVI.
