Divi Carina Bay Casino (St. Croix)#14 in Best Things To Do in U.S. Virgin Islands
Price & Hours
If you've got that gambling itch, book a hotel on (or take a day trip to) St. Croix. The U.S. Virgin Islands' only full-service casino is located in the town of Christiansted on the grounds of the Divi Carina Bay Beach Resort. The casino is small by big-city standards but according to TripAdvisor users, it will appease any visitors who love trying Lady Luck. In addition to video poker machines, Divi Carina Bay has more than 300 slots as well as live-action table games like blackjack, craps and Caribbean stud poker. One TripAdvisor user described the casino as "clean, modern, safe. All the usual games and gimmicks on a very small scale — snack bar (very basic), players club, bells, whistles and no natural light."
Part of the Divi Carina Beach Resort, the casino is open Sunday through Thursday from 10 a.m to 4 a.m. The casino stays open until midnight on Fridays and all night on Saturdays. You can peruse the casino for free, but playing any games will cost you. Visit the casino's website for more information.

#1 Virgin Islands National Park (St. John)
You don't have to make a special effort to visit the Virgin Islands National Park; if you're on St. John, you're probably standing right on the edge of it. Two-thirds of the island is parkland, and most of Love City's top attractions — Annaberg Plantation, Caneel Bay and Trunk Bay — are within its confines. There are numerous ways to enjoy this tropical paradise. Adventurous travelers should hike at least one of the 22 trails, while families will enjoy camping overnight on the beach.
There is no fee to enter the park, but you'll have to fork over $4 per adult to enjoy Trunk Bay beach. One TripAdvisor user raves that a visit to Trunk Bay is well worth the price: "Trunk Bay is absolutely gorgeous and has all the amenities — sheltered picnic tables, restrooms and a good snack stand. If you want to sit, read and/or watch the world go by this is the very best beach!"
