In 2011 my wife and I took a trip to St. Croix during October. This is off season and we got a fantastic deal on both flights and hotel lodging. Honestly this is how we normally travel since it saves us a lot of money. We stayed at Chenay Bay on the north west end of the island at the Chenay Bay Beach Resort which was a great location. Throughout the week we spent a lot of time both going snorkeling and driving around the island to see different towns. Since it was off-season the island was almost dead from a tourist perspective, but the restaurants were open, and everything was available.
While walking around the the Christiansted Shopping area we came across this neat little storefront walkway. There were vines hanging all over the front of the buildings and around the arches that it gave the area a very tropical and ancient feel. At the same time the shops were filled with bright artwork and items that gave it a light and fun feeling. It was a great juxtaposition for the area and made it fun to walk around.
