This Labor Day, spend the weekend with a long, relaxing trip to the U.S. Virgin Islands. The destination no longer enforces pandemic restrictions or COVID-19 tests and doesn’t require  passports for U.S. citizens.


The destination has three islands for travelers to explore, but since it’s just a weekend trip, St. Thomas and St. John are the most accessible and the best to explore in a short period of time.


There are plenty of activities for visitors to engage in, it just depends on your interests and which island you visit. If it is your first time visiting and you need help with ideas or an itinerary to experience what the islands have to offer, you can’t go wrong with this sample itinerary:


Day 1

Upon arrival in St. Thomas, head to Mountain Top for stunning views of the island and the famous banana daiquiri. Next, spend the afternoon enjoying the beaches, relaxing in the sand and floating in the water. Magens Bay is a popular beach, but if you are looking to get away from the crowds, head over to Secret Harbor. End the day with a delicious meal at Old Stone Farmhouse for locally inspired cuisine.


Day 2

Take the ferry over to St. John to explore the shops at Cruz Bay. After, get in touch with your wild side and embark on a hike in Virgin Islands National Park before taking a boating excursion through the waters of the park. Travelers interested in water activities can snorkel in the protected waters and come face to face with local fish and marine life. Before heading back to your resort, enjoy local fare through a tasting menu at Lime Inn in Cruz Bay.


Day 3

For your last day, start your morning with a kayaking excursion or soaking up the sun on one of the multiple beaches. Enjoy some sightseeing around Yacht Haven Grande. Catch glimpses of the stunning yachts and window shop at the luxury boutiques. Lastly, enjoy delicious seafood for lunch at Twisted Cork Cafe.
