If you're looking into St. Croix condo rentals for your next vacation, you should note this is an island full of life and excitement. Don't let the island's relatively small size fool you, as there is plenty here to keep you busy. From deep below the ocean's surface to beer drinking pigs, St. Croix has something for everyone.
The island's largest festival is a Carnival named the "Crucian Christmas Festival" by the locals. It is celebrated in the final days of December and into early January with parades and street performers. Throughout the year there are other significant festivals as well as smaller ones such as Sunset Jazz, where musicians play music on the sands of Fredricksted once a month.
2. Beer Drinking Pigs
The pigs of Montpellier Domino Club need little introduction. Tourists and locals alike rave about these animals who will beat you to the bottom of a cold glass of beer. Of course, the beer the pigs drink is non-alcoholic, but there is a large selection of regular beer for you to try.
3. Historical Sites
As St. Croix has been inhabited for many years, there are of course many historical sites and ruins to take in here. One local favorite is the Whim Plantation. This is a restored sugar mill and plantation from the Danish. You will also find ruins along Mt. Washington and in many other beach side areas. Entry fees are generally low.
