Christiansted is the largest town on St. Croix. It is centrally located on the north side of the island adjacent to beautiful Christiansted Harbor. Founded in 1733, it is a former capital of the Danish West Indies and its buildings and walkways are full of local color and history.
United States Founding Father and first Secretary of Treasury, Alexander Hamilton, spent his teen years on St. Croix.
Solid stone buildings in pastel colors with bright red tile roofs line the cobblestone sidewalks, adding a touch of 18th-century European architectural style. Because the town was constructed by African slaves, there are many African influences in Christiansted's design as well, making it one of the few "African-Danish" towns in the world. The town's symmetry, with streets running at right angles to the waterfront, makes it popular for walking tours. The commercial area centers on King and Company streets, adjacent to the Christiansted National Historic Site. The historic site, managed by the US Park Service, includes many 18th century buildings including Fort Christianswaern, the Scale House, and Steeple Building.
The town has several classic small hotels and many bars and restaurants.
The Caravelle Hotel and Casino is centrally located on the waterfront. Several scuba shops operate in the town as the boardwalk and wharf provide easy access to many diving and snorkeling attractions on the north side of the island. Protestant Cay and the Hotel on The Cay with a beautiful white sand beach, water sports center and beach bar/restaurant are a short 100 yard mini-ferry away.
A trip to St. Croix is not complete without several visits to historic Christiansted.
