Take a Tropical Trip!
Unless you have a second home in southern Florida, Texas or California, the likelihood that you've thought about getting away during the cold weather months is pretty high. While this time of year is great for scheduling vacations, this year is a bit different due to the pandemic. While we can't be there in person, we're going to take a virtual trip to the tropics! Below you'll find camera feeds of fantastic beaches and information about each. Hopefully we can find our inner calm watching these streams and plan future trips there!
Panoramic of St. John, USVI
The smallest of the USVI, St. John's is a Caribbean paradise! With much of the island protected as a National Park, you get both the glitz of modern tourism, with the untouched beauty of nature to explore nearby. Click on the video above to be transported there and see the beauty St. John's has to offer.
St. Jean Bay, St. Barths
Referred to as "Heaven on Earth", St. Barth's is a lovely Caribbean destination. With the customary white sand beaches amongst various coves and lavish villa rentals, St. Barth's is another tropical destination. The video link above will give you a live view of the St. Jean's Bay, the most visited beach in St. Barth's.
Click the button just above this to be transported to the Seven Stars Resort in Turks and Caicos! Rumored to be the initial landing spot of Christopher Columbus (rather than the Bahamas), Turks and Caicos has a deep history that's waiting to be explored! When it comes time to travel again, keep the islands in mind, as their typical temperature is 80 degrees and stays pretty clear of rainfall.
By clicking the button above, you'll take a trip to the Eastern Caribbean and visit Anguilla. With an embargo on cruise ships, casinos and high rise hotels, Anguilla seems more authentic and less like a tourist trap. The island has many options for tourists, as there are many places to eat and almost as many sightseeing and excursion opportunities. Cycle through the three cameras to visit various points of interest on the island!
