    Has anyone been able to find any decent maps of St. Thomas for driving? The all holy Google maps doesn't find addresses and I'm getting frustrated with that.

    Also, I can't find much about actual bars/clubs on St. Thomas...My bridesmaids are having a true bachelorette party for me here in Nashville, but I want to go out with them the night before and I'm sure the boys will want to do the same, but I'd like to have them elsewhere...Any suggestions? I'm not totally opposed to going to St. Johns, but I know nothing about it...
    I have a fabulous photographer I can share in the United States Virgin Islands in late April/early MayP.M. if interested!http://img.weddingco....pvbh7hxc5u.png

      Crystal, where will you be staying on the island?

      Here is my favorite St. Thomas map: St. Thomas Map - St. Thomas, U.S. Virgin Islands This is the map that is handed out by the car rental companies when you pick up your car. The major roads are color coded on the map. There are "Tommy Starfish" signs colored to match the code. (e.g., green Tommy Starfish route goes from downtown Charlotte Amalie to Magens Bay.)

      I would recommend Red Hook for your Wedding Eve party. There are plenty of places there for partying. For a wild evening, I think Duffy's Love Shack would fit the bill. There's also Caribbean Saloon, Molly Malone's, XO, and some others. Plenty of places within walking distance if you want to separate the men and women. I heartily recommend, however, that, you rent a taxi for the evening. The roads are too narrow, twisty and hilly for folks who've been out drinking to experience on the night before the wedding (or any night), especially since they drive on the other side of the street.

        Thank you!

        I'm not sure where we're staying yet. I have it narrowed down to 3 places; Mafolie, Bolongo Bay, and Secret Harbour. I'm waiting for info from them to decide.

        Apparently that map works well with all the locations I have activities planned at - Coral World, Magen's Bay (wedding) , Mafolie (dinner after wedding), Mahogany Run (boys are going golfing). ::Relieved::

        :-D

          I second the Duffy's Love Shack bar suggestion. Awesome place. Good music, good drinks, fun crowd.

          Iggie's on Bolongo Bay is also pretty awesome. They have karaoke nights and Caribbean nights which are lots of fun.

            Everyone said Duffys Love shack was great... we went last June and stayed at the Marriot and at Secret Harbour... we LOVED Secret Harbour... Condo layout, nice beach with the bar and Blue Moon Cafe Restaurant which had the BEST food ever (and we are food whores)... we saw weddings going on there too, and they were nice!! All of the locals say for night life go to Red Hook, and they also suggested Duffys....

              Thanks! I decided I'll be at Duffy's and FI decided on Caribbean Saloon after seeing their cool website.
