Few more St. Thomas questions...

Recommended Posts

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. sad.gif

 

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...

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....

    • It’s been years... and I’m now searching for the same in Montego Bay or Negril. Did anyone ever have any luck finding? 
    • Hello, I'm new to this site. I got engaged already and get married by next year. I have some doubts regarding our dating destination. Hope you will help me. Thank You!
    • Hello everyone,
      Well, this upcoming valentine's day is special for me because I got engaged and planning to spend the day with my fiance. I'm planning to give her an ethical jumpsuit.

      Other than that I have been searching the internet for some nice discounted coupons and searched among my friends and found different sites. Now, we are looking forward to that wonderful day. We searched a lot and found out, Escape The City. Orangeville is a great place for a day trip or weekend gateway from Toronto.
      Theatre Orangeville is offering a weekend package that includes 2 tickets to a Live performance at the theatre, Premium Overnight Accommodations at Best Western Plus Orangeville Inn and Suites and $75 Downtown Wine and Dine Voucher which is valid at select Downtown restaurants, and Free Entry to the scenic Trails & Bridges of Island Lake.

      We are so excited and eagerly waiting for that day.
      If anyone has got any other suggestions for the venue, kindly share your thoughts/ideas.
      Thank You!
       
    • Please tell me, the best wedding venue in Saskatoon, SK.
    • Hey everyone! Like the others here, I'm interested in wedding reception, venue and all related steps & stuff. Starting with my first and the most important note is that we're international couple and we need to think of bilingual wedding. So the first thing we need to think of is whether it will be interpretation or 2 different venue coordinators, sermons and stuff? What is your experience, what could be the best and affordable solution? From googling the issue I've found this Interactio app team ( describing possible solution here  http://blog.interactio.io/case-study-weddings )Basically they offer to hold the venue in the main language, additionally providing simultaneous interpretation online to other quest's mobile phones. Looks like really easy and creative idea. What about the others? How did you solve this kind of obstacle? Any additional advises would be very welcomed here
