Last Minute Trip in September

If you had the chance to take a last minute trip in at the end of September or the First of October would you go? We have been before but never this time of the year. Would you go and if so what will be the drawbacks? We love quite and don't mind cooking in some.

Thanks for your help!

Absolutely I would go! In fact, I was trying to work a short visit in about that time since our November trip is a ways off. You will probably find some restaurants closed, however I would think the beaches would be quiet. Any time is a great time to visit St John.

Both weeks are the same. Pick whatever flight is less.

I would go too, but recommend you buy travel insurance since it's still hurricane season. Some restaurants will be closed but still plenty of places to eat. Check www.stjohnspice.com for restaurant closings/hours.

I would go (unless there was a hurricane brewing)...so travel insurance sounds like a good idea. St John is the PERFECT place for peace and quiet. Your joy of cooking will come in handy since some restaurants will be closed. However, I think you'll find some great choices for dining... bluewater provided a great link to check closings/hours.

Safe Travels!

My husband and I are going around the 27th of sept. In 2010 we went a week prior. It was just as beautiful and enjoyable as other times but less crowded. The beaches were empty and many of places closed but still enjoyable. We purchased travel insurance both times. Hoping to be just as lucky this year in not having to use it.
