There are only two real ways to get to St. Thomas. The first, and most obvious, is to fly in. Because it is a territory of the United States, and it is the largest Virgin Island, St. Thomas has a pretty big airport that serves thousands of people a day. It is relatively easy to get a flight from anywhere in the Southern part of the United States to St. Thomas. Atlanta, Miami, and Orlando are three cities that typically have flights going to St. Thomas on a regular basis, but you can also catch a direct flight from your hometown usually, granted that it isn't too far away. Once you get to the airport, you can either rent a car or grab a taxi, depending on where you're staying and for how long you will be gone. If you are staying at a large hotel with many accomodations, you can usually get picked up from the airport as well, although this can sometimes be an extra charge. If you are on a cruise ship, or coming from an other island, you would be arriving in the Port of Charlotte Amalie. This is the capital of the islands, and the entire Virgin Island chain. This is a pretty busy market area with a lot of commercial clutter. The businesses mostly cater to the cruise ships, and when they leave the port later in the day, almost everything closes down.
