Choosing a vacation for you and your family seems like a pretty straight forward, easy-peasy kind of thing to do, right? Think again… with the advent of the world-wide-web aka: the internet, aka: the information super-highway, aka: way too much to sort through… it can easily lead to information overload. Of course, I’m probably not telling you anything here so far that you don’t already know.
Of course one method is to use search terms in your online quires like: “Virgin Islands Vacation Ideas”. Or better yet, perhaps use a more specific phrase to a particular place like: “St Thomas Vacation Ideas”.
Now that should of course return some information for you to sort through that is quite a bit more specific than common searches. And of course using words like this may help even better as well: “St Thomas Things to Do” or “Family Things to Do in St Thomas” or even “Nightlife St Thomas Virgin Islands”.
Anyone of these should help. Yet there are other ways to come up with more unique ideas of fun stuff to do when vacationing. One of my favorites is to keep a keen eye out while reading through hotel or villa reviews (on sites like TripAdvisor, Google Reviews, etc. for example) for comments related to activities pervious guests have done.
Another really great tip is to simply contact the proprietor of the guesthouse, villa or vacation rental where you’ll be staying and ask them about fun ideas of things to do in the area. Grated if you tend to book your stay at those huge mega-resorts they staff may not be too amenable to answering those questions, however if you book at the more private villa, the innkeepers are often more than happy to share their knowledge. Especially after you’ve checked in and are an actual guest.
Plus the extra bonus is you will frequently get some inside knowledge about off-the-beaten-path things to do or paces where only the locals know about. Those are the experiences that make for amazing lifelong memories.
So book that vacation / holiday and learn a ton of St Thomas vacation ideas for fun. Stay tuned here for even more details on things to go, places to visit, etc. while on St Thomas.
