While travel may still seem like a far-off dream for many as the pandemic continues, we're using this time to plan some much-needed future vacations. On the top of our list: the U.S. Virgin Islands: the sandy, multicultural Caribbean destination that U.S. citizens don’t even need a passport to visit.
Currently, travelers to the U.S. Virgin Islands are required to use a screening portal upon entry, in addition to submitting a COVID-19 test result (otherwise a 14-day self-quarantine will be necessary). Whether you're planning to travel safely now or just want to map out plans for later, we've pinpointed four of the best reasons to explore the U.S. Virgin Islands, whenever you feel safe to do so.
