You could do an island tour ..great views from the top of the hill but mostly a shopping port

It might help if we knew what your interests are. Beach bumming? Walking? Shopping? Touring? History? St. Thomas offers just about everything.

We like beach bumming and wandering around the with the locals. Not much for shopping. Bluebeard's castle might be interesting, but not a must-see for us. We will probably hire a driver on Dominica.

loislane,
There is plenty to do in St Thomas. Most people go to St John for a beach day at the beautiful Trunk Bay. This website may help you decide on things to do.

Well, there are several good beaches on St. Thomas but you'll need transportation. Bumming around with the locals there is doable but I'd stay in the market street areas. Blackbeard's is a nice place but if you don't take a bus you'll have to walk up a zillion stairs to get there. The flea market at the bottom of those stairs is a good place to talk to locals and buy some neat stuff at cheap prices. Wandering on most other islands trying to connect with the locals is ill-advised. Stay on the beaten path.
