The U.S Virgin Islands offer a wide variety of things to do and see. The geography of the islands does not allow a lot of walking. The topography is very hilly and most of the attractions, beaches are not within walking distances from each other. We would not recommend hitch hiking either. I U.S virgin Islands have certainly the highest ration taxi per inhabitant, everybody use them and they can transport anywhere on the islands. If you wish to drive there are many car rental agencies and for the more adventurers renting a scooter can be really fun.
