It’s Friday, which means many of you are reading this at working as you count the minutes to the weekend. Many of you, like me when I sat at that desk in corporate America, probably daydream about your retirement (when you should be working – oops!) and all the fun travels you’ll embark on once that precious day arrives. Well guess what? We’ve got some great news for all of you today…
Want to know the “coolest” place to retire in the Caribbean? You guessed it! It’s our little slice of heaven here in the Virgin Islands. Here’s what the Carib Journal had to say about it earlier this week:
Retiring can mean going somewhere to do less — to be less active. And there’s nothing wrong with that — especially in the Caribbean, one of the most relaxing places on earth. But some people want a different level of activity for their retirement — they’re seeking a different energy. That’s where these places come in — they’re young, hip and off-the-beaten path — and this kind of positioning offers a totally different experience — a raw, thrilling, sometimes “frontier” type of existence. These are the coolest places to retire in the Caribbean.
And the top spot went to…
St. John, US Virgin Islands
A haven for artists, creative types, beach lovers and sailors, St. John is an eclectic place with beautiful beaches, a massive national park system and a very artsy, funky vibe. It’s also in the US, meaning Americans simply have to buy a plane ticket and find a house. It’s not cheap, but you’re paying to be a part of a very unique community.
Sold! Oh wait, I already live here. 🙂
Everyone needs some St. John in their lives. So if you have a trip booked, congrats! If you happen to be here on island, well you’re one of the lucky ones. And for those of you who don’t have a trip booked yet but can’t wait to visit us, turn the heat up and check out our images and videos pages. It’ll make you feel like you’re here for a fleeting moment.
