The map will be distributed free at the Red Hook and Cruz Bay ferry docks, and other places on the island, beginning in January. The map divides the island into five areas and directs people to various sites and activities.
"Each territory has its own unique adventure with clues to find, questions to answer and activities to complete," explains the map's Web site. "These tours involve not just site seeing but interaction with the island's hot spots, restaurants and shops, historic sites, beaches and hide-aways."
Visitors will be invited to go online to the map's Web site (http://islandtreasuremaps.com/), upload their answers and comments, and have the opportunity to win the "Motherload", a free trip to St. John.
The map is being developed by Jennifer Knowles-Donnelly, co-owner of the Jolly Dog stores, and a partner. She describes the map as a way for merchants to get people to come into their stores and get the answers to the map's questions. Think of it as a scavenger hunt.
