Life on our island is never dull or uneventful. For a relatively small place, we always have a choice of events, places to go, things to do.

Here’s a sampling for the “winter” months:

Art Thursdays

11.1 – 5.31.2010

Christiansted

Art Thursdays is usually held on the first Thursday each month from November to May. Many of the businesses and art galleries in Christiansted stay open late for the event, which includes a series of gallery walks and informative events. Art Thursdays are aimed at encouraging locals and visitors to discover and enjoy the region’s many artistic establishments and galleries. Several shops also take part in the initiative, which provides visitors with a chance to shop later than usual as well.

Candellight Concert Series at the Whim

11.1 – 4.30.2010

Frederiksted

Locals and visitors crowd the Whim Museum for this popular classical music series. Built in 1794, the candlelit venue at Whim Great House on the Whim Plantation is the perfect setting to listen to the works of the old masters. Identical concerts are performed on consecutive Friday and Saturday nights once a month from November through to April.

Ruins Rambles

11.1 – 5.31.2010

St Croix

Visitors can learn more about the history and culture of St Croix on monthly guided walks through the hidden ruins of old plantations from the 17th and 18th centuries. The popular Ruins Rambles are educational hikes that bring the region alive through the knowledge of local historians. After a walk and guided tour, visitors can enjoy an outdoor picnic of locally produced wines, fruit and cheeses. Taking place each month from November through until May, the walks explore a different route each time.
