As you fly into the Cyril E. King Airport (STT), look out your window for an unforgettable vista of white sandy beaches and crystal-clear blue seawater. For an even more breathtaking view, be sure to try the St. Thomas sky ride, which takes you to a height of more than 700 feet above the city. You can also climb the 99 steps of Charlotte Amalie to view the vast expanse of the Caribbean spread out before you.
