Burt Wolf: Travels & Traditions

U.S. Virgin Islands

Series Website »
Episode Guide »
Columbus visited these islands during his second voyage and thought they were so beautiful that he named them after the 11,000 virgins of Saint Ursula. Burt tours the three major islands of St. Thomas, St. John, and St. Croix, explains why they are the freest free ports in the Caribbean, what to buy, what to eat, why Bluebeard's beard was blue, what are the advantages of a yacht charter vacation, what it's like to take a guided tour of a coral reef in a diver's helmet, and how to have a virtual wedding on the internet.
