St. Thomas (US Virgin Islands)

The island of St. Thomas is one of the US Virgin Islands. Lying 65 km. (40 mi.) from Puerto Rico, St. Thomas is 78.2 sq. km. (32 sq. mi.) and its capital city Charlotte Amalie is also the State Capital for the US Virgin Islands. The currency is the US dollar.

As a US territory, St. Thomas and its sister islands - St. Croix and St. John - enjoy a standard of living ranked among the highest in the Caribbean. The United States purchased the US Virgin Islands in 1917 for the price of $25,000,000 when a treaty was concluded with Denmark. The main economic sector in St. Thomas is tourism and this island is renowned for its duty free shopping. Tourism accounts for more than 80% of the US Virgin Island's GDP and employment. The territorial government has also made financial services development a priority.

The population of St. Thomas is 51,181 and the official language is English, although some people speak Creole.
