    MONTREAL, Jan. 31 /PRNewswire/ -Few Caribbean destinations match the
 family-friendliness of the US Virgin Islands, America's playground in the
 sunny south.
     Every travel season brings new activities for kids journeying to St.
 Thomas, St. John and St. Croix, and 2008 is no exception. There are enough
 things to do and see for all ages in the USVI this year, from tours of
 historic forts to snorkel lessons along an underwater trail that you could
 come back again and again and not get bored.
     Luxury Retreats,, the world leader in high-end
 villa rentals, has villas across each island and recommends doing a little
 research to match your family with the right destination:
- St. John is great for kids who love nature, with 22 trails tracing its national parkland. This is the place for little explorers, but not for those kids who need malls and amusement parks to keep busy. Our favorite activity on St. John: Snorkeling at Trunk Bay - St. Thomas, on the other hand, is a bustling place with shops and restaurants galore. It's not for families who want to escape the masses, but there will never be a dull moment either. Our favorite activity on St. Thomas: Coral World Ocean Park - St. Croix is a mix of the two, but doesn't quite have the infrastructure of St. Thomas or St. John, so you may need to get creative some days. It's great for passing on incognito history lessons, though. Our favorite activity on St. Croix: Fort Christiansvaern The majority of USVI villas offered by Luxury Retreats are kid-friendly. In addition to the family atmosphere each property provides, the company's complimentary concierge service can arrange any number of additional services to keep your kids happy in the USVI. That includes special, fun dinners prepared by a private chef, snorkel trips and tours of local pirate hangouts. For more information, please visit our website through the following:
