Welcome to Around Frederiksted
The area around Frederiksted has two distinct sides to its topography and character. First, there are the wild mountains and beaches of the rainforest area in the island's northwest pocket. Second, south of the mountains is the broad coastal plain that once hosted the majority of sugar plantations. Today, the area is largely a modern commercial and residential zone where much of St Croix' population lives. But sprinkled along the land bordering Centerline Rd are some remarkable heirlooms from the colonial era. Oh, and rum factories.
