Things to Do:

Chill on the beach first of all!  Seriously though, we are huge fans of the British Virgin Islands.  It’s home to many iconic beach bars–including the legendary floating Willy T (Yes, you read that right.  We did say “floating”) and the Soggy Dollar, birthplace of the famous drink the painkiller.  If you’ve never heard of these places, they are just a sampling of the many hidden gems in the BVI’s that are bucket list worthy.

It doesn’t get any better than drinking a painkiller in a hammock outside the Soggy Dollar
