The island's main town and the territory's capital, Charlotte Amalie was founded in 1666. Originally called Taphaus, or Tap House, it is now named after a Danish queen. The narrow streets often bustle with shoppers seeking duty-free bargains, visitors viewing the historic sites, and government workers and professionals heading for their offices. Walking is the only easy way to navigate through the car and foot congestion. Parking is a nightmare, but you can usually find a space at the large public lot adjacent to Fort Christian. Take a taxi from the Havensight cruise ship pier. Most merchants accept credit cards.
