When visitors come to St. John, they are ultimately expecting to take part in activities such as swimming, snorkeling, beaching and hiking. During these periods of prolonged and heavy rains with thunderstorms, however, the conditions for these activities are poor, to say the least.
For today’s rainy day blog, I’ve put together a list of activities to do in the rain. If anyone can think of more to add to the list, please let me know.
Things to do on a rainy day on St. John
