The heart of Cruz Bay is the park, directly across the street from the ferry dock. Recently renovated, you’ll find tall trees offering shade, an enormous gazebo that serves as an unofficial taxi office during the week, and, on glorious nights, a music hub that serenades the little St. John city. One of the best new features of the park is Cruz Bay Landing.
Located on the site that used to be JJ’s, Cruz Bay Landing is open all day, every day, and is a vast improvement in design, and dishes. Take the waffle fries, for instance. Golden chunks of potato goodness that rival any burger side you can muster. The photo shows Cruz Bay Landing’s cheesesteak sandwich – divine. The best budget tip is to grab an appetizer during happy hour – half price! Beguile your belly with awesome apps like loaded waffle fries, soft baked pretzel bites, or the Landing shrimp.
