Ascend 99 Steps, the landmark step street of charming Charlotte Amalie. The street, which actually contains 103 steps, is just one of dozens that rise up the hill from the harbor area. Dating back to the 18th century, the steps were built with bricks used as ballast on the Danish merchant ships that visited the harbor. Enjoy the picturesque climb surrounded by flowering gardens; at the top, reap your rewards with a scenic view of the sea and harbor below.
