Dronningens Gade, also known as Main Street, is the primary shopping thoroughfare in the capital city of Charlotte Amalie. Although primarily swamped by gaudily-clad cruise ship passengers seeking the tacky wares spilling onto the sidewalks, it has its share of upmarket amenities as well, including quite a few notable jewlry and watch stores. In fact, Charlotte Amalie seems to be the place to buy a watch, given the low prices and duty free laws. The street has a rather vivacious atmopshere, with salesmen all trying to make the pitch for their stores or entice you down a palm-shaded alley to a restaurant cooking Caribbean soul food.
