The U.S. Virgin Islands is reportedly offering an incentive for travelers to visit in 2017 to celebrate 100 years since America purchased the islands from Denmark.

According to The Huffington Post,

tourists visiting St. Thomas, St. John or St. Delacroix will be given $300 in spending credits for activities like museum visits and kayaking on the famous ‘bio-luminescent bay’ off nearby Puerto Rico.

What’s more, according to Time.com, if you visit sometime during March – the month America officially received ownership of the islands – you’ll receive a “commemorative souvenir.”

The best part?
According to Condé Nast Traveler, flights from the east coast to the U.S. Virgin Islands often swoop as low as $300, meaning “you could essentially find yourself getting reimbursed for your transit.”

Now, there are some restrictions.

You’ll need to spend three consecutive nights at a participating hotel in the area – or multiple, if you plan on visiting all three islands. Additionally, you’ll need to book your trip before October 1, although you may arrive anytime during the calendar year.
