In a dream world, every kitchen has an unlimited ice cream machine, your wardrobe updates itself instantly for every season and you get paid to take a vacation. While we can鈥檛 guarantee those first two perks any time soon, we may have a life hack for the last part. Get ready: The US Virgin Islands are giving every visitor who steps ashore next year $300 to spend on their vacation. Yeah, you read that right.

The program is a part of the islands鈥 centennial. To celebrate 100 years of being a US territory, visitors can get 300 bucks to spend exploring the island. But the bonus isn鈥檛 just a take-the-cash-and-run situation. It鈥檚 meant to help visitors get a sense of the islands鈥 culture, so it鈥檚 only redeemable on things like eco-tours, museum admissions, food tours or outdoorsy exploration (kayaking, hiking, climbing, etc.).

To get your $300, book a three-night stay in either St. Croix, St. John or St. Thomas through the islands鈥 department of tourism here. Then they鈥檒l send you vouchers you can use like cash at participating locations. Plus, if you happen to travel during the month of March 鈥 the actual centennial month 鈥 you鈥檒l receive a free commemorative surprise gift. Score!

Now if you need us in 2017, we think you鈥檒l know where to find us鈥
