Every time I take visitors to Gananoque, ON, I always take them to the 1000 Islands Tower. It’s just a few minutes from US/Canada border. This is the best place to view entire region. It gives visitors a great picture of the St. Lawrence river,...More

After cruising the spectacular 1000 Islands by boat a must see is going up the tower by elevator to capture a view of the islands from high above. The first nations called this "the garden of the great spirit". It is a paradise found!

The tower was okay. It did have some good views and the guy at the top of the tower was very friendly and knowledgeable. It’s something I’m glad I did but wouldn’t HAVE to do it again.

The prior day we did Uncle Sam's boat tour of the Islands. For a different perspective of the islands, going up to the tower is worth it. It was about a 20 minutes drive from our hotel in Alexandria Bay. If you're going to the...More
