Both Canadian and US sides of Thousand Islands are beautiful. Places to visit on US side are Alex Bay and Clayton. And on Canadian side, Gananoque and Ivy Lea.

The cruise around the islands and drives along the shore to Clayton and over to Wellesley Island will remain a cherished memory.

A boat trip among the islands on the Saint Lawrence is a must. See Bolt Castle if you can. Enjoy. Relax. The Town of Clayton just to the west of Alexander Bay was a very nice surprise.

Great place to enjoy the water the food and Canada which is about 15 minutes away. The people we meet along the way are great and so was our visit to Clayton about 7 miles away.

There are lot of cruises which take you through these islands. There are about more than 1000 islands here. Some of the mansions on the islands are of famous celebrities. The boat ride is great and you can capture many pictures with great scenarios.

Historic with beautiful homes on various islands. View especially nice on bridge on way to and from Canada. Boat rides are available and they are really an excellent way to see the 1000 islands up close.

I think I've only scratched the surface of the area known as the Thousand Islands. There are actually around 1800 islands-many privately owned. You can hop along the St. Lawrence driving from town to town, or tour the islands on a boat. There are historic...More
