Not knowing what to expect, we stayed 2 days in Clayton and 2 days in Alexandria Bay. It was the perfect amount of time in both places. Make sure you do the museum in both towns and the Uncle Sam Boat Ride and Boldt Castle.

Abay is a great little village and keeps getting better. All kinds of shops, restaurants, places for kids (beach, playground), and night life. Adults need to visit the Dark Island Distillery.

Took tour of Thousand Islands and St Lawrence River and found it to be worthwhile to understand the history of the area. Was fun to go across to the Canadian side and view the bridges across the islands from the USA to Canada.

Best bet is probably Syracuse. There is a small airport at Watertown but the car rental options, flights to and from, will be better at Syracuse.
