Nice Walk

Take a walk over the bridge and see the wonderful view of the St. Lawrence and Alex Bay. The walk is not stressful on the body.

The 1000 Islands Bridge is one of three international crossings over the St. Lawrence River connecting the United States to Canada. The other two are at Ogdensburg (to Johnstown, Ont.) and Massena (Hogansburg to Cornwall, Ont.) The T.I. Bridge is a gateway to Gananoque, the nearest city on the Canadian side of the River. The Brid is actually a series... More

My family and I have crossed the bridge several times this year. We park at the rest area by the toll booths then walk over and back. It's just about 2 miles total there and back. The view is absolutely amazing. You'll love it. You can see everything. Enjoy!!

We have to use this bridge, when staying on Wellesley Island. They are always quick and friendly to deal with.

Thousand Island Bridge Authority has done an awesome job with Heart Island and Boldt Castle!!! Great bridge to bicycle or drive a car across. Great bridge to pilot a boat or ship underneath! Views from the bridge are awesome.

Bridge with a view of the St Lawrence Seaway. But do not look if you are driving. Two way bridge. There is a walk way but we did not do it since we did not have time.

Took a drive over the 1000 Islands Bridge this weekend. It's $2.75 American to cross. You can't stop, but you are going slow enough to get a great view up and down the river on both sides.

Nice bridge that supports the restorations of Boldt Castle with beautiful views both sides. I did not stop on either side as I was with a bus tour.

While on the boat tour we were able to see the bridge and learn some history. It is real neat to see just how big it is. And how each span is made different from each other.

First we drove over the bridge (just to say we did) and saw that there was little walkway on the side...so we came back over to A Bay and parked in the New York Welcome Center parking lot and went over to climb to the top of the bridge. It was a good, subtle workout ... a little scary if... More
