How I could have missed it so long I don't know. Amazing area that all need to see. I just imagine the Voyagers paddling through a hundred + years ago loaded with supplies and beavers pelts. One feels the history in this area.

There are lots more imposing suspension bridges around the world but this bridge claim to fame is it happens to cross St Lawrence River's Thousand Islands. The views from its highest point are spectacular.

I have driven over the Thousand Island Bridge several times and each time I wish I could just walk across and take my time . . . maybe next time.

great view. Stop on the south side and walk across. The view is priceless. Its a little known fact that you can actually park your car and walk across. Same with the section in canada

My son and 16 yo Grandson walked the Bridge between Alex Bay and Wellsely Island. They found it great fun and better than a midway ride,

We missed our exit and took this bridge! Very high up and beautiful scenery! Had to turn around and go back over it! My friend wanted to walk it and take pics! Not me!

The US and Canadian spans were coordinated to a similar design that retains it's early C20th elegance Great views for those who choose to walk to the middle of the Canadian span

One of the most recogonizable land-marks of this region. I love seeing it lit up at night and that the date is displayed in fresh flowers every day as you pass by.

The drive across the bridge is very nice - the views of the Thousand Islands are amazing. A must see when in the North Country
