A beautiful bridge with a beautiful view. Got some fantastic pictures of and from the bridge. The Thousand Islands are incredible and a drive across the bridge is great.

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.

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,
