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

Visiting our son at Fort Drum, we decided to take a drive over the Thousand Island Bridge. Even though most of the St Lawrence River was covered in ice and snow, the view was spectacular from the top of the bridge. I would love to cross the bridge on foot in warmer weather.

The first time I travelled across the 1000 Island bridge I was nervous, but was quickly immune due to the unbelievably beautiful views! Every time I now drive across the bridge I become excited to once again see the majesty of the Islands below!

What a sight from the bridge. You can see the majority of the islands from the bridge. Not as nice of a view from the boat ride. But a nice photo opportunity. The bridge isn't as tall as I thought for all those afraid of heights.

Since every corner in this "national park" (Canada side) is private property, this is the only way to have a view over the waterfront. You have to pay a toll (they accept credit cards, US and Canadian dollars).

We walked up the walkway on the bridge through the State Park area. It was beautiful views but the trucks were constant and very close to the walkway. There was a fence between you and the vehicles but it seemed too close for us. I don't think we would walk on the bridge again.
