Drivers - keep your eyes on the road. Passengers - enjoy the gorgeous view! We took the bridge over to Wellesley Island (US) / found the bridge more interesting than the island. I wouldn't go out of my way to drive the bridge - but it can take you to Canada ----

A drive over the 1000 Islands bridge offers breath taking views. But if you're brave, and aren't afraid of heights, go over the bridge on the walk way. And be sure to bring your camera. The views will not disappoint. I promise.

This is a very large bridge that spans the ST Lawrence river. Cost is a modest $2.75 US and is charged going over only, The views from the top are outstanding and gorgeous. Back in my youth I did walk over the bridge and took many pictures from the very apex of the bridge. The Canadian side also has a... More

We did not have our passports and also didn't have the time so we just took the bridge over to Wellsley Island and toured some of the homes and boat houses. Didn't realize there was a duty free stop but I'm not sure you can access it from the US side. Think you have to go over into Canada, then... More

Very nice bridge with beautiful scenery. I especially liked the duty free shop nearby - things seemed to be priced remarkably low. I picked up a twelve pack of Canadian microbrew beer for $9.
