Seeing the islands was so much fun. According to Ethan from Uncle Sam Boat Rides, there are 1864 islands and we were able to see some on our tour. The information he provided was very interesting.

Several years back, we were riding with two other couples and found ourselves in Alexandria Bay. It was early afternoon on a weekday in mid-September. All the schools were back in... More

Some islands are small rock projections in St Lawrence River and others are bigger, inhabited with some pretty nice houses. Boat is the only mode of transportation.

A visit to Thousand Islands on my way back from Montreal to Toronto was worth it. It is a place which can be visited either from Canada Side or from USA Side like Niagera Falls. It is a group of islands big to small, the smallest being just enough to hold a house. Castles are built on some of the... More
