We took our kids over the bridge so they could see the view. They loved it! They took lots of pictures and want to do it again.

This is a metal bridge that looks like an older design to me. It felt light a strong bridge - that is a good thing with many trucks using it. While touring the 1,000 Islands area, it was very useful making it easier to see a lot more Islands.

This bridge must be very old and is unique, as it has quite an upward grade and is very majestic! Below you can see many islands in the river, some tiny, some inhabited!

You can take short walk from Canada side or from USA side to the bridge. The view is amazing, you can see the small islands with the bungle on them. you can see the boat that cruising in the area and the people are very friendly and warm.

Like the walking lane. Beautiful bridge and seeing the islands below was a special treat. It was a rainy day but still a great view.

What makes this bridge special is the the walking lane. If you are lucky a 700 foot freighter will pass under during your walk. A truly spectacular view!

We went driving towards Thousand Islands and we crossed the river via Thousand Islands Bridge: the views are dramatic, and especially first time you drive it is awesome! However, we drove it again at it was spectacular too. As it is high, you get a panoramic view of the river and the islands, really beautiful.

Since I'm not find of heights I didn't look well enough but from what I saw it was beautiful - seeing all those small islands on a clear sunny day was great. Bridge lanes were kind of narrow.

This was a bridge consisted of two identical bridges on the Canadian and US side. You can't really see much over the bridge while driving. Really wish they advertised where you may be able to pull over to take pictures of the bridge for it seemed there were several places near the bridge and Alexandria Bay that have models of... More
