    A little piece of Sweden in Wolfe Island

    Wasa bread

    Favorite thing: I found Wasa bread in a small shop in Wolfe Island...definitely did not expect seeing it there. I didn't even think that bread was available outside of Scandinavia (maybe at an Ikea shop), to be honest, but it made me smile.

    1000 Islands Cruises

    by Highbrae Written Nov 10, 2007

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: - The first thing to remember is there are over 1800 islands.
    - The next thing to remember is that almost anytime of year is the right time to visit the islands.
    - The cruise lines that sail the islands offer a full range of cruises from sightseeing to dinner cruises. They sail from Kingston, Gananoque, Brockville, Rockport and others.

    Fondest memory: Boldt Castle, a rineland Castle built by the then owner of the Waldorf Astoria in NYC and rumour has it the site of the invention of 1000 islands dressing.

    Favorite thing: Take a cruise around the 1000 Islands. There are many different boat charter companies in Kingston and the surrounding towns and they are the main attraction of the area.

    Fondest memory: Kingston is in a beautiful part of Ontario and part of the geological area called the Canadian Shield. I love driving out that way and just wandering around seeing the scenery. It's especially lovely in the fall/autumn when the leaves are changing colour.

    shortest bridge between US & Canada (1000 Islands)

    Fondest memory: Two small islets are connecting by a bridge and renown as the shortest international bridge because these islets belong to US and Canada respectively.

    Favorite thing: Board one of these boats and see the Thousand Islands. On the day we visited it the boat was not crowded. A lot of seats were empty and lot of rooms to move around.
