1000 Islands Tips (21)

International Bridge (1000 Islands area)

The bridge opened in 1938, it provides easy passage between the United States and Canada linking I-81 in New York State and Hwy 401 in Ontario, Canada.

There are few places that can be reached by car or foot that offer such a panoramic view of the region.

The 1000 Islands Skydeck is a unique tourist attraction, the only one of it's kind in the 1000 Islands. Running continuously, the elevator takes only 40 seconds to reach the first (glass enclosed) of three observation decks and provide visitors with a spectacular photographic opportunity as they enjoy the panoramic view of the 1000 Islands and St Lawrence River stretched out 130 metres or 400' below.

Take the ferry to Wolfe...

Take the ferry to Wolfe Island!
After a 20 minutes, very nice ferry ride, you can discover beautifull Wolfe island. This little community,whose only link to mainland is by ferry still has a few old traditions. You can go there and walk around and apreaciate the nice, country-style atmosphere, buy your goods at the general store, etc..

A lot of islands that are large enough for houses to be built on are purchased by rich and famous families whose members came to stay here (we've heard) in the summer. (Winter must be too cold!)
