What is the 1000 Islands?

It’s hard to say. It’s a place that not enough people know about but also a destination that attracts visitors from around the world. It’s where families and friends gather along the water to dine, swim and cast a fishing line. It’s where first-time visitors look in awe as their tour boat guides them past seemingly countless islands with mansions, lighthouses and fairytale castles. Even after a cruise, some find it hard to believe that a place with so many islands—1,864 to be exact—exists in North America.

It’s sunsets reflected by the St. Lawrence River and Lake Ontario. It’s a place that once belonged to the Gilded Age rich that’s now enjoyed by everyone.

For some, the 1000 Islands is zip-lining, kayaking and boating. For others, it’s enjoying a cool beverage – made just down the road – while sitting in a dock chair, watching mammoth steel ships lumber by.

It’s hard to sum up because there’s few places like it in the world and the 1000 Islands can be enjoyed in so many different ways. You’re invited to visit and discover what the 1000 Islands is to you.

For some, it’s the familiarity of greeting their favorite B&B host-turned-friend. For others, it’s the first time at a camp site they’ll book for summers to come.

1000 Islands International Visitors Guide

Cruises SCENIC BOAT CRUISES

T

he most popular way to see the islands is aboard a boat cruise! Tours depart throughout the day to cruise visitors past fairytale castles, stately mansions and historic lighthouses. Tour boats zig-zag among the islands while guides entertain with true stories of pirates and bootleggers and point out homes owned by titans of industry and secret societies. Cruises range from 1 to 5 hours; some include stops at Boldt Castle, Singer Castle and Rock Island Lighthouse. You can pair your sightseeing cruise with a luncheon or dining excursion or enjoy a twilight tour that includes tastings by local wine and beer producers. Be sure to check for themed-party cruises, fireworks outings and other special tours throughout the season. Fall is a popular time to cruise because visitors are treated to a “mirrored-effect” of colorful fall foliage from the islands reflecting off the water. Cruising season fluctuates depending on weather but most tour companies start in late April and wrap-up in November. ¡

Castles BOLDT CASTLE

N

ew York City hotelier George Boldt (Waldorf-Astoria) built this six-story, 120-room mansion as a gift to his beloved wife Louise at the turn of the century. Her untimely death left the dream unfulfilled and the castle lay abandoned for nearly a century. The stunning restoration of the castle and other island structures has topped more than $45 million and leaves visitors—many who come back annually to see the progress—in awe. Visitors can also tour the Boldt Yacht House, home to a collection of antique boats including several owned by the Boldt family. A shuttle boat ferries passengers between Boldt Castle and the Yacht House every 30 minutes. Visitors can tour the castle and other island structures at their leisure; tours are self-guided and aides are located throughout. The castle is accessible by tour boat and private watercraft and is handicap accessible. Visitors arriving from Canada must provide bordercrossing documents. ¡

What makes an island...an island? We actually have 1,864 islands in the “Thousand Islands.” o become part of that count, an island must meet two criteria: it must be above water 365 days a year and it must support a living tree. The smallest is Tom Thumb Island, located just upriver—or west—of the Canadian span of the Thousand Islands Bridge. With just one tree and only a few square feet staying above water all year, Tom Thumb barely makes the cut. No island is divided by the international border, meaning each is either wholly within the United States or Canada. That causes the international border to zigzag across the water instead of forming a straight line between the two counties.

In some places along the St. Lawrence River, islands that are very close are in different counties. Each island has its own individuality with features such as stately granite cliffs, soft sand bays, tall dark pines and vibrant maple trees. It’s a sightseer’s paradise. Most islands are privately owned; accommodations range from modern mansions harkening back to the region’s time as a playground for the wealthy to modest fishing and hunting camps. So if someone asks, remember two things: above water all year and at least one tree. Anything less is just a shoal. ¡

City of the 1000 Islands

T

he River is calling, and you absolutely must experience Brockville! View the 1000 Islands up close on a high-speed adventure boat or enjoy a cruise aboard a tour boat with the 1000 Islands and Seaway Cruise Company. It’s a relaxing, comfortable and intimate cruising experience on the St. Lawrence. Departures are from downtown Blockhouse Island. Blockhouse isn’t an island anymore, but we still call it one! During the construction of Canada’s first railway tunnel in 1860, a place was needed for the excavated rubble and presto, the island was transformed into a peninsula! The island is so popular with locals that you will find them out ‘doing the Blockhouse loop’ day and night, and you can too! It’s a great spot to watch the sun go down, view freighters, fish, or get a close-up look at Brockville’s resident Tall Ships, The Fair Jeanne and The BlackJack. Watch for events on these two magnificent ships during the Big River Festival in August, as well as a waterski show and river jousting on whaler boats! Combine that with Dog Dock Diving Championships and snowball throwing competitions and Big River Festival is sure to entertain. It’s all happening August 21 through to the 30th! Brockville is blessed with stunning scenery, beautiful architecture and history and there is plenty to do in Brockville every day! Take in a show at the Brockville Arts Centre located in the heart of historic downtown also hosts one of the area’s top art galleries in its lobby. This beautiful 700-seat theatre boasts air-conditioned comfort, fine acoustics, full accessibility and phonic in-ear devices for those with hearing disabilities. Young ones in tow? The Aquatarium is Brockville’s marine discovery centre. Its many interactive exhibits will keep kids of all ages busy; including a fun ropes course. Young and old alike will love watching the live otters (especially at feeding time) and enjoy meeting the AQ’s latest rescue animal, Justin Beaver!

Explore history dating back to the 1770’s at the Brockville Museum. This year they have a special exhibit of the works by artist Prudence Heward who was a contemporary and friend of the famous Canadian ‘Group of Seven’ painters. The Brockville Railway Tunnel no longer has trains rumbling through it; it’s been transformed into a dramatic sound and light show. It’s free and open for your strolling pleasure from April through November. Experience how the rich and famous lived at Fulford Place, an Edwardian-styled mansion with an eclectic flair and gardens designed by Frederick Olmsted of New York’s Central Park fame. ¡

Cape Vincent NEW YORK

COMMUNITY | Cape Vincent

T

ibbetts Point Lighthouse stands tall at the very edge of Lake Ontario where the Great Lakes system funnels into the St. Lawrence River. The lighthouse is an extension of Cape Vincent—the community where lake and river meet—and a place not to be missed by those who want to get an upclose view of this majestic waterway. Cape Vincent is a historic community that takes great pride in its French heritage. The colorful French Festival is held every year near Bastille Day, the second weekend in July. Visitors enjoy strolling through the Village Green for concerts, craft fairs, vintage auto shows and farmers markets throughout the spring, summer and fall. “The Cape” is home to a winery as well as a brewery, both serving locally made beverages. Events take place year round including a Sports Weekend in July which includes the Tibbetts Point Run, Cape Street Hoops 3-on3 basketball and a cornhole tournament. There are outdoor concerts on Saturdays; the “Take a Stroll on Broadway” in August and Oktoberfest in September. Winter brings a Christmas Parade with Lights and the WinterGreen Volleyball Tournament. Some of the best freshwater fishing in the islands begins at Cape Vincent on the St. Lawrence River with easy access to Lake Ontario just upriver. The Cape is also a great place for bicycling, kayaking and paddle boarding. Looking to stay in Cape Vincent? Options range from a historic hotel to longer-term cottage rentals along the shoreline. Horne’s Ferry, the only international auto passenger ferry crossing the St. Lawrence River to Canada, departs May to October. Take the path less traveled by hailing the ferry to picturesque Wolfe Island before heading to metropolitan Kingston on the Canadian side. ¡ Cape Vincent Chamber of Commerce 173 North James St., Cape Vincent, NY 13618 315-654-2481 | capevincent.org thecape@tds.net

1000 Islands International Visitors Guide

Clayton NEW YORK

T

his quintessential river town has undergone a revival in recent years to offer new places to stay, dine and play while preserving the small town vacation traditions that has made it a favorite among visitors for more than a century. Clayton brought in luxury with the 1000 Islands Harbor Hotel, an up-scale Four Diamond Rated AAA hotel perched along the St. Lawrence River. Balance that with the traditional family-run motels and firepit and volleyball net cottage colonies along the water and you learn why more and more people are basing their 1000 Islands vacation in Clayton. The community is harvesting the fruitful products of its inland properties and staking a claim in the craft beverage market with a brewery, two wineries with vineyards and a pair of distilleries. Clayton’s museums immerse visitors in river culture. The Antique Boat Museum is home to North America’s largest collection of wooden and classic boats, many of which still venture onto the river! The Thousand Islands Museum houses the Muskie Hall of Fame. Some say it’s the local fishing community who came up with the famous Thousand Island Dressing that shares the region’s name. The Thousand Islands Arts Center showcases handmade textiles and offers exhibits and workshops for seasonal and short-term visitors. Private galleries and the Clayton Opera House bring the arts to Clayton for all to enjoy. Head downtown and discover small shops focused on river- and cottage-themed apparel, keepsakes and more. Enjoy a quick bite or meticulously planned meal while seated outdoors, often with a stunning river view. Make Clayton your first-stop for diving into the 1000 Islands. ¡ Clayton Chamber of Commerce 517 Riverside Dr., Clayton, NY 13624 315-686-3771 , 800-252-9806 1000islands-clayton.com info@1000islands-clayton.com

here is an unmistakable European joie de vivre here. Sipping espresso at Coffeeco in front of Springer Market Square, cobblestone streets and limestone buildings, the Kingston Public Market that’s filled with locally grown produce during the day later hosts lawn chairs and children for Movies in the Square.

Peruse art shops and alleyways like Antique Alley for collectables and Martello Alley, an artist collective of original and printed works. Another alleyway leads to Chez Piggy for culinary delights made with locally sourced ingredients. Pan Chancho bakes their bread fresh daily and invites you to devour warm maple butter tarts and other sweet treats. Seduced by the wafting aromas of MioGelato, relent to their luscious scoops. Sample Kingston Olive Oil Co.’s international extra virgin oils. Stone City Ales is a thirst-quenching stop. Pair 12 Star Session Ale with candied bacon BLTs. The locally sourced menu at Juniper Café’s patio by the lakeshore is simple and wholesome. Nearby, the Kingston Penitentiary looms ominously, its cavernous halls now open for public tours that illuminate Canada’s oldest and most notorious prison. The grand 19th-century architecture is typical of the “Limestone City.” Atop Fort Henry National Historic Site, views of the harbour, teeming with boats, are panoramic. Explore 19th-century military life in this living history museum, fire a rifle and watch the Sunset Ceremony reenactment of the War of 1812. Allegedly haunted, it’s the place to be on Halloween for Fort Fright.

From Tango Nuevo’s small bites to Chien Noir Bistro’s French cuisine, rustic charm and delicious food abound in Kingston. For a Pan-Canadiana menu head to AquaTerra overlooking the water.
