The Thousand Islands region is made up of 1,864 islands splattered on the Saint Lawrence River between the U.S.-Canadian border. It is a terribly scenic region worth the trip up north, 3½ hours from Albany. With islands come bridges. A series of bridges connect New York to Ontario, and one segment on the New York side of the border has a pedestrian walkway. There is something alluring about bridges. They’re magical to look at. Unique pieces of architectural art crossing waters and connecting once separate lands in harmonious union. The Thousand Islands Bridge [43373 Collins Landing Rd, Alexandria Bay, NY 13607] rises high above the Saint Lawrence on a beautiful day, sea foam green against a pale blue sky.
The exhilarating walk along the bridge was a great way to take in the lay out of the land, snap some pictures, and get some exercise! A fun and free activity for your trip to the Thousand Islands area.
