Thousand Islands - Seaway

Escape to the Thousand Islands!


The Thousand Islands region is perfect for those seeking an escape. Travel the Great Lakes Seaway Trail, a 500-mile scenic route that skirts past waterfront towns along Lake Erie, the Niagara River, all the way to Niagara Falls.   

Boundless summer adventures include fairy-tale castles, trophy fishing and balloon rides.  Come for the events like Bill Johnston's Pirate Days each August in Alexandria Bay - everyone becomes a pirate! 

Boats are a natural fit so take a scenic cruise or traverse the waterways on your own. Come explore the 28 state parks -- ideal for hiking, camping and fishing - a perfect way to spend a summer day.
