So what’s there to do in the winter? We get asked that question all the time.
First off, there is the outdoor stuff, much of which is covered over at our Outdoor experience page.
For indoor fun to keep the kids happy, head to the Aquatarium, a state-of-the-art learning and discovery center created to inspire wonder and curiosity about all that there is to see and do in the 1000 Islands. The Aquatarium includes a tank where you can communicate with divers as well as kids games, a replica of an island post office and more.
No kids? No problem! Winter is the perfect time to sneak off to the tasting rooms and lounges stocked with wines, brews and spirits made from right here in the 1000 Islands. Keep an eye on the craft beverage spots for entertainment too; trivia nights, food pairings and live music get sprinkled throughout the winter as a way to keep customers coming in the door.
Want to explore a little more? Several art museums and private galleries stay open throughout the winter. The feeling is if the artist is in-house working, why not keep the door open? It’s a neat opportunity to not only see art inspired by the beautiful 1000 Islands but to interact directly with the artists!
