Anywhere you go, the 1000 Islands is truly a fun and friendly destination. Stroll through village downtowns, have fun on the water all day long or take in a drive-in movie at night. Have a ball on mini-links throughout the region, get behind the wheel of a go-kart or visit zoos and aquariums focused on local forest and marine life.

Come in the spring and smell the sweet aroma of maple sugar shacks on both sides of the U.S./Canada border. Apple orchards are scattered throughout the region, making autumn a peak visitor period for savoring cider and fresh-made donuts.

Visual and performing arts are abundant in the 1000 Islands with many venues and special arts events presented by local organizations. Throughout the summer, visitors enjoy a lively schedule of theater productions, gallery exhibits and special museum shows.
