Thousand Islands Museum

Lonely Planet review

A beautiful drive that can easily be done in a day from Niagara, with plenty of scenic stops as you progress alongside Lake Ontario and the Seaway Trail, will bring you to the Thousand Islands , a stunning collection of small islands dotted with turn-of-the-century dream homes. Head for the towns of Oswego and Sackets Harbor to Alexandria Bay , taking in the tiny fishing villages and small communities along the bright blue water. If you don’t have time to visit the islands as you drive through, take a detour to the village of Clayton to check out the Thousand Islands Museum .
