The Ogdensburg-Prescott International Bridge provides Canadians and Americans with convenient access to all points in the United States or Canada.
Relax by the River at Mallorytown Landing and learn about the St. Lawrence Islands at the mainlands Visitor Information Centre.
Spot wildlife on the Jones Creek trails, part of Frontenac Arch Biosphere, and admire the biodiversity of the St. Lawrence National Parks. See the Parks' Canada 'What's New' section to learn more.
Visit the Landon Bay Centre and enjoy an extensive network of walking trails and a scenic look-out, that has long been recognized as the best natural view in the Thousand Islands area.
Notice that Aubrey Island is the most Western Island in the Park and Stovin Island is the most Eastern Island. The distance between them is about 50 km.
The 'Thousand Islands region' will surprise you with its Victorian houses, wild islands, nature preserves offering a home to a variety of animals, major landmarks such as Boldt Castle and Singer Castle. Another peculiarity are several shipwrecks, some of them can be seen from the surface.
