Thousand Islands

Looking over a vast expanse, we could see the floating houses in the St. Lawrence River….. just open the door and step onto the water.

That was our view from one of the cruises, which are very popular in Thousand Islands and it’s the best way to see all the lavish mansions and castles and even a few uninhabited pieces of land. With over 1800 islands, this place historically was a famous summer vacation spot in New York.

Even today, it makes a fabulous summer trip. And on our visit there, the cruise tour lasted around two hours and took us by the famous Boldt Castle and the beautiful islands – it sure was a breathtaking sight.

Love exploring new places? We do, too. Welcome to 'Traveldefined'. This blog is a way of storytelling for me - mainly, about our travel adventures. My Husband and I - we are fond of touring around the country, enjoy delving into history, love clicking memorable pictures and are firm believers of spontaneous road trips (our all-time favorites).

    1. Good website! I truly love how it is easy on my eyes and the data are well written. I’m wondering how I could be notified whenever a new post has been made. I have subscribed to your RSS feed which must do the trick! Have a great day! geeacafccdba


  1. Lovely! Place. But what accentuates it is your photography. You are a wonderful photographer. Your cover picture with NY skyline with Empire State Building lying amidst them is the best so far I’ve seen. And is the bridge The Brooklyn Bridge?


  2. What a fun place! I’d like to visit someday but am glad I don’t live there (what with climate change and all). Thanks for sharing this place with us through your beautiful photography.


    1. Thank you. Glad you liked the pictures.
      I agree with you, It already must be difficult to manage and with the changing climate it might become more difficult.
      Thank you for stopping by and sharing your thoughts. I really appreciate it.


  3. I can’t believe I lived in New York and never knew about this place! Looks absolutely gorgeous. I especially love the Boldt Castle. I wonder if these Thousand Islands are the same islands that the salad dressing refers to!


    1. Glad you liked the pictures. Its a beautiful place to visit.
      Yes, you are absolutely right – the name of the dressing comes from this place itself.
      Thank you for stopping by and sharing your thoughts. I really appreciate it.
