Cruise the fabled waters where the mighty St. Lawrence River meets Lake Ontario while marveling at the necklace of 1000 islands… that are sure to take your breath away. Mysterious castles, Millionaire’s Row, and an excursion through the Erie Canal are just some of this trips delights.
Our journey begins this morning to Upstate New York and the beautiful 1000 Islands. There are thousands of islands both large and small where the mighty St. Lawrence River meets Lake Ontario near the resort community of Alexandria Bay, NY. Appropriately enough this region is called “The Thousand Islands” and our accommodations for two evenings will be at the Riveredge Resort, a 4-Diamond award winning hotel, located directly on the water. From the Riveredge you will see many large ships passing through the St. Lawrence Seaway, the main channel from the upper Great Lakes to the sea. Before dinner enjoy a Tours of Distinction exclusive wine and cheese reception. Dinner is included at the hotel and weather permitting we will go into town and watch a famous sunset over the St. Lawrence.
