Great view of the islands. There's so many to see with different sizes. So many house styles. The cruise we took was great it was a little over an hour with breakfast on board. Highly recommend.

The 1000 islands are beautiful... take a boat tour, have a nice dinner, visit the shops. ONE BIG WEAKNESS OF ALEX BAY: THE HOTELS ARE NOT GOOD. I've stayed at multiple locations and they're just run down and out dates. Do what Clayton did... put...More

My cousins had a cottage on Stave Island and I went there many times as a child. We've been back many time as adults and we still love. Go on a boat cruise or rent a boat yourself. A relaxing day!

check with Grey Hound bus. I would guess could get you there.
Into which airport should we fly? Do you recommend car rental?

Best bet is probably Syracuse. There is a small airport at Watertown but the car rental options, flights to and from, will be better at Syracuse.
Thinking of a 4 night stay with friends in the Alexandria Bay area this October 14 - 18. I believe it's off season so will there be enough to do and see to keep us occupied? Perhaps a couple day trips? Will the town's shops and restaurants still be open for business for leisurely strolls? Suggestions appreciated. Thank you!
