It is not a place to visit must, and I was not expecting much. Nice nature and clean water. A lot better than expected. Great place to visit.

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.

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!
