These 20 Photos Of Thousand Islands Are Too Pretty For Words

Thousand Islands blew me off the planet in a “how can I move here again?” sort of way.

With 1,800 islands (maybe this place should be renamed to Almost Two Thousand Islands) sprawling the St. Lawrence River, Thousand Islands is a must-see destination along the United States and Canada Border.

Once a quiet weekend getaway for Gilded Age millionaires, this buzzing twenty-first century summer tourist destination has always been postcard perfect.

a few of my favorite travel snaps

This is my new home…just kidding! I have no idea who owns this house but they have the best view ever.
Getting such an intense Game of Thrones vibe. Alternatively, we could start a bonfire (probably not allowed) and wait for the fairy folk to arrive.
Another gorgeous vacation home that I’m secretly planning on moving into….
Unreasonably pretty
Cabin in the woods
Anchoring myself to a special memory…this scene
Just keep swimming, just keep swimming…
Would you believe all of these pictures are unedited? I didn’t mess with the color or lighting at all. That’s how naturally beautiful this place is.
Drifting into dreams
Land ahead…and behind…and to both the sides
I live for views like this (and breakfast coco puffs).
Looks like Skull Island, which would explain how King Kong made it to NYC so quickly
This is bliss.
This is even more bliss.
All the architecture here just makes me want to sing, dance, twirl, and sing some more…
There are REAL cottages. Enough said.
Crossing the border
Visiting Boldt Castle from the distance
Thought I’d end with the highlight of my trip: Boldt Castle. Technically, it’s a mansion but who cares? It’s pretty.

    I am lucky enough to have just purchased a tiny waterfront cottage in the Thousand Islands and I can attest to the beauty of the area. Come for a visit, you may just stay.
