Natives to this region call it the "Garden of the Great Spirit." Many people still consider the 1000 Islands the most beautiful place on earth.

However, it's also the friendly atmosphere, fresh outdoors and laidback pace that make this area a spot to inspire the spirit and renew the soul. The Gananoque Boat Line offers a variety of cruises, including shipwreck tours and visits to Boldt Castle. The Thousand Islands OLG Charity Casino is a must to test Lady Luck, since Canada doesn't tax casino winnings. The Parkway is an excellent choice to explore hiking trails for outdoor lovers.

Other activities include 1000 Islands kayaking trips, Skydive Gananoque, BMX Track and Skateboard Park, Thousand Islands Playhouse and Gananoque Recreation Centre. Visit Ground Zero Paintball, Smugglers Glen Golf Course, Green Acres Golf Course, or the Dive Shop for a fun-filled adventure.
