Making the Most of the Last Days of Summer

90% of Stone & South's suites have a view like this, looking out over the St. Lawrence River.
There are only 12 days left before Labour Day — which means that it’s our last chance to celebrate the warm weather and the final days of summer, before the kids go back to school. We’ve put together a list of our favourite epic experiences in the Thousand Islands to help you find a way to end your summer with an amazing adventure.

SkyWood Eco Adventures
Climb through the treetops, zip past the scenery, and explore a series of scenic and exhilarating courses at SkyWood Eco Adventures. The treetop courses are both adult and child-friendly and range from close-to-the-ground beginner courses to high-flying advanced courses that can suit any type of climber in any age group. Tackle one of their puzzle games or take the adrenaline pumping zip tour for an experience you’ll never forget.

Boldt Castle
One of the most loved attractions in the Thousand Islands is the historic Boldt Castle. Built at the turn of the century by the proprietor of the Waldorf Astoria Hotel, George C. Boldt, this beautiful Rhineland-style castle on Heart Island was intended as a display of love for George’s wife, Louise. Today it’s a restored and well-maintained tourist destination, full of history, romance, and tragedy. Whether you’re looking for a romantic place to spend the day or a historic exploration for the whole family, Boldt Castle is always a favourite.

Incredible Theatre
At Stone & South, we’re incredibly lucky. Our neighbourhood is filled with local creativity, artistry, and  excitement — and we have the best theatre. Right next door to Stone & South is the Thousand Islands Playhouse, a nationally recognized venue with fantastic performances. Gananoque also has the newly renovated Royal Theatre with its unique repertoire of music and shows. Both theatres offer a great night out and shows you’ll be talking about for days.

Thousand Islands Helicopter Tour

What better way to see all of the Thousand Islands than by air? The Thousand Islands Helicopter Tours company offers flights over the Thousand Islands, Kingston, Boldt Castle and Singer Castle, as well as several excursion packages that will leave you breathless and surprised. The best view is from the sky, and sailing over the Thousand Islands in a helicopter will be one trip you’ll never forget.
Camping, Beaches, Cottage Rentals
You can go hiking, biking, boating, camping, and even ‘glamping’ (glamorous camping) in the Thousand Islands. Whether you want to pitch a tent by the riverside and spend the night under the stars or if you’d rather have a roof over your head at the end of the day, you’ll find a good place to spend the day, night, or week in the Thousand Islands. The St. Lawrence Parks Commission keeps a list of campsites, rental cabins, and national parks and has the resources to help you plan an incredible trip.
The Arthur Child Heritage Museum in Gananoque
Explore History
The Thousand Islands is filled with history, and you can find museums, exhibits, and historic buildings in almost every location. In Gananoque, the Arthur Child Heritage Museum in Joel Stone Park has fascinating exhibits on for Canada 150 this season, and the Thousand Islands Boat Museum always has something interesting to do. For a full history immersion, you can visit Upper Canada Village — a fully functional mid-19th-century village in Mallorytown.
Some other nearby historical sites include Brockville Museum and Brockville Railway Tunnel, the Old Stone Mill in Delta, and the Penitentiary Museum and Fort Henry in Kingston. No matter what destination you choose, you’ll find yourself fascinated and learn something new.
