You Gotta Visit This 'Fairy Tale Castle' Less Than 3 Hours Away From Montreal

Summer road trip alert!
You Gotta Visit This 'Fairy Tale Castle' Less Than 3 Hours Away From Montreal

Thousand Islands Ontario is also known as 'sightseer's paradise', and is less than 3 hours outside of Montreal. I know the question you're dying to ask - are there actually 1,000 islands. In short, yes. That's what makes this lower St-Lawrence region so beautiful.

Thousand Islands is a cluster of islands straddling the Canadian and US border and consistent of 1,864 islands. Boldt Castle is actually located in New York state but can be easily accessed as it's a popular tourist destination.

There are several tour companies that offer sightseeing tours around the most popular islands, including Boldt Castle. If you're more about taking your own tour - that can be done too.
