It’s called the ‘Thousand Islands’ but even cooler is that there are actually more than 1,800 sub-continental pieces of land that make up the region. The islands, in the St. Lawrence River, straddle the border of the U.S. and Canada. Today, the region is a hub for outdoor enthusiasts who come for hiking, boating and kayaking. But the history of the area can be explored much deeper in places like Gananoque.

The Victorian town, in Ontario, on the Canadian side, is often called the gateway to the 1,000 Islands. In this video we have show you some of the top spots to visit on a trip, including a cruise with the Gananoque Boat Line to spots like the massive Boldt Castle, a tour with 1,000 Islands Helicopter Tour for incredible aerial views and a bike and picnic along the the Rideau Canal. When it comes to a place to stay, you don’t want to miss the Gananoque Inn which offers easy access for water activities like boating and fishing and is walking distance to the main street for breweries and restaurants.

  • A visit to a Dude Ranch is about the cowboy way of life, which is why I couldn't wait to cowgirl up and try my hand at skeet shooting Sylvan Dale Guest Ranch. I wasn't able to shatter any clays but did manage to hit one with a single bb- that counts right?

  • I had yet to visit a Dude Ranch and take a roping lesson and good thing the dummy was stationary! Wranglers at Sylvan Dale Guest Ranch in Visit Loveland Colorado took me step by step on technique- good thing they are patient! Thanks for keeping me super comfy with the Ava top from Yala.

  • You just can't visit Loveland, CO without a stop to Benson Sculpture Garden. Inside, there are 154 sculptures but it was pretty easy to find a favorite. Visit Loveland Colorado

  • I was fascinated visiting Art Castings of Colorado in Loveland, CO - a bronze art foundry. During a tour, you will be able to see the process step by step. The company’s clients are as famous as Disney Pixar- Woody here (still in process of being finished) was one of my favorite pieces. Other creations are massive- like the life size mastodon outside the Denver Museum of Nature Science. Visit Loveland Colorado
