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.

But I found Steamboat Springs, perfect for a weekend getaway that included a comfy stay at Steamboat Grand, some local shopping at classic spots like FM Light & Sons, a sunset gondola ride and happy hour at Salt & Lime, where margs & tacos start at 3 bucks.

  • Indoor or outdoor, I’m always up for new challenges and having comfy workout gear by brands like 90 Degrees by Reflex is key. From capris to tops, I love that the price points don't have sticker shock, either. 90 Degree by Reflex

  • We can make the most of our time at the beach thanks to RIO Brands. We love this shade because it's lightweight, packable and large enough so we can fit two chairs inside. But the peace of mind knowing Everett's shielded from the sun is the best part.
