ABOUT ST. LAWRENCE COUNTY
St. Lawrence County is located in Northern New York along the Canadian border. The Adirondack Mountains lie to the east, the Thousand Islands to the south, and the St. Lawrence River to the northwest. Situated on the Canadian border, the county benefits from trade with Canada. The region has an abundance of hydropower, providing affordable power for residents of the area. The county also has a low crime rate and strong K-12 education.
According to the St. Lawrence County Industrial Development Agency, “The County’s relatively sparse population (42 people per square mile) has the advantage of affording ample acreages of greenspace and fresh water that not only attract tourists but are also key components of the quality of life in the County for residents who want to hunt, fish, boat, engage in winter sports, or simply enjoy the great outdoors. The southwestern part of the County is in the Thousand Islands region and about a third of the County lies in the Adirondack Park – in which the County’s Five Ponds wilderness has one of the last stands of virgin timber in the State.”
ABOUT THE THOUSAND ISLANDS
According to Visit 1000 Island, “Anywhere you go, the 1000 Islands is truly a fun and friendly destination. Stroll through village downtowns, have fun on the water all day long or take in a drive-in movie at night. Have a ball on mini-links throughout the region, get behind the wheel of a go-kart or visit zoos and aquariums focused on local forest and marine life.
Come in the spring and smell the sweet aroma of maple sugar shacks on both sides of the U.S./Canada border. Apple orchards are scattered throughout the region, making autumn a peak visitor period for savoring cider and fresh-made donuts.
Visual and performing arts are abundant in the 1000 Islands with many venues and special arts events presented by local organizations. Throughout the summer, visitors enjoy a lively schedule of theater productions, gallery exhibits and special museum shows.”
