WATERTOWN AND THE 1,000 ISLANDS At the western edge of northern New York, near the shores of Lake Ontario, Watertown is the gateway to a beautiful area known as the 1,000 Islands. This popular destination comprises towns and islands located in New York as well as southeast Ontario, making the 1,000 Islands an unusual international tourism area. Groups that visit the 1,000 Islands can explore scenic areas and historic sites on both sides of the border — provided travelers remember to bring their passports. Several companies offer water taxi rides, ferry service and sightseeing cruises on Lake Ontario. Nature trails, preserves and other private and public areas provide additional opportunities for observing the area's flora and fauna. Historic sites in Watertown and the 1,000 Islands tell numerous stories from the area's past. Travelers can see sites where fighting took place during the War of 1812, visit the Rock Island Lighthouse and Tibbetts Point Lighthouse, and visit enormous private island mansions in the area created by barons of the Gilded Age.
