Alexandria Bay Reviews

3 reviews
Alexandria Bay, NY nestled in the heart of the Thousand Island on the beautiful Saint Lawrence River, is a great tourist destination. During the summer months this little town is hoping with all sorts of tourist visiting Boldt Castle and Singer Castle. There are a lot of activities to par take in during the summer that range from Pirates day to Craft Fairs once a month. There is a local beach for swimming.
During the winter months most all of the stores are closed and it is very quiet. We have some winter activities that take place. One of the most popular one is the Polar Bear dip. This happens every February at Bonnie Castle.

Alexandria Bay is a very close-knit community. Its composed of small mom and pop businesses that are only open in the summer months due to tourist season. There are churches everywhere and the nightlife is decent in the summer .
Smalltown waterside feel, excellent bars, restaurants, docks, environment. Many other great businesses as well.
