Wing's Castle
Wing's Castle is an American marvel. Located 75 miles north of New York City, the castle was the brain child of artists Peter and Toni Ann Wing and 40 years later is still under construction. Along with a love affair of castles came a love of anything old. Be mesmerized by the museum of antique memorabilia and collectibles, everything from military to primitive trinkets.

The house has been featured on HGTV's Extreme Homes, and has been the backdrop of many music albums, movies, and fashion shoots. Wing's architecture has been compared to that of Antoni Gaudi, and his life's work to that of Michelangelo, a true Renaissance Man.

Singer Castle
Singer Castle is the only castle on the river to be completed, fully furnished and resided in during the heyday of the 'great builders' and industrials in New York. The castle remained in the possession of the original Bourne family from its construction in 1905 until the mid 1960s.

Enjoy a 45-minute guided tour of Singer Castle on Dark Island, including four floors of the castle featuring the Great Hall, Library, dining room, breakfast room, terrace, drawing room, Loggia, Wicker Room, bedrooms, guest rooms, and 4th floor dormitory.

Tours include walking up hill to the castle and multiple steps inside the castle. No one is allowed in the castle unless escorted by a Singer Castle Docent.

Boldt Castle
Enjoy a self guided tour of the magnificent castle and grounds of famous Boldt Castle on Heart Island. Begun in 1900 by Waldorf Astoria's George Boldt as a summer home for his wife Louise, this turreted stone marvel was nearly completed but never lived in.

New York State Capitol
New York State's Capitol is a stunning and beautiful example of 19th century architecture. Truly a masterpiece, great care was devoted to the planning of this building and today it remains widely recognized among state capitols.

St. Lawrence River Boat Cruise

*St. Lawrence Seaway
*Grenadier Island
*Sisters Island Light
*Oak Island
*Inglenuk, once owned by the famous artist, Frederic Remington
