NatureUnited States of America
You don't have to think of remote destinations when you hear the word archipelago. America's very own little-known groups of islands are just waiting to be explored.
1. Thousands Islands
The Thousand Islands constitute an archipelago of 1,864 islands that stretches across the Canada-U.S border over Lake Ontario and the St. Lawrence River. This group of islands was once the home of pirates and wealthy patriarchs but has since become a boater's paradise, fisherman's playground, hiker's haven and a cyclist's waterfront adventure. Located on this beautiful archipelago is Singer Castle, a 113-year-old, 28-room mansion, possible to rent.
