New York Scenic Routes

The 285-mile drive from Dwight D. Eisenhower Lock to Niagara Falls runs parallel to the St. Lawrence River and Lake Ontario on the state's northwest border.  Driving southwest, a collection of islets known as the Thousand Islands become visible, some of which are home to Victorian mansions accessible only by boat.  Tibbets Point Lighthouse, built in 1827, offers sweeping panoramic views from the western tip of Cape Vincent, and Sodus Bay Lighthouse overlooks Chimney Bluffs in Fair Haven.  The route also runs through Rochester and Lewiston, ending at the American side of Niagara Falls.  More information about scenic roads in New York is available on this New York State Scenic Byways page.
