An emerging hotspot, the Thousand Islands region on the border of the U.S. and Canada are welcoming visitors worldwide, as explained by singer Castle General Manager Thomas A. Weldon, and castle staff along with other business owners and marketers who are trying hard to attract more clientele.
To quote Mr. Weldon, who controls the venue on Dark Island near Chippewa Bay on the St. Lawrence River, ‘I see the whole region is improving in tourism.’ He is one of the several seasonal and year-round operators who are trying hard to improve their businesses and lure new visitors to the North Country and taking part in a statewide initiation to grow the tourism sector. Mr. Weldon believes that everybody can make improvements to attract more visitors to the place as he and others in the industry “are working hard to make improvements.”
With every passing year, many business owners assert that their operations are increasing time and again, and few nominated officials and marketers will say that local tourism is growing. However, others claim they go through obstructions to gather additional interest from outside their area, but have self-assurance that majority of the businesses will perk up and their area will grow as a key attraction.
“We realize the potential (tourism) has in our community,” Canton Town Supervisor David T. Button said.
