Clayton was literally built with shopping in mind. Most of downtown was constructed in the late 19th century to meet the needs of shoppers coming from both land and water.
A leisurely stroll down our main streets brings you to an array of unique shops including clothing boutiques, jewelry shops, as well as shops offering 1000 Islands collectibles to take home as a keepsake.
Maybe you are looking to take home a taste of the 1000 Islands from one of several gourmet food emporiums including “River Rat” Cheese or a bottle of the famous “Original” Thousand Islands Dressing that was created right here.
Be sure to look up while you stroll our main streets. The upper stories share attractive architectural features- window crowns, and cast-iron cornices. If you are interested in architecture, be sure to pop into the Chamber of Commerce for their walking tour brochure. It’s a self-guided passport into the intriguing history and charm of Clayton’s commercial buildings, homes and churches.
