"Kingston's beautiful colonial streets teem with quaint shops and restaurants, while sails flutter in the harbour below."
Situated where the St. Lawrence meets Lake Ontario, Kingston has always been famous for it's waterfront. One of the premier destinations in the world for fresh-water sailing and pleasure boating, Kingston has easy access to Lake Ontario, the St. Lawrence River, the Rideau Canal, and the breathtaking Thousand Islands, a popular summer destination.
Three times a week, there is a large farmer's market behind City Hall; its the perfect place to wander amongst the stalls, looking for fresh food, baked goods, and hand-crafted wares. During the summer months, Confederation Park comes alive with an incredible array of festivals and concerts, including Limestone City Blues Festival, the weekly 'Music in the Park' series, and the Kingston Buskers Rendezvous, featuring street performers from all over the world!
Due to its close proximity to so many natural wonders, Kingston is the perfect stepping stone to explore this historic region. Take the free ferry to Wolfe Island for the day, explore the gorgeous wine region of Prince Edward County, or hop on a riverboat and explore the legendary 1000 Islands.
