Take a trip to Kingston, Ontario and step into a magical world of history and scenic beauty. Canada’s Kingston, Ontario is located between Toronto and the nation’s capital city of Ottawa. Located at the junction of Lake Ontario and the St. Lawrence River, Kingston is a unique waterfront destination.
A great way to begin sightseeing is to hop aboard the Confederation Tour Trolley. Especially after a long day of travelling, you’ll find it relaxing to sit back and let tour guides introduce you to the charming city. The Tour Trolley ticket kiosk is conveniently located on Ontario Street in Confederation Park opposite the City Hall.
Kingston’s numerous historic sites retain much of the ambience of the era in which they were built. The limestone architecture makes this city uniquely attractive. You might even call its architecture “romantic”.
Booking into one of the excellent waterfront hotels makes it convenient to walk to restaurants, shops, and the tour boat dock.
Not to be missed is the ever-popular 1000 Island Boat Cruise. Cruising the shores of the St. Lawrence River is a photographer’s dream. As you cruise along the lush tree-lined shores, enjoy scenic views of the cottage-sprinkled islands. You might also choose to stop in to tour the spectacular Boldt Castle, or to stay aboard and simply enjoy a lunch or dinner cruise.
Kingston is a great destination for a well-rounded family vacation offering something for everyone.
