About Kingston

Kingston is a beautiful lake city where the past and present intermingle at every turn, offering visitors of all ages and interests something to enjoy. History enthusiasts should visit Fort Henry National Historic Site to see remnants of old military conquest. Next, head to Bellevue House, the former home of Canada's first Prime Minister and perhaps the best example of the old-world Victorian architecture in the city.

Located on the northern tip of Lake Ontario, Kingston is brimming with watersports, bike trails, and mountain hikes for those that want to immerse themselves in nature—the Thousand Islands National Park and Frontenac Provincial Park, situated just outside of the city, are two highlights.

Kingston also harbors a bustling urban culture comprising live music, antique markets, and culinary excellence that is best experienced simply by walking around and following your eyes and nose. Raise a glass in any of Kingston's award-winning wineries or microbreweries before heading downtown to dine at one of the many international restaurants.

The city is well-placed and offers easy connections via rail and bus to major urban centers like Toronto and Montreal. Norman Rogers Airport is the quickest way to get around regionally, while the historic Rideau Canal provides Ottawa-bound travelers a slower but incredibly scenic mode of transport.
