Things to do

At the gateway to the 1000 Islands and the UNESCO designated Rideau Canal, Kingston is a city rich in history, culture, critically acclaimed attractions and cuisine. Kingston is touched by the currents of Lake Ontario, the St Lawrence River and the Cataraqui River, and as such has a colourful history impacted by people from different places in the United States and Canada.
