A Local Canadian Travel Guide to What To Do in Kingston Ontario

Kingston is a very walkable city. Your first stop should be the Visitor Experience Centre. Located in an 1830’s Railway Station in the downtown, you can get information on attractions, accommodation, food, as well as purchase tickets for Kingston’s many attractions. There is also a host of free or by donation places to visit.

Experience Kingston Outdoors

Welcome to the Limestone City of Kingston, Ontario - Kayaking and Watersports on Lake Ontario

When you visit the “Freshwater Sailing Capital” of Lake Ontario you do not need to bring your own equipment. There are several places in the Kingston area where you can rent sailboats, canoes, kayaks, paddles boards and bikes. The area is also great for scuba diving. If spending some time at a park is what you are looking for, there are several in and around the city.

If you would rather not do all the work, you can take the free Wolfe Island ferry across to Wolfe Island. Enjoy the breeze, water views and a great view of downtown Kingston. You don’t even have to get off at the other end, but if you choose to, the village of Marysville at the ferry dock has several places to grab a snack, beverage or full meal.

In Kingston, History Awaits

Welcome to the Limestone City of Kingston, Ontario - Kingston City Hall and Market

Historic City Hall, located directly across from the Visitor Experience Centre, is a stunning neo-classical landmark. Built in 1842, this building was designed to be a multipurpose structure that not only included government offices but a police department and market. Evidence of which is still seen today. Free guided tours (Mid-May to Mid-October) and self-guided tours are available daily.

Why not take a walking tour with Kingston Walks, to learn about the history of Canada’s First Capital? On your walking tour, you will stroll past magnificent limestone buildings, over 100 of which now house restaurants. Learn about Kingston in the 19th century and how it has transformed into one of the most livable cities in Canada. It was the first political, economic and cultural capital of Canada and was the home of our first Prime Minister, Sir John A. MacDonald. Kingston has been dubbed “Canada’s Museum Capital” by many.
