Located at the north east corner of Lake Ontario and huddled between the mouths of the St Lawrence and Cataraqui Rivers, it's no surprise that Kingston has been dubbed the freshwater sailing capital of the world. Hop aboard a boat, take to the water and embark on a tour of the Thousand Islands, where you can enjoy oudoor activities galore. Besides sporting activities, Kingston is a great spot for history and architecture lovers alike. Its colonial history and strategic military role can be pieced together from the marine vessels that fill its docks; the small but fascinating Marine Museum of the Great Lakes; and Forts Henry and Frontenac.
Meanwhile, its charming 19th century buildings - including the waterfront City Hall - are the reason for its "Limestone City" nickname. End your Kingston holidays, if you dare, by joining one of the nightly Haunted Walks where you'll uncover the darker side of Kingston's history while exploring the Sydenham Ward and downtown.
