Known as the “Limestone City,” Kingston boasts many grand old buildings constructed from local limestone, including City Hall and the Frontenac County Court House, which was originally intended to house Canada’s Parliament.

 

The city’s setting is appealing to visitors and residents alike, located on three bodies of water. Kingston sits on the shore of Lake Ontario, where visitors can enjoy blue waters and skies along lakeside paths, or rent sailboats and kayaks. It’s also at the inlet of the St. Lawrence River, and a departure point for boat cruises to Thousand Islands National Park. The Rideau Canal, a UNESCO designated World Heritage site, also begins in Kingston.

 

Twenty-one National Historic Sites of Canada are located in Kingston, including Fort Henry, built during the War of 1812 to protect Kingston from potential attacks from the United States.
