You would have to go to Victoria BC for any view as good as you see in down town Kingston Ontario. The Wolfe Island Ferry operates hourly year round which is a nice touch, but in the summer when the Cruise ships, power and sail boats arrive it is fantastic. If you can catch the CORK sailing competitions in August you will enjoy a real treat. Some of the best restaurants that you can find anywhere are located in this area.

Kingston's strategic import is clear when you see how Lake Ontario ends and the St. Lawrence river begins right here. Plus the Rideau Canal that wends up to Ottawa. The waterfront has had a commercial past, long ago, decades of neglect, and in recent decades a renaissance of high end hotels, restaurants and walkways. It adds a charming, historic, and scenic dimension to the town.

From the marinas, to the free ferry ride to Wolfe Island and back, to the ‘John A Macdonald’ steam engine, to the many old building edifices (look up to see dates and original name) - enjoy.

The waterfront by City Hall in Kingston is a charming place to visit with plenty of great activities including, access to 2 different 1000 Island boat cruises, outdoor concerts in the park, street vendors, and the Trolly that provides awesome tours of the city.

We love the Island Star and try to have diner on that boat at least once each season - especially enjoy the humour and music of Billy Bridger on that cruise
