The Best Things to See and Do in Kingston, ON

Scenically snuggled on the shores of Lake Ontario, Kingston, ON is nearly equidistant to both Montreal and Toronto, and an easy drive from upstate New York, making it an ideal day trip spot. Kingston was the original capital of Canada, in part because of its location at the juncture of both Lake Ontario and the St. Lawrence River and its importance in the trade economy. While the city’s tenure as the nation’s capital was short-lived (1841-1843) Kingston boasts a rich history, which means numerous attractions and points of interest for tourists.
