Only about 250 kilometres from Toronto, Kingston is the perfect getaway for either a day trip, over the long weekend or during school holidays. Once you're there, you can relax and enjoy some of its attractions.
1. Wolfe Island
Wolfe Island is just a 20-minute ferry ride away. There you will find the famous Wolfe Island Bakery serving fresh butter tarts.
2. Kingston Waterfront
Take a leisurely stroll along the waterfront trail, and don't forget your camera while you pose as the missing "I".
3. Kingston City Hall
A self-guided tour
of its City Hall is available. And, as an Australian, I was amazed to learn that Kingston's first female mayor is born in Australia!
4. Thousand Islands
Board the Kingston 1000 Islands Cruises
for a wonderful experience of the small cottage islands of the Admiralty group. I really think that you have to see them to believe they exist.
5. Sally's Roti Shop
Sally's Roti Shop
serves up reasonably-priced authentic Caribbean cuisine in downtown Kingston. A must-try while you're there.
