Snapshot of Kingston

Kingston – the fresh-water sailing capital of North America – has a vibrant waterfront culture and streets alive with music and events. This friendly city offers a lively summer getaway with history, stunning architecture, sightseeing, a vibrant downtown and excellent dining choices... there are more restaurants per capita than anywhere else in Canada. You can experience the many charms of Kingston by foot or by water – with downtown boutiques, enchanting music festivals, cruises along the waterfront and Canada’s longest running Farmer’s Market, to name just a few of its charms.

Fort Henry has rich history, daily interpretive programming and weekly Sunset Ceremonies. The new state of the art Discovery Centre features modern interactive exhibits with projection and touch screen technologies, a new retail store, guest cafe, Great Hall and an adjoining two-tier outdoor patio and BBQ area.
