    Historic riches and natural beauty

    The first capital of the Province of Canada, Kingston was originally a French trading post and military fort. No longer a political center, it remains a vital military installation and enchanting tourist destination with its sweeping rivers, myriad islands, and beautifully preserved sandstone architecture. Watch the sun set over thickly forested islands on an inspiring dinner cruise, step back in time with historical tours of military and prison facilities, or stroll the waterfront at sunset. Warm up in Kingston vacation rentals, then celebrate the snowy winter with Nordic skiing or keep cozy indoors at a dramatic play or soul-stirring concert.

    Snow-covered trails and sunny beaches in Kingston

    When snow falls in Kingston, pull on your snow boots and down jackets and head to local parks for invigorating cross-country skiing, or rent a pair of snowshoes and trek through the drifts for gorgeous views of forests and fields. Or, embrace your inner hockey player and take to the ice for a fun afternoon of skating. As the summer sun rises over the St. Lawrence River, hop aboard a ferry to one of the islands and spend a day at the beach. You can also hit the trails for a cycling tour before going to town in time for an outdoor concert.

    Explore old Kingston

    Make a beeline for Fort Henry and experience a glimpse of military life in the 19th century. If you’re here in the summer, don't miss the Sunset Ceremony, a multi-media spectacular with 1860s military drills, simulated battle, canon fire, and fireworks. Kingston vacation rentals are a great place to put your feet up after exploring the Kingston Penitentiary, once home to Canada's most notorious criminals, and tasting your way through flaky pastries and other snacks on a scrumptious food tour. Before climbing into your own comfy bed, get your nighttime shivers on a haunted tour of Fort Henry or Kingston city, complete with spine-tingling ghost stories.

    Fun in Kingston in all seasons

    Kingston has four distinct seasons. Winter transforms the city into a wonderland of snow and ice, a gorgeous time to bundle up in your warmest clothes and head to City Hall for outdoor ice skating, then warm up with a choice of hot chocolate flavors. Or, head over to Fort Henry Hill for a thrilling toboggan ride. Summer is warm and sunny, ideal for cruising around the islands and catching a breathtaking sunset over the river. Spring can be rainy and fall chilly so don't leave your Kingston vacation rentals without an umbrella and warm jacket.

    River life in Kingston

    Nestled at the eastern end of Lake Ontario where white-capped waves crash against the shoreline, Kingston is situated at the beginning of the glistening St. Lawrence River, and the mouth of the Cataraqui. Tucked between Toronto and Montreal, it's right across the river from Howe, Simcoe, and Wolfe islands where lighthouses guide sailors safely home, and only a short boat ride from the border with New York State. If you're out picnicking, keep your eyes open for cheeky gray squirrels. If you head inland to go hiking or camping, listen at night and you just might hear the howls of coyotes and wolves.
