Travel Tips for Kingston

You have to learn French,...

by Kentbein

You have to learn French around here!! Which leads me to a question posed to my Canadian friends such as LAVEP and Lauriejeanne. Does the dual language present a problem in an area such as the military? Suppose you're in the middle of a critical situation and need to communicate orders, direction or obtain information. Wouldn't communication present a problem when answers are time sensitive? It would seem so to me, especially if it's my rear end hanging out there about to get shot off!

LAVEP, by the way, has a great site, including excellent info on Montreal and a cool trip he took to Scotland in February 2001. See if he's still wearing a dress in his photo!! It does wonders for his eyes!!

A thousand pardons, LAVEP!!!!

Well, we think it wont' be...

by Pete_Thera

Well, we think it wont' be wrong to say that the Thousand Islands and Gananouque are Off the Beaten Path destinations. Even if people know the Thousand Islands they tend to go to board the boats at Alexandria,New York, for the Thousand Islands. We've heard the port there is more lively and have lots of activities but we appreciate the calmness and serenity of the Canadian side.

Fort Henry

by sunnywong

The Citadel of Upper Canada which located atop Point Henry, Kingston's highest point at the convergence of the St. Lawrence River, Fort Henry was built from 1832 to 1837 in replacement of a fortification. Today, this historic site offers a museum which depicts military life of the 19th century.

The Commandant’s Parade, held daily at 3, is a 30-minute presentation of drill and artillery.

For further informations about Fort Henry, check out my travelogue of this page.

Boldt Castle

by hayward68

Built as a display of his love by George C. Boldt for his wife Louise, the castle was started in 1900 on Heart Island. However, construction ground to a halt in 1904 at the untimely death of Louise. A heartbroken George never returned to the island. For 73 years the castle was left to withstand the elements until 1977 when the 1000 Islands Bridge Authority bought the island. They finished the castle and have maintained it as a tourist attraction ever since.
It's American property but is visited by many of the cruises. However, if you're visiting Canada and don't have a visa to visit the US, you probably won't be allowed onto the island.

Kingston and the 1000 Islands

by janika

"The Irish city besides the 1850 islands."

That's right. Thousand Islands have over 1800 smaller and bigger islands, not including the artificial islands. The boat ride we went on was leaving from Gananoque. See my Gananaoque page for town pictures and info.

Please do NOT forget to check my travelogues where I posted many images from the 1000 Islands. It is very important that you check the travelouges for the Island photos. This page might seem quiet large for some of you, but it is not really that big. Considering most of it are images and less text. As we say here: " A picture speaks for a thousand words"

Kingston is a medium size city right on the St Lawrence river shore. Boating and sailing is a tradition in Kingston. You see many marinas and ports with docks and boats. Old and new. Kingston is also home for Canada's biggest prison and largest military academy. Kingston is the former capital city of Canada. The population is mostly Irish origin and the first language is English.

I have included my 1000 Island pages here, since most folks are looking for the Islands info under Kingston. Enjoy!
