    Summer Afternoons on a downtown patio

    by Highbrae Written Jan 1, 2008

    Favorite thing: If you are visiting Kingston between June and September you will notice that every restaurant along Ontario Street will have an outside patio, and if the sun is shining the patios will be full. What you may not realize is that although Kingston will be full of tourists at this time of year the patios will be full of locals. We do love our patios and any excuse of a downtown meeting will do if it means a few hours on a patio with a few of the lake. I could name a few however there are so many, so pick one that suits your taste and enjoy.

    Fondest memory: The Patio of the Tir nan Og Pub with Irish Drafts and finger foods on Ontario Street in the shadow of historic City Hall.

    The Waterfront Walkway

    by Highbrae Written Jan 1, 2008

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Kingston is built on the water and we seem to have an abundence of it everywhere, however there have been more that a few people upset by the amount of development along our waterfront. Here is a tip that few visitors know. There is actually a walkway that will allow you to walk all along the Kingston Waterfront between the buildings and the water. You will find it at almost any point where a city street goes to the water, then pick a direction and enjoy the views of Wolfe Island and Lake Ontario from the city side.

    Favorite thing: General tip about Kingston: it is a relatively large city but it has more of a small town feel. It can be a pleasant stop on the way between Montreal and Toronto. It can also be a good place to stay at one of the nice bed and breakfast inns there, and thereby take advantage of the relaxed atmosphere.

    Keep your eyes open.

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Keep your eyes open for attractions. I realized that when we came out of the marine museum and we saw the big ice breaker ship, there was another museum almost besides it, just a block down.

    Just by walking for an hour, you can discover a lot of interesting things and take tons of pictures. Just like I did. This is the sign on the street explaining what's in the compound.

    Fondest memory: I have to say my favorite attraction was the Alexander Henry. Downtown. Canadian Coast Guard Ship-moored at the Marine Museum of the Great Lakes

    You have to learn French,...

    by Kentbein Updated Mar 4, 2003

    1 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: 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!!!!

    Go to the Prince George...

    by Deus_ultima Written Aug 26, 2002

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Go to the Prince George hotel!

    This beautifull place was where the wifes of soldiers would come to sleep when they were in town to visit their husbands posted at Kingston during World War 1. It then became a tourist attraction for a while, but closed.

    After a few years, it is now re-open with a pub, a restaurant..and a hotel!
    :)

    by vtvroom Written Aug 25, 2002

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: If you come to Kingston in the summer, you should be sure to visit Fort Henry. You'll want to find out when they are doing their annual show with a visiting US marine unit. Fort Henry is a stone fort left over from the 1800's -- take the tour.

    Fondest memory: One of the best things about Kingston is the large number of outdoor patios. During the summer there is nothing better than enjoying lunch or perhaps a few beer while all the busy people are walking by.
