Kingston Travel Guide



The City of Kingston is located halfway between Montreal and Toronto, Canada's two largest cities. Kingston is an eclectic mix of old and new "where history and innovation thrive".

Kingston is the largest and most enticing of the communities along the northern shore of Lake Ontario. It occupies a strategic position where the lake narrows into the St Lawrence River, its potential first recognized by the French who built a fortified fur-trading post here in 1673. It was not a success. The commander, the Comte de Frontenac, managed to argue with just about everybody and his deputy, Denonville, pursued a risky side-line in kidnapping, inviting local Iroquois to the fort and then forcibly shipping them to France as curiosities.

Renowned as the fresh-water capital of North America, Kingston is a major port to cruise the famous Thousand Islands. Every August the city is a hub of activity when hundreds of sailors converge for C.O.R.K., the annual Canadian Olympic Training Regatta.
