Kingston is a city in Ontario, Canada. It is located on the eastern end of Lake Ontario, at the beginning of the St. Lawrence River and at the mouth of the Cataraqui River (south end of the Rideau Canal). The city is midway between Toronto, Ontario, and Montreal, Quebec. Kingston is also located nearby the Thousand Islands tourist region to the east and the Prince Edward County tourist region to the west. Kingston is nicknamed the "Limestone City" because of the many heritage buildings constructed using local limestone. As one of our favourite cities in Ontario, Kingston is full of great things do to and fun facts. Stop by the Visitor Information Centre Located in the old train station down by the waterfront, The Visitor Information Centre is a great first stop if you are new to exploring Kingston. The Information Centre is located in Confederation Park which is right downtown across from Kingston City Hall. This is also where you can have a look at the Spirit of Sir John A. – an old steam engine that was restored and put on display at the waterfront. Given the number of things to see and tours you can do in the summertime, it makes sense to package them together and buy something called a K-Pass. Address: 209 Ontario Street, Kingston
