Kingston, Ontario: Reasons Why You Don't Want To Miss A Trip Here
Just take a few steps into downtown Kingston, Ontario, and you'll instantly know you are in a city filled with history. Originally a French trading post dating back to the late 1600s, Kingston later served as modern-day Canada's first capital city in 1841, although this only lasted three years. Today, the city's history remains palatable: City Hall sits across from a waterfront park packed with tourists looking across the water towards the Royal Military College of Canada and Fort Henry. But it is also a place with a youthful vibe about it. In this video, we show you spots you don't want to miss, like meeting the town crier, touring the inside of City Hall, exploring both the architecture and Fort Henry, and tasting local flavors. And when it comes to a place to stay, we are sure you will love the Frontenac Club Inn as much as we did.
My passion for travel was unlocked when I spent some years living across Europe and South America. I've never been one to shy away from a new adventure, be it swimming with pigs in the Bahamas, bird watching in the Galapagos or Heli-Hiking in British Columbia. And while I used to mostly travel solo, I now like to hit the road with my 4-year-old son, 1-year-old-daughter and husband in tow. The best part of travel to me now is getting to see the world through their eyes. Whether they are petting goats during an Oregon farm stay or making their very own pizza in Idaho, their enthusiasm and joy never fails to remind me of why I love travel.
