Kingston and surroundings in the tourism region: South Eastern Ontario

Kingston is beautifully located on the east side of Lake Ontario where the Rideau Canal meets the lake and then mighty St. Lawrence River begins.
Kingston is also known as the "Lime Stone City".
One of the best known buildings is the City Hall. It was constructed when Kingston was the capital of "Upper Canada". However, when it was completed in the year 1844 Kingston lost this title.
Today the city hall is the landmark of Kingston.
This town is certainly a place where you can spend days only to explore few of the attractions.

In a prime location right on Lake Ontario - the old maximum security prison

Visit the "Marine Museum at the Great Lakes" in Kingston. Hopefully, you will still find the icebreaker "Alexander Henry" there. It was used by the Canadian Coast Guard between 1958 and 1984..

Whenever you are in Kingston reserve some time to visit Fort Henry.
It was built during the war for independence between the Americans and England. After this war had been won by the Americans - but also before - many so called "Loyalists" became refugees in today's Canada. They were loyal to England and experienced a tough time at home.
We hope that you come in the "right" time when young people in historical costumes offer their services as guides and demonstrations takes place.
The Fort is only open between end of May and the beginning of September. It happened to us in many places that we found locked doors when we arrived with guests from Germany.
Please watch the videos below - many thanks to the people who published them.

Please get actual information about ongoing events when you visit Kingston. Many things are offered and you can be active for days. We cannot do this in our little travel guide - so far we did not get any support!
Especially diving, boat cruises, sport events but also performances can keep you busy.
Don't forget to get information about the Rideau Canal - North America's oldest waterway system. It connects Kingston with Ottawa. The friends of Rideau have allowed us to use some of their pictures in travel guide.
This attraction is still on the top of our "To do" list.

Wolfe Island, Kanada, Ontario, Tourismus, Reiseführer
Wind turbine on Wolfe Island - many thanks to "Santryl" and Wikipedia

So far we have always missed to visit the Thousand Islands in St. Lawrence River. We have not even made a visit to "Wolfe Island".
There is a beautiful sandy beach and life is less hectic than in nearby Kingston. Many "birdwatchers", people who love to watch and photograph birds visit this island.
Of course, some people are not very enthusiastic about the newly built wind turbines; because not only birds but also bats are killed there.
Even environmentally friendly technologies do not just have only good sides.
The island can only be reached by ferry.
