Kingston

4.4
Limestone City
Called the "Limestone City" because it contains many white-stone buildings, Kingston served as the first capital of Canada. Though it lost its status as the country's top administrative center long ago, Kingston is now one of Canada's richest destinations in terms of history and culture. Visitors tour Kingston to see its many old churches, civic buildings, and 19th-century fortifications, built in the 1840s to defend the area from potential attacks from the United States. The city also boasts a lively nightlife scene and serves as a relaxing weekend getaway for residents of Ottawa, Toronto, and Montreal. Whether you only want to go to Kingston, or have a whole adventure planned, Inspirock has you covered with our user-friendly Canada itinerary planner.
