As tourism season approaches, these are just a few of the interesting places to enjoy in Kingston for both visitors and residents alike:

RELEASE — Kingston has become a much-visited place by tourists thanks to there being so much to do here in one of Canada’s most iconic and idyllic locations.

Visit Lake Ontario Park

Lake Ontario Park (pictured above) is a place of natural beauty, regularly visited by tourists as well as those living in the area. The urban waterfront park features a beach volleyball court, playgrounds, a splash pad and a whole lot more. It underwent renovations several years ago, upgrading the park to contemporary standards with modern amenities that include level 2 EV charging stations – making it a place for everyone who wishes to enjoy the natural beauty and fresh air by the lake.

Play Games At A Casino

Kingston, like the rest of Canada, is close to land-based casino venues that offer plenty of adult fun. Shorelines Casino Thousand Islands just outside nearby Gananoque and Shorelines Casino Belleville are excellent gaming venues where visitors to the area can enjoy their favourite slots and table games along with excellent dining opportunities. The fun gaming action doesn’t have to end upon leaving the casinos either. Punters in Canada can always log on and play thousands of slot games at Party Casino, one of the many gaming companies available on the Canadian market.

Visit St. Mary’s Cathedral

Cathedrals around the world are always a huge attraction for tourists. Beautifully designed, both inside and out, they’re a landmark in cities which everyone should visit if they have time. In Kingston, the Roman Catholic St. Mary’s Cathedral underwent extensive renovation a few years ago, restoring its beauty for both worshipers and visitors to enjoy. As well as visiting St Mary’s to look at the architecture and to learn about its history, masses and musical events are available to attend as well.

Pop Into The Kingston Penitentiary Museum

Kingston is home to the infamous Kingston Penitentiary, a former maximum-security prison on the shore of Lake Ontario. Visiting old jails has become a fascinating past time for many tourists, and the Kingston Pen Tours always receive top reviews. Ensuring that these tours are better than most, retired guards guide visitors through the prison, capitalizing on their unrivaled knowledge and experiences to communicate the importance of the landmark and its history. The museum is open to everyone from May until October, but can be visited outside of this period by appointment.

An excellent place to visit is one where there is something for everyone, regardless of their age, budget and interests. You’ll find this in abundance in Kingston, making it a location
which everyone should visit and spent time in, at least once or twice if they get the opportunity.
