The legendary city of Kingston, Ontario is one of the province’s most beloved cities for a plethora of reasons. The city is full of parks and green spaces for picnics and gatherings, with a number of off-leash dog parks also available for our four-legged friends. There’s no shortage of spots for outdoor recreational activities, and the area boasts some of the province’s best hiking trails. The downtown area, and elsewhere in the city, has a truly outstanding selection of restaurants and eateries (check out the Copper Penny for the best fries in the country – seriously) And as the home of the legendary Canadian band The Tragically Hip, it goes without saying that the local music and arts scene is second-to-none.
