Kingston is where the St. Lawrence River, Rideau Canal, and Lake Ontario meet.
Cruising around Kingston by boat would be fun to get around, but your car is more practical to take advantage of Kingston’s lifestyle.
Whether you’re eating downtown on Princess Street or shopping at an outlet centre on Gardiner’s Road, your car, or truck or SUV, gets you there to get it done. Our insurance experts at Western Financial group will make sure you get the best car insurance at the best value for you.
If you want to take advantage of nature, your car can get you to the Marshlands Conservation Area, located in Kingston’s west end. Your wheels will also get you to Breakwater Park where the landmark sculpture, Time, is located on the Lake Ontario shoreline. You can go down to the waterfront and take a 1000 Islands cruise.
Your car is also practical in Kingston because it’s halfway between Toronto and Montreal and Ottawa is a little more than two hours away if you want to take a short trip.
In Kingston, you have easy access to Highway 401 and it’s the main access route into the city. If you want to head to the upstate New York, you can take the 1000 Islands Bridge at Ivy Lea, about 50 kilometres east of Kingston.
Sightseeing is made easier on four wheels to visit the Royal Military College of Canada, which is next to Fort Henry, Kingston’s most-visited attraction. You can get to the home of Canada’s first prime minister, Sir John A. MacDonald’s, at 35 Centre St. between Union and King streets.
You can also drive to visit the Kingston Penitentiary, Canada’s oldest penitentiary now open to tourists. It was established in 1835 and officially closed on September 30, 2013.
Queen’s University is worth the short drive, too. It’s at 99 University Ave. If your or one of your children is interested in attending, there are on-campus tours.
