14 Things You Didn't Know You Could Do In Kingston

June 6, 2017

1. JUMP OFF THE PIER INTO LAKE ONTARIO

 

Take advantage of Lake Ontario before the Kingston cold quickly approaches. Or, muster up the confidence and try a polar bear dip in November… We aren’t judging!)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

2. TAKE A HIKE AT ROCK DUNDER

 

The view speaks for itself.

 

 

           

3. TAKE A BREAK AND STUDY BY THE LAKE AT THE ISABEL BADER CENTRE

 

This beautiful building (and the even more spectacular view) makes studying slightly more bearable.

 

4. GO SEE THE LUMINAS BOREALIS

 

This interactive winter night walk through Kingston’s historic Fort Henry will wow you! The view of Kingston from Fort Henry also isn’t awful…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

5. TAKE A FERRY TO WOLFE ISLAND

 

Roughly a one hour retreat from Kingston, Wolfe Island is a great way to get outdoors and see some new things. Okay… So it’s not actually something that you can do Kingston, but we thought we’d include it anyway.

 

6. PLAY SOME VINTAGE VIDEO GAMES AT BARCADIA

Look no further than the name itself. Bar meets arcade. Barcadia. If you’re looking to play some video games and get some beers, this is the place for you.

 

 

7. BUNDLE UP AND TAKE A WALK ALONG THE KINGSTON WATERFRONT

 

We can promise that it will be stunning, no matter the season.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

8. SCALE A WALL AT THE BOILER ROOM

 

This climbing gym boasts Canada’s highest indoor climb. How ‘bout that?

 

 

9. GO SEE A MOVIE AT THE SCREENING ROOM

 

Take a trip down memory lane at this old-style movie theatre with a flare.

 

10. ENJOY SOME LIVE MUSIC AT THE BROOKLYN

 

Because, c’mon… Who doesn’t love live music? Also, many concerts at the Brooklyn are put on by an organization of students called Generocksity. This group donates all of the proceeds from the concerts to different charities! These concerts are a great way to be a great person while listening to some great music.

 

 

11. GRAB A COFFEE DOWNTOWN KINGSTON

 

NORTHSIDE and Crave are two of our fav cafes downtown. These local shops are a great place to cozy up with a cup of coffee and a book.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

12. SKATE DOWNTOWN AT SPRINGER MARKET SQUARE...

 

 

13. OR, JUST SKATE ON THE LAKE!

 

Make the most of the winter and get outdoors!

 

 

14. VISIT THE LOCAL KINGSTON FARMERS MARKET

 

This is the place to go if you are looking to buy local, fresh produce and immerse yourself in the community.
