We had a very nice stop over in Kingston on our journey from Toronto to Ottawa, a nice stroll down the waterfront, on a chilly day, certainly got the blood flowing, it’s a charming little town, full of character.

This is such a great place to hang out at. There’s always something going on, and tons of people roaming the area. It’s a beautiful place to just sit around and enjoy the views and the atmosphere. Will definitely be going back!
