‘The Limestone City’ is an obvious nickname for Canada’s most Victorian city; Kingston. Full of handsome heritage mansions and gorgeous lake views, Kingston is a city that promises to be picture perfect. Its brief stint as Canada’s capital may have got it noticed but it deserves attention for a lot more than that.
Interesting museums, waterfront promenades and a decidedly English vibe add lots of charm and character to the city. Fans of history will rejoice as the city treats visitors with historical wonders like Fort Henry and St. George’s Cathedral. And trust the incredible vistas of Lake Ontario to take your breath away.
