Bring the family to see Santa in the square, embrace the beauty of winter at Lumina Borealis, wow your taste buds at the best local restaurants from Kingston Food Tours, and much more. You’ll think, “Darn, I wish we grabbed a hotel room or B&B!” so why not easily transform your day trip into a weekend getaway in Canada’s first capital city when you book a hotel or B&B.

Bring your dancing shoes for a night out on the town at one of Kingston’s many pubs and late night venues, a camera for the classic architecture, and an appetite for the Farmer’s Market and locavore dining. Forget trying to do it all in a day.

Crush the rush! Book a room in Kingston and you more than double your fun.
