Giving the Gift of Kingston Experiences

By Visit Kingston

This holiday, give that lucky someone the gift of an unforgettable experience in our beautiful city. Sure it’s an ideal destination year-round, but the winter festivities add a unique sparkle to Kingston that can’t be missed.

The gift of giving (and receiving)

This holiday season, the fine folks at AquaTerra restaurant are adding something special when you load up on gift certificates. Get a gift when you give a gift (certificate) — like $220 when you spend $200; $340 when you spend $300, and; $450 when you spend $400. Treat your friends and loved ones to AquaTerra’s ever-evolving menu full of locally sourced and seasonally inspired ingredients, perfect at any time of day and occasions big and small. 

Meet our Makers

Experience an evening of fine food, famous Prince Edward County wines, and good conversation. Join AquaTerra’s Executive Chef and a guest winemaker at the waterfront restaurant, listen to stories from the vineyard and learn about the winemaking process. Tickets include a four-course dinner with wine pairings. Seating is limited so get your tickets online today.

Watch them play

Are there hockey fans in your life? Send them to the rink in style. The Kingston Frontenacs Coca-Cola Holiday Pack includes 6 silver ticket vouchers for any regular-season game between December 28, 2019 to March 22, 2020; one signed Kingston Frontenacs puck; one Coca-Cola vintage bottle six-pack; one official Kingston Frontenacs ballcap. Holiday Packs can be bought at the Fronts Shop at Leon’s Centre until December 23 at noon.

Let us entertain you

Forget trying to select the perfect book, movie, or album for the culture vulture on your list — you’re probably going to pick the wrong one anyway. Instead, let them choose their own play or performance with a gift certificate to the Grand Theatre or the Isabel. Bonus: these gift certificates never expire!

Good wine for a good cause

The Winemaker’s Benefit Dinner, hosted by AquaTerra, invites guests to enjoy a memorable evening of great food and wine in support of the University Hospital Kingston Foundation. The speakers of the evening are cardiologist Dr. Adrian Baranchuk, who has written about the relationship between wine and cardiovascular health, and Dan Sullivan of Prince Edward County’s Rosehall Run winery. Tickets are available online.

Solve some problems

Your pals, family members, or co-workers will love the chance to prove their problem-solving skills when you gift them a booking at Improbable Escapes or Sherlock’s Escapes! Three of Kingston’s most thrilling attractions, these escape rooms offer a variety of themed rooms to choose from for tons of brain-teasing fun.

Eat and be merry

For the culinary connoisseur, give them the best of both worlds: the Kingston experience and great food. Kingston Food Tours offers a guided walk through the downtown streets, discovering the city’s history and savouring the very best of Kingston cuisine. For fans of the craft brewery scene, join a microbrewery crawl with the Beer and Bites tour.
