    Hiya Liv,

    Kingston has a great downtown area with a lot of neat little shops. There's plenty of shopping in a couple of malls, Primarilly the Caraqui Towne Centre, and just accross the street from that there's the country's largest Canadian Tire! (woohoo!) There are also a couple of historical sites in town such as Old Fort Henry, and sone great parks as well. A great place to check out things to do and see is www.whatsonkingston.com
    and
    www.kedco.ca

    Slohand is also from Kingston and may have some great ideas for you as well!

    Hope this helps

    Troy

    Hey Liv, I haven't been in Kingston all that long, got here by route of Toronto and Montreal so this town is smaller than I'm accustom to. The downtown core is very neat though. Plenty of very good places to eat and depending when you come the Grand Theatre does have it's surpize performances. The pubs are a must ... the Tir Nan Og, The Brewing Company (Micro), the Pilot House, the Toucan, etc. and all within walking distance. This is a University town (Queen's) so there's tons to do around campus life. Oh and most locals here will be quick to tell you that this is the birthplace and home of the late Sir John A. MacDonald and that if the Queen hadn't stuck her nose in things, Kingston would have been the Capital of Canada

    What could possibly be bringing you to Kingston? Let me know when your coming and I'll get a few of us reefer together...
