“A Canadian treasure”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 15, 2013

Kingston harbour feels like a fabled place. There's nothing like standing onshore, watching the lake horizon as a tall ship comes into view. Or spending an evening by the water while fireworks sparkle and shoot overhead. Good times.

“Busy fun”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 15, 2013

Always lots of action: small craft, cruise boats, sailboats, nice shady parks with reasonable parking ($1.00 per hour in one at the west end) and easy access to the water; all kinds of boat rentals; the (free) ferry to Wolfe Island. And the backdrop of the gorgeous heritage stone houses and Kingston's amazing history.

We attended the Buskers Rendez-Vous at the Kingston waterfront this weekend. Lots of great acts from all over the world, fantastic restaurants and outdoor cafes, great little shops to wonder through! Kingston's downtown and waterfront is the place to be this summer!!

“Nothing Special”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 7, 2013

Coming from Halifax the waterfront here is nothing special. If the weather is good its a nice place for a walk/run but there are almost no restaurants or patios on the water.
