Voice of Travelers to Kingston (Canada)

A weekend in Kingston city

I visited Kingston for a weekend getaway. I traveled from Toronto to Kingston via Air Canada. The ticket was reasonably priced for an economy class seat. The service provided by both the ground and crew staff was excellent. My stay in Kingston was full of unique experiences that were very educational. Kingston has fantastic restaurants and many places to visit. Some of the places that I visited were Canada’s Penitentiary Museum, Kingston Waterfront, and Kingston City Hall. My fondest moment was a tour at the Bellevue National Historic site. The tour lasted more than an hour with startling stories of the first Canadian prime minister and his wife.

Day trip to Kingston

My friend invited me to Kingston, her hometown city for the Sweet Home Music Festival. I traveled by Air Canada. Their services were brilliant. The check-in staff were pleasant and the cabin crew was so friendly. Their seats were so comfortable, and we were served snacks and drinks onboard. At Kingston, I loved everything about the city. Most of the things are reasonably priced and they had very delicious Canadian dishes. We first visited Canada's Penitentiary Museum where I got myself a souvenir- a book titled "One day...Gone." It is a book honoring Canada's federal penitentiaries. We later proceeded to the festival at the Grass Creek Park for exhilarating music. I liked Kingston; I will visit this city again.
