The City 

Kingston, Ontario is widely known as a student town because of the three post-secondary institutions surrounding the city, but what attracts all of these students? Kingston is one of the highest ranked for most restaurants per capita and is ranked #1 in most golf courses per capita in Canada. With a very inclusive transit system it’s very easy to venture to the downtown core for an afternoon or explore the vibrant nightlife Kingston has to offer. Downtown Kingston is always buzzing with events no matter the season! Movies in the square during the warmer months and ice skating in the winter provides free activities for everyone ages 2-22. There are many activities outside of the downtown core as well that can satisfy any budget such as the drive-in and go-karting, miniature golf, and the driving range.
