With many attractions reopening as Ontario moves into Step 3 of the Roadmap to Reopening on Friday, Visit Kingston has released a list of the region’s most “sought-after attractions” to entice families, couples and solo travellers with diverse interests to visit.

The list, issued as a news release from Tourism Kingston, included relaxing outdoor activities such as a cruise with the Kingston 1000 Islands Cruises or a day kayaking or canoeing on Lake Ontario at Ahoy Rentals. For more a more adult-geared trip, Tourism Kingston recommends a guided wine tour departing from Kingston with County Sips.

As Ontario enters Step 3 of its reopening plan, museums and historical attractions are slated to once again open their doors to visitors. An educational trip to the PumpHouse Steam Museum, a visit to Fort Henry National Historic Site, or a guided tour of the Kingston Penitentiary are recommended for families entertaining young children, Visit Kingston suggested.

For those who are more adventurous, there are haunted tours throughout Kingston which explore the city’s long and storied history. The Ghost and Mystery Trolley Tour and the Haunted Walk of Kingston are entertaining ways to see the beauty of the city while learning about its history.

While Tourism Kingston is encouraging visits to the region, they are warning visitors to be mindful of the COVID-19 restrictions and to book plans in advance to avoid disappointment.
