Willie-O BS: Travel Hints for Canada? (84* d) RE: BS: Travel Hints for Canada? 10 Jun 09


One of the coolest ways to spend a few hours in Kingston is to catch the Wolfe Island ferry (right from the downtown waterfront), 15 minutes to the largest of the Thousand Islands, and it's FREE! (Cause it's part of the provincial highway system, what we still have of it.) Explore the island then head back. Or you can continue into New York State on another ferry at Cape Vincent on the other side of the island.

Here's a video of the ferry I made from a hotel window when we were hanging around in Kingston having our 25th anniversary getaway a few months ago:

As you can see, there's now a big-ass windfarm covering one end of the island--an interesting tour there, and the rest of the island is like a miniature PEI. Did I mention the ferry is FREE?

Aside from that, visit our town, Perth, about an hour north of Kingston--often named as the prettiest town in Ontario for it's heritage stone buildings and gorgeous downtown riverfront park. And we have a great free music festival in the park on July 17-19 (see stewartparkfestival.ca). If you're coming by give me a shout and I will show you the sights (possibly including the ones outside of O'Reilly's Pub).
