Summer 2014 Kingston

Home » Blog » Summer 2014 Kingston


Here we go – first long weekend of 2014 and not a moment too soon!  It seems like years since we’ve worn our sandals and not bundled up in a coat or a hoodie.  This winter was brutal – we’re not used to the harsh winters anymore.  Well it’s over and before it’s too far out of my memory I pledge to get out and enjoy any place besides inside the house near the heater.

So, rain or not, I’m going be kicking off my weekend with a ride on my motorcyle and let the wind blow in my face. It’s time to break free and fly!  Speaking about flying, I’m also hoping to fly this weekend.  This past fall I decided to persue a new adventure – flying ultralight planes.  Extreme I know but it’s just so amazing.

Since I’m sure that many of my followers don’t have the same need for speed, I suspect Ktown has many events planned for the long weekend and the summer.  There is so much to do in Kingston – including some famous museums such as Penitentiary Museum, The Pump House, The MacLachlan Woodworking Museum just to name a few.  There are art centres such as Agnes Etherington Art Centre, Modern Fuel Artist-Run Centre, Union Gallery at Queen’s University and historic sites – Fort Henry and the Royal Military College and many more.

Downtown Kingston is an amazing city with historical ties, modern flare.  It’s big enough to have anything you need and small enough that you don’t get lost in the crowd.  The Farmers Market on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday brings local food and crafts city’s centre.  The same spot at Market Square offers a local antique market on Sunday.

The thousand islands that surround Kingston should be one of the wonders of the world.  There’s nothing like getting out on a boat and touring the islands or if you don’t have a boat there are several tour operators that will take you through the islands – some offer fine dining and others are small enough that the wind can blow in your face and you can smell the water and become part of the whole experience.

So many things to do and the long summer days that lay ahead gives us plenty of opportunities to soak up all that Kingston has to offer.  I have to admit that I have not participated in many of these treasures for years.  This summer I vow to revisit some of these sites and reconnect with our great city.  A couple of years ago I took a trip on the Kingston Tour Trolley.  It’s a trolley bus that tours many of the city tourist spots.  I was amazed at the history I learned on the one hour tour.  The Trolley now offers 6 hop-on/hop-off spots so you can get an up close and personal look at some of the historic sites in Kingston.  I’m planning on spending an afternoon ‘hopping on and off”.

Yup this is will be my staycation summer.  So many people travel hundreds or thousands of miles to see what I have right in my back yard – I’m gonna take the time to get out in our own ‘backyard’.

Enjoy the long weekend and the start of a beautiful summer – I know I’m going to.
