Kingston is a city in Canada located on Lake Ontario, at the beginning of the Cataraqui and Saint Lawrence Rivers. It is referred to as Limestone City owing to the fairly large number of grand 19th-century buildings built from limestone, one main one being the lakeside Kingston City Hall. The city of Kingston has historic landmarks, museums, and also a vibrant downtown that is filled with an abundant number of restaurants and pubs. Formerly Canadas first capital city, the city of Kingston is now a thriving community with some of the most interesting history in the province. Something about a magnificent, sweeping, view of Lake Ontario makes this classic Kingston landmark anything but basic.
