Have you ever come into our Visitor Information Centre and asked yourself how our Travel Counsellors have such an extensive knowledge of the Tourist Destinations throughout the province? There is a simple answer: field research. Kat recently went on an excursion to the lovely city of Kingston in order to scope out what the so-called “limestone city” has to offer. The name did not disappoint, as there certainly was a lot of limestone.
Kat was welcomed the first night with perhaps the largest potluck she has ever attended. As her family equates love with food, she instantly felt at home. The next day, Kat became even more familiarized with the city after doing a walking tour of Queen’s University and an excellent trolley tour of historical sites. She would definitely recommend taking the Wolfe Island Ferry if you have a chance. It is a very nice ferry (and the song will be stuck in your head for weeks).
For those of you who worry that the awesomeness of Kingston may have caused her to change her alliances, fear not. She is one hundred percent a Burlingtonian and in fact took the opportunity to promote a few of Burlington’s sites and events while she was there. Kat can confidently say that Queen’s University students are now aware of the Royal Botanical Gardens, the Sound of Music Festival and Ribfest, just to name a few things. If you are looking to travel up to Kingston though (or anywhere else for that matter), be sure to stop by our Visitor Information Centre in downtown Burlington, we’ll be happy to help you out!
