3. Explore the city's History!

Kingston has a rich history as the first capital of Canada when Sir John A. MacDonald was Prime Minister. We have many historic buildings here which are all part of a UNESCO heritage site, including Fort Henry and the Martello Towers.

You pay one price for either a 24, 48 or 72 hour KPASS which gives you access to so many of Kingston's fun things to do!

4. Get your Gelato fix!

But first, what is gelato anyways? So many people are in love with this cool(pun intended) treat, but do they really know what it is? Well, I'll tell you, or better yet Google will, but I will reiterate in my own words. Simply put, gelato is Italian ice cream, which just makes it sound fancy. It has the same base as ice cream a mixture of milk, cream and sugar, and is typically flavoured with fruit and nut purées. Here in Kingston, we have an amazing little gelato shop called Mio Gelato. The perfect addition to a walk by the water on warm summer evenings. Which brings me to #5...

5. Get Outside! 

Kingston has one of the most expansive waterfronts, stretching all along the south side of the city. With so much waterfront and lots of places to stop to watch the waves crashing, boats sailing or just passing the time, not to mention it's completely FREE! There is so much beauty in getting back to basics and just enjoying time outside without a screen, people watching and taking in the sounds and sights around you. So, get outside! 

Well, this brings us to the end of the "Things to do Tonight" blog post! I hope we opened your eyes to some new things you maybe didn't know existed in this city of ours, or we at least gave you some insight into the things you'd been thinking about doing. If you do stop into any of the above mentioned places, make sure you let them know how you heard about them! We love connecting people in our city! 

Happy Summer and Happy exploring! Come see us at Improbable Escapes!
