Classic Living In Kingston Homes
Kingston is ideally located in eastern Ontario, between Toronto and Montreal; known throughout the country as the "Limestone City" because of its many heritage buildings constructed using local limestone. Kingston was created over a long, rich history in the fur trade between the Native Peoples and European settlers in the 17th century, and was referred to as "King's Town" in the 18th century by Loyalists, thence becoming the Kingston known today. 21 of the National Historic Sites of Canada are located in Kingston, infusing the city with airs of history and tradition. Kingston increasingly draws people from all over the country and beyond, due to its vibrant cultural scene as well as its abundance of job opportunities: it is recognised as one of the best places to live and work in Canada for young professionals.
The Kingston WritersFest, Limestone City Blues Festival, Kingston Canadian Film Festival, and the Kingston Jazz Festival are just some of the cultural festivals that Kingston offers throughout the year. The city is home to many artists and musicians, and the downtown area is abound with music and theatre venues. There is a wide array of upscale and casual dining options, from sleek bars to quaint cafes and ethnic food to local fare at the public markets. Boutique and major retail shopping, art galleries, a number of museums, and medical and other professional services are available throughout the city. Kingston is also home to Queen's University, one of Canada's oldest and internationally-reputed universities, along with the Royal Military College of Canada. There is an exceptional amount of highly-ranked private and public elementary and high schools in the neighbourhoods, as well as in the downtown area.
Soccer, sailing, freshwater wreck diving — that is, diving from old shipwrecks, golf, curling, rugby, and football are just some of the outdoor activities offered in the city. Kingston is also considered the birthplace of ice hockey: catch the annual game between Queen's U and the RMC on a frozen lake and in 19th century period sportswear for a peek into the city's cultural history.
