I’ve visited Kingston! The city is not so very big (compering Montreal, Toronto, Vancouver,,, etc) But this city is very historical interesting city.
This city was the capital city long time ago just for few years. (1841-1844)
Yes, for a very short term, and the capital city was turned to be Ottawa, not so far from Kingston tho. The only big one reason why was, Kingston was too near to border with America, The USA.
At the moment, British that governance Canada was afraid attacks from America to their capital city. At the time, British had “Napoleon War”, and America was trying to get the land of Canada while British had another war, BUT it was fail. (They had war for 1812 -1814)
Now Kingston is just a peaceful relaxing city.

Pitch in Kingston
This is Murney Tower National Historic Site.
This building for defend Kingston by enemies from ocean. It has canyons inside.
If you pay $5, you can get inside.
There is a big gap between the land and the building.
The enemies will just fall down the gap, and can be get gun shot..
