Kingston is my City

As mentioned in my previous post I was going to have all of my answers for the National Geographic contest, so here they are.

Looking foward to seeing everyone elses!

My City Questionnaire

Kingston is My City

The first place I take a visitor from out of town is Fort Henry National Historic Site!

When I crave cupcakes I always go to Card’s Bakery

To escape stress I head to the Rosemount Inn & Spa for a massage

If I want to have fun I go to the waterslide at the Ambassador Conference Resort

For complete quiet, I can hide away at the Kingston Frontenac Public Library

If you come to my city, get your picture taken with the Town Crier

If you have to order one thing off the menu from Aqua Terra Restaubistro it has to be The Aqua Terra (beef tenderloin and tiger shrimp!)

Tribal Voices is my one-stop shop for great jewellery and accessories

Locals know to skip dinner and check out dessert first at White Mountain Ice Cream instead

When I'm feeling cash-strapped I go to S&R Department Store

For a huge splurge I go to Chez Piggy for dinner

Photo ops in my city include Springer Market Square on market day and the best vantage points are along King St

If my city were a celebrity it'd be Bryan Adams (down to earth, truly Canadian and always amazing to see live)

The most random thing about my city is ‘Skeleton’ (McBurney) Park, it was a cemetery in the 1800’s and is now a city park… human remains still get uncovered today

My city has the most uniformed men

My city has the most intelligent women.

In my city, an active day outdoors involves sailing on Lake Ontario

My city's best museum is The Penitentiary Museum

My favorite jogging/walking route is through Lake Ontario Park

For a night of dancing, go to Joy Supper Club. Or, for live music, check out The Merchant on Friday’s

Bubba’s is the spot for late-night eats

To find out what's going on at night and on the weekends, read

You can tell a lot about my city from walking down Princess St. in the heart of downtown

You can tell if someone is from my city if they know where Sir. John A. Macdonald is buried

In the spring you should check out Maple Madness at Little Cataraqui Creek Conservation Area

In the summer you should go sailing – Kingston is world renowned for it or watch free movies in Springer Market Square …

In the fall you should take a 1000 islands boat cruise, you’ll have the best view of the best foliage anywhere

In the winter you should stay warm with a specialty coffee from Sips coffee & dessert bar

A hidden gem in my city is Orchard St. Park

For a great breakfast joint try Morrison’s

Don't miss the Busker’s Rendezvous’ festival in July

Just outside my city, you can visit the Cataraqui Conservation Area for some great hiking

The best way to see my city is on the Confederation Tour Trolley

If my city were a pet it would be a turtle

If I didn't live in a city, I'd live on a horse farm

The best book about my city is A Kingston Album: Glimpses of the Way we Were

When I think about my city, the song that comes to mind is ‘I will always return’ by Bryan Adams

If you have kids, you won't want to miss the Teddy Bear Picnic

The Aberdeen St. party for Queen’s Homecoming could only happen in my city.
