Directions to Kingston:
Kingston is conveniently located on the north shore of Lake Ontario just off highway 401, approximately half way between Montreal and Toronto, and 30 minutes from the Thousands Islands International Bridge on Route 81 in New York state.
To get to Kingston’s downtown core by car, we suggest taking the Sir John Alexander MacDonald Blvd. Exit off of the 401, heading south to King St. and make a left. King St. will then follow the banks of Lake Ontario taking you directly to the downtown core.
Alternatively you could take the Highway 15 exit off the 401, and head south to Highway 2. Turn right on Highway 2 – you will pass Fort Henry on your left and the Royal Military College on your right before crossing the LaSalle Causeway and heading into the downtown. The K-ROCK Centre will be directly in front of you as you come off the Causeway.
