Weekend Getaway to Kingston

September 16, 2020 | CAA Travel Team


En route to our Nation’s capital is Canada’s first capital city – Kingston. Nicknamed the Limestone City, Kingston is famous for its local heritage and limestone buildings. It’s brimming with attractions and museums, making it the ideal weekend getaway for couples and families.

While planning your trip, one of the first things to nail down is a way there. If you’re interested in taking a train, your CAA Travel Consultant can assist you in booking your pass with VIA Rail. This is a great option as Members save up to 20%. Then solidify your stay with either the Four Points by Sheraton or Delta Hotels by Marriott Kingston Waterfront where CAA Members save 5% or more.

Alternatively, you could also drive your RV and stay in a local campground. This includes 1000 Islands Kingston KOA and Rideau Acres Campground. Should you choose this option, remember to upgrade your Membership to include coverage on your motorhomes or campers for an additional $88/year.1
