Kingston Travel Guide: 18 reviews and 36 photos

Kingston is a historic city located on the west bank of the Hudson River not far from Woodstock and the Catskill Mountains. Part of the city is a bit dumpy. Derelict buildings and unsavory characters hanging about but the Rondout area, near the river has been gentrified and is very pleasant. The downtown area (Stockade district) is quaint as well and pleasant to stroll. Unique covered sidewalks are a great sight to see. Many historic buildings to take a gander at. Kingston has at least 2 dozen pre-revolutionary war stone houses that are still occupied today. Not much for visitors from overseas but considering history in the USA is demolished to build a fast food restaurant or chain store, this is a pretty amazing feat for a city. The photo was taken as the boat was exiting Ronout Creek and entering the Hudson River. Checkout the travelogue for more scenic Kingston pics.
