Destination of the Week100_2437

The Port of Kingston! Did you know it is just 9 miles from the locks? We feel this is a great
winter time weekend destination. Not a far cruise, but a definite getaway. Kingston Cove Yacht Club, restaurants, BBQ gazebo on the dock, fuel, pump out, free showers!

Have a look at our Destination page for more about the Port of Kingston Marina!
