Are you flying into the Kingston, Ontario area? Then odds are you’re landing at Norman Rogers (YGK). For ease of access and peace of mind, consider booking a hotel near the airfield.
The airfield is named after Norman McLeod Rogers, Kingston’s former member of Parliament.
Rogers, a onetime professor at Queen’s University in Kingston, also has a street in the city named after him. The airfield is about 10 km from the downtown area and that famous street, so no matter where you end up staying, odds are you’ll have a short drive to your accommodations. Once you’re settled in, hoof it to Princess Street to load up on the local fare. This is the place to enjoy burgers and fries, Italian, Middle Eastern, and many more types of food.
If you’ve been hankering for a round of golf, you’re in luck, because the airport is located next to The Landings Golf Course & Teaching Centre. During golf season, this 18-hole course features a full practice range and teaching facilities. Book a tee time after you land, or hire an instructor to help you improve your par. Visiting on a Thursday, Friday, or the weekend? Go north about 5.5 km to the Collins Bay Flea Market, the oldest market of its type in Kingston. If you’re looking for the perfect Kingston souvenir, or just want to add to your pile of antiques and collectibles, this is the place to be.
