Take the Ferry from Cape Vincent to Kingston Ontario (You'll need a passport) and visit nearby historic Old Fort Henry.

Fort Henry has absolutely beautiful views overlooking Navy Bay - I've even seen a wedding there once! Inside the museum is tons of information about the fort and other battlements in and around the Kingston area. Very informative, and very interesting!

UNESCO heritage site - a really neat site to see. Walk over the bridge from Kingston waterfront for about 4 miles and the fort will be standing on top of the hill providing a gorgeous vintage point for Kingston and the St. Lawrence river. The site itself is a museum and its fun because the people who works there role played as those who fought in the revolutionary war. The tour was awesome, in one hour, we got to know the lives of a soldier in the barracks and got a taste of what the life is like for the superiors. There are also a lot of reenactment activities like drum parade, rifle firing and canon firing. It's all in good fun. The fort itself is pretty small but spending a solid two or three hours there is nice. There are very few people even on weekends, a relaxing tourist spot!
