I love the town ! The people are great! Wonderful place to retire too! Many grocery stores and shopping! Kingston Collection was a great place until Covid and I hope to see it come back to the lovely place it was.
Kingston is a very welcoming town. It is full of attractions. Wether you want to go out to dinner or bring your kid to a jungle gym, Kingston offers it all. It is a very clean town. Roads are always the cleanest in the area after snowfall. Kingston is also home to Pottle Street, a beautiful sports complex with baseball, soccer, softball, lacrosse and football fields and you can't forget the snack shack! I've always felt at home in Kingston and would recommend it to anyone. No where I would have rather grown up than in a tight knit community in Kingston, Massachusetts!
