Kingston has 8 city parks which are situated on Watts Bar Lake. The parks offer picnic areas, pavilions, benches, fishing piers, boat ramps, docks, jogging trail, and restrooms. Kingston City Park is home of the Smokin' the Water July 4th festivities. That park has two children's playgrounds, tennis courts, sand volleyball, basketball court, picnic tables, grills, boat ramps, docks, restrooms, and a large covered pavilion with its own kitchen, ceiling fans, and restrooms.

Fort Southwest Point is located in Kingston. It is the only fort at the present being restored back on its original foundations. The fort is owned, operated and maintained by the City of Kingston. Restoration of the fort began in 1974 with archaeological investigations from crews at the University of Tennessee. These crews exposed portions of foundations of six fort buildings and amassed a sizable collection of fort-period artifacts. Two more digs since have been done, 1984 and 1996, which showed the locations of thirteen buildings.

There are numerous marinas and boat ramps in Kingston at Watts Bar Lake.

The county has five golf courses: three nine-hole and two 18-hole courses.

Kingston has a large number of mom and pop restaurants as well as fast-food restaurants.
