A vibrant seaside city, Charlottetown has the ability to charm every visitor to her shores. As the largest city on Prince Edward Island, Charlottetown is known for its east coast hospitality, laid-back atmosphere and year-round festivals to suit all tastes.
Charlottetown may be tucked away in Canada’s smallest province, but it is packed to the brim with fascinating history. As the birthplace of the Canadian Confederation, the residents take pride in their past and welcome visitors with open arms. The fabled haunts of the famed novel, ‘Anne of the Green Gables’ by Lucy Maud Montgomery, lie just outside the city and the magic of the novel has seeped into the local history. You will find Anne at every turn during your visit.
Charlottetown is also famous for its cuisine, with freshly caught seafood on every corner and world-class restaurants dotted throughout the town. You can also embark on boat tours around the coastline, explore aboriginal history and get into the Celtic spirit at a lively Ceilidh. Additionally, as Canada’s premier golfing destination, there are over 25 courses where you can practise your swing.
As well as flying into Charlottetown airport from many international destinations or stopping here on a luxury cruise, you can travel from mainland Nova Scotia by ferry or the Confederation Bridge by car.
