Top Tips for Visiting Charlottetown

1. Lobster Season 

Lobster season happens twice a year on Prince Edward Island; once from early May until the end of June, and again from mid-August to mid-October. Visit during these months and indulge in the freshest catch on the market!

2. Book your Anne of the Green Gables Tour

As a seasonal attraction, the Anne of the Green Gables Tour is only open from May until October and so becomes very busy during the summer months. Book your tickets in advance to ensure you have the best experience you can! You can even book a ‘Dress up as Anne’ experience in the Gateway Village, Cavendish.

3. Book your feast at The Inn at Bay Fortune

As one of the premier and most unique dining ventures on the island, seats at The Inn at Bay Fortune sell like hot cakes. Book early and enjoy a culinary experience like no other.

4. Sample some Mussels 

If you have never tried mussels before, a visit to Charlottetown is your perfect opportunity. The mussels from Prince Edward Island represent around 80% of those found in Canada - they produce over 50 million pounds each year! There is no better place to sample this seafood speciality.

5. Drive the Green Gables Shore

If you are a huge fan of Lucy Maud Montgomery's masterpiece, you can actually drive along the coastline that inspired the novel. Make sure you have your camera to capture panoramic images of the red sandstone cliffs, stunning beaches and lush farmland.
