Travel to Charlottetown

The capital of the smallest province in Canada has a colossal backstory: it’s where the nation of Canada was founded. Today, more than 150 years later, history is still engrained in Charlottetown’s graceful homes, colourful storefronts and charming lighthouses. Watch fishing boats come to shore with the makings of legendary fare (savoury seafood chowder, steaming lobster, just-shucked oysters), head to a rooftop or waterfront eatery, find a quaint inn (Anne of Green Gables-style) and slow down to Prince Edward Island time.


Don’t miss the iconic spots and hidden gems. No matter where you go in Charlottetown, there are amazing itinerary ideas for you to explore.
