About Charlottetown

Located on the southern coast of Prince Edward Island (PEI), Charlottetown is a charming city that balances small-town ambiance with the cultural vibrancy of a capital city. Known as the "Birthplace of Confederation," it was here that the first discussions were held in 1864, leading to Canada's formation as a country three years later.

Interesting Facts

Charlottetown is steeped in Canadian history and maritime heritage. Founded in 1764 and named in honor of Queen Charlotte, the wife of King George III of England, the city played a vital role in the country's creation. The historic Province House, a National Historic Site, hosted the Charlottetown Conference where delegates from British colonies first gathered to discuss Canadian Confederation. Charlottetown's storied past is beautifully preserved in its Victorian architecture and cobblestone streets, a picturesque backdrop that effortlessly transports visitors back in time.

Top Places to Visit

Venturing around Charlottetown, you can't miss the magnificent St. Dunstan's Basilica Cathedral, the fourth church on the site and a testament to Gothic Revival architecture. For theater enthusiasts, The Confederation Centre of the Arts, which houses a world-class art gallery and several theaters, is home to the famed Charlottetown Festival. The festival's highlight is the musical "Anne of Green Gables," based on Lucy Maud Montgomery's novel set in PEI.

Beacon Park, with its lovely waterfront boardwalk, is another must-see, offering stunning views of the harbor. For a taste of local life, explore the historic Charlottetown Farmers' Market, where the island's fresh produce, delectable baked goods, and artisanal products are on full display.

Hidden Gems

Charlottetown’s charm extends beyond its well-known landmarks to include lesser-known treasures that provide unique experiences. For instance, the quiet and picturesque Victoria Park offers panoramic seaside views, peaceful woodland trails, and a glimpse of the historic Prince Edward Battery.

The city also hosts a thriving craft beer scene. Visit the PEI Brewing Company for a tour and to sample their award-winning ales. If you prefer spirits, the Prince Edward Distillery is renowned for its artisanal gin and vodka.

Victoria Row, although not entirely 'hidden', is a local gem. It comes alive in summer with its pedestrian-only cobblestone street filled with outdoor dining, boutiques, and live music.

Charlottetown might be small, but it's a city that leaves a big impression. Its rich history, beautiful architecture, vibrant cultural scene, and the warmth of island hospitality make it a must-visit destination for those seeking a unique Canadian experience.
