Charlottetown Tourism

Charlottetown knows a thing or two about hospitality. After all, it has much reason to be proud of its seaside grandeur and its vibrant, verdant landscapes. People here love to host and celebrate just about everything from oysters to music to flowers, there’s a festival to rejoice everything here. Unbearable winters are made warm with Charlottetown’s signature hospitality and summers are when the landscape truly comes alive with glittering waters and glorious greens.

Don’t even try and escape the charm of the beautiful tree-lined pathways, brightly colored flower beds and historic splendor. There’s much to make you smile in this seaside town. Canada’s birthplace, Charlottetown flirts with you with its humble seductiveness and takes you in like one of its own. This quote from the town’s very own musical Anne of Green Gables summarizes the feeling of being in Charlottetown beautifully, ‘Look at that sea, girls--all silver and shadow and vision of things not seen. We couldn't enjoy its loveliness any more if we had millions of dollars and ropes of diamonds.’

  • Even though you will not find them out and about on the roads, foxes are in abundance in Prince Edward Island. Beware of them in deserted places.
  • Try to avoid travel to Charlottetown in winter as it gets quite boring because shops and a few attractions are shut in that period.
