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.’
