The beautiful capital of Prince Edward Island is a charming, friendly city in the midst of a stunningly scenic province. Separated from the mainland by the Northumberland Strait, P.E.I. is Canada’s smallest province, famous for its maritime culture, warm hospitality, excellent seafood and more. And, of course, for being the birthplace of Anne of Green Gables.
Charlottetown is often called ‘The birthplace of Confederation’, after the 1864 Charlottetown Conference, which led to confederation. For anyone keen to learn more about this formative event in Canada’s history there is a national historic site with a wide selection of fun, interesting activities, including guided walking tours and interactive displays.
While the surrounding countryside is an outdoor enthusiast’s paradise, Charlottetown itself is a bustling city, with a lively combination of arts and culture, nightlife, shopping and dining.
