Discover Charlottetown

Charlottetown might be a small city, but it’s bursting with big energy and infectious island vibes. It’s got all the charm and hospitality PEI is famous for, plus culinary experiences and an arts and culture scene that take visitors by surprise—in the best way possible.

Come and explore the home of Confederation. It doesn’t get more Canadian than this!
Soak in the romance and nostalgia of our postcard-perfect streetscapes. Wander along a boardwalk where lobster boats and cruise ships cozy up. Stay in a B&B that will give you serious Anne energy. Sound good? It’s time to discover Charlottetown.
