Getting Here & Around

You’ve Arrived

Wondering how to get to Charlottetown? Look no further! Our city is one of those rare gems that is ‘off the beaten path’, yet still easy to get to. By sea, air, or land (ok, it’s a bridge, but still), arriving in Charlottetown is a breeze.

Once you’ve landed in the Island’s capital, it’s time to unwind and explore. Get into your walking shoes or rent a bicycle and discover our city’s storybook-like downtown. Visit one of the Charlottetown Visitor Information Centres for friendly, expert guidance and pick up a handy-dandy walking map. For adventures further afield, rent a car, take a bus tour, or hop on the Confederation Trail and take a self-guided cycling trip to central or eastern PEI.
