Puddle Jumpin': Best Things To Do on a Rainy Day in Charlottetown 19 Header Item 1

Scottish Highland vibes, anyone? Contrary to popular opinion, Prince Edward Island does, in fact, get a variety of weather. Heck, sometimes it even rains! But it’s all wonderful – provided you’re dressed appropriately and ready to embrace whatever comes your way. Hopping in the car to take a misty drive to the seaside or cozying up with a book in a café can be really romantic. Here’s a few ways to embrace the moodier weather.

1) TREAT YO’SELF
Treat yourself to a spa day at Pure Spa or Grand Senses Spa, or stretch it out with a yoga class at Modo Yoga, With Mel Fitness & Yoga, Infrared Fitness, or Charlottetown Yoga Space.

2) THRIFT FINDS
Hit up antique shops across the island, or hunt for vintage goods in town at Green Eye Designs, Luxury Market Consignment, Back Alley Music, or the Charlottetown Flea Market (Sundays).

3) CHALLENGE YOUR BRAIN
Play a round of trivia at places like Churchill Arms, Hunter’s Ale House, The Hive + Honeycomb, HopYard, or The Old Triangle. Or, team up with your friends and race against the clock at the PEI Escape Rooms.
