Charlottetown’s historic downtown was built-pre car era and its walkability is part of its charm. Many of our accommodations are located in the heart of downtown, while others are just a short drive or bike ride away.
Get out on a sea-doo, stop to listen to live music, check out public art, learn about our city’s history, or try your hand at axe-throwing. Whatever you choose to do, our partners are ready to safely welcome you.
Whether you’re craving an early morning coffee, gourmet pizza, world-famous seafood, authentic Indian curry, or late-night nachos, PEI’s capital brims with over 35 outdoor dining options to eat and drink until your heart’s content.
Charlottetown’s central location makes it the ideal base from which to explore the rest of PEI. A short drive brings you to the Island’s famous white sand beaches, world-class golf, family attractions, quaint villages, and stunning red cliffs.
While we’re excited for more visitors to arrive, we’re also excited to hit up some of our favourite places, like the restaurants on Victoria Row, Peake’s Quay, Founders’ Food Hall & Market, the Downtown Farmers’ Market, and the Charlottetown Farmers’ Open Air Market while things are a little bit less busy.
