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

While we typically enjoy lots of sunshine here in Charlottetown, being an Island we do, in fact, get a variety of weather. But rest assured, the romance and beauty of our landscapes are striking in all seasons and weather. Escape with a book in a cozy café. Check out a live musical performance or head to the theatre. Spend a morning at the spa and soak up a little R&R. Or if you want to explore the countryside and shoreline, hop in the car and take a misty drive to the seaside.

Provided you’re dressed appropriately and ready to embrace whatever comes your way, there are so many ways to appreciate the moodier weather of our island. Afterall, nobody does cozy quite like us.

ART, HISTORY & CULTURE

Catch an indie movie or classic film at City Cinema, the city’s independent (& licensed) theatre, take in a live performance at The Guild’s black box theatre, or browse local artwork at The Hilda Woolnough Gallery at The Guild.

Get lost in one of our many independent bookstores. On Queen Street alone you’ll find three unique spots!

Drop in or book a tour of Beaconsfield Historic House, a fine example of Victorian-era architecture with a fascinating story to tell.

Enjoy live music on any given day or night at our pubs and restos or catch a drag show performance at various venues throughout the year.
