Things to Do

Your Island Adventure Starts Here

Authentic. Unforgettable. That’s how most people describe their time in Charlottetown—and we think you will too! Dive into Island life and culture with a romantic escape, local experiences, good old-fashioned family fun, and more! Even if you “come from away”, you’re going to feel right at home.

Start off with a tour of our diverse streetscapes and postcard-perfect harbour to get a feel for all the city has to offer, or if you’re more DIY, set out on your own to explore delightful shops, galleries, and other gems. When it comes to entertainment—we’ve got you covered. See a certain redhead come to life on stage, slurp and shuck at Canada’s largest shellfish festival, or get your toes tapping to live music. For when you want to get out and get active, you can’t go wrong with a round of golf, a day kayaking, or a spin on a bike around the city.
