The small city of Charlottetown is the capital of the province of Prince Edward Island.

This charming city is full of leafy avenues of Victorian clapboard houses, evoking a tangible sense of yesteryear. It was here, in Province House in 1864, that the colonies of British North America convened in federation to form the nation that today is Canada.

Explore Charlottetown on foot

The city’s compact size lends itself to exploration on foot; the Confederation Centre of the Arts, St. Dunstan’s Basilica, Victoria Park, Founders Hall Museum and the delightful harbor front are all within easy reach.

Visit 'Cows'

The principal thoroughfares are Grafton and Kent streets, housing a collection of historic buildings and a good selection of restaurants and shops. Don’t miss a visit to 'Cows', something of an island institution, renowned for their delicious ice-cream.
