Charlottetown is an incredibly vibrant seaside city. It’s full of historic charm, seemingly never-ending festivals and events, artisan shops and world-class restaurants. For this section of the Coastal Drive, you’ll want to park the car and walk through the city streets, along the boardwalk, or hop on a boat for a different view.
This region is a cultural hub and attracts performers from all over. When you visit, you’re almost guaranteed to hear music while walking around downtown. Canada was born (or perhaps more accurately, conceived) in Charlottetown when the Fathers of Confederation met at Province House National Historic Site in 1864 to plot out the creation of Canada. Province House is currently undergoing renovations but you can visit the Confederation Centre of the Arts next door for an exhibit.
