Island CulturePrince Edward Island is known as the birthplace of Confederation.

Island Culture

Visiting an Island truly makes you feel like you’re away from it all. Prince Edward Island is no exception. As soon as you arrive, you’re minutes away from red or white-sand beaches, fields and woodland, picturesque golf courses and countless ocean vistas. Perhaps that helps explain why our Island was named best Island getaway in North America by the readers of Travel and Leisure magazine.

The Confederation Players (show here) perform historical vignettes as the “Fathers and Ladies of Confederation” on their historic walking tours of Charlottetown. In 2014 we celebrate the 150th anniversary of the 1864 Charlottetown Conference – come see why we are called “Canada’s Birthplace.”
