Renowned worldwide for its importance within the east coast shipping industry, Georgetown offers visitors a unique opportunity to view the first harbour to be built on the Eastern Seaboard. Home to one of the deepest harbours in North America, Georgetown was once a major ship-building centre and home to A.A. MacDonald, one of the Fathers of Confederation. The Georgetown Playhouse serves as the community’s major summertime attraction and offers an array of theatrical works amidst the charming atmosphere of one of P.E.I`s finest rural theatres. Within easy access of numerous beaches and neighbouring communities, Georgetown is an ideal location for visitors to the Island.
Georgetown is part of the Points East Coastal Drive Touring Region.
