Prince Edward Island is alive with theatre. Take in a performance at the Confederation Centre of the Arts or the Guild.

One of the reasons we are known as Canada's Food Island is because of the range of farm-to-table culinary experiences you can find across PEI. There are many dining options in downtown Charlottetown. Grab a locally-crafted pint and a seat to listen to local artists at one of the many of the pubs in Charlottetown.

Engage in the many outdoor activities Victoria Park has to offer. Jump into the outdoor swimming pool, take in a ball game, try your luck on the tennis courts or tour the gardens at Government House. You'll be in awe of the harbour views that surround the walking boardwalk.

Did someone say ice cream? Be sure not to leave Charlottetown without a taste of Canada’s #1 ice cream - COWS.

We can’t wait for you to discover Charlottetown.
