Georgetown may be small in size but the friendliness of the people and the character of the town is enormous.
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.
