Charlottetown Vacations 

Welcome to Charlottetown, the birthplace of Canada. It’s here that the founding fathers gathered for the Charlottetown Conference which led to the union of all British North America- now Canada. 


In the spirit of Canadian history, while on vacation in Charlottetown, visit Founders Hall, where you can learn all about Canadian history through amazing multimedia presentations and state of the art displays. There are also several different historic walking tours you can embark on. 

Interesting fact: Charlottetown was named for Queen Charlotte, the wife of King George III of England. 


Taking a leisurely stroll along the Charlottetown Boardwalk is a pleasant way to spend a lazy vacation day. Stop and visit the Blockhouse Point Lighthouse

Another interesting fact: Prince Edward Island is Canada’s smallest province. 

Anne with an E 

Charlottetown vacations would not be complete without a stop at the famous Anne of Green Gables house. Every little girl who has ever read the adventures of this beloved red haired orphan created by LM Montgomery will be tickled pink to stroll through the real Haunted Wood and Lovers Lane. There is also the interesting Lucy Maude Montgomery Heritage Museum in Park Corner. If you decide to visit Avonlea Village, you may be greeted by Anne or Diana and be able to take a wagon ride or stop in at the candy shop. 


There are lots of beaches close to Charlottetown, one to suit every taste. If you like taking long walks by the water, visit Cabot Beach. If you are bringing the whole family, the Provincial Parks beaches are great for everyone, with bathrooms, ice cream stands and even kites available for rent. 

Travel smart and buy travel insurance before you leave home.
