Trip Planner : Canada / Prince Edward Island / Charlottetown
Birthplace of Confederation
The largest city on Prince Edward Island, Charlottetown remains small enough for easy exploration on foot. In a lively center that serves as the provincial capital, and houses nearly a half of the province's entire population, holidays in Charlottetown combine urban attractions with that pleasant small-town atmosphere rarely felt in major Canadian cities. Tours of Charlottetown allow you to see eye-catching churches, imposing civic buildings, and old warehouse converted into modern office spaces. Called the "Birthplace of Confederation" because of the role it played in the formation of modern Canada, this historic city remains relatively untouched by modernization and provides plenty of chances to sightsee at your own pace. Plan how to spend your time in Charlottetown and other destinations in Canada using our Canada trip itinerary planner.

Our expert advice on where to stay in Charlottetown
There's no better area from which to enjoy the city's iconic buildings than the center and its neighboring suburb, Spring Park. Here, you'll find the bulk of the city's accommodations, typically guesthouses or inns housed tastefully in restored old buildings. If you want views over the harbor, look closer to the waterfront to choose from several higher-end hotels. The neighborhood of West Royalty, located conveniently close to the University of Prince Edward Island, also offers a selection of budget to mid-range accommodations.
