Charlottetown Travel Guide
Welcome to Charlottetown!In 1864, the foundation of Canada nationhood were laid in Charlottetown. In this coastal community, Canada's forefathers gathered to set out their vision for a country that in time would touch three oceans and span a continent. The accomplishment is now remembered at a series of significant museums and historic sites: Government House, Province House National Historic Site and Ardgowan National Historic Park. Aside from monuments and museums, visitors will find in Charlottetown a city rich with art and culture, not to mention song and dance. The Confederation Centre of the Arts is only one of many galleries showcasing a wealth of local and regional talent. If inspiration comes from the outdoors, a visitor will have no problem enjoying the countryside. Bicycling seaside trails or a trip hike the picturesque countryside are an ever popular pastime. On the sea, windsurfing, kayaking and sailing all share a wide and open ocean.
Built on the dock-side arrival point for members of the Charlottetown Conference that lead to confederation, Founder's Hall tells the story of Canada.
