Charlottetown is known as the Birthplace of Confederation, where Canada’s Fathers of Confederation gathered in 1864 to discuss forming a nation stretching between the oceans. See the picturesque cottage home of William Henry Pope, one of the founding fathers, at the Ardgowan National Historic Site of Canada. Interestingly, Prince Edward Island remained independent until 1873.
Follow some of the 250 miles (400 kilometers) of the Confederation Trail, with hiking, cycling and picnicking along woodland paths that were once train tracks. Rent a kayak or sailboat to enjoy Charlottetown Harbour. Play on the beach or try lobster fishing.
Visit diverse museums and galleries ranging from the military artifacts in Prince Edward Island Regiment Museum to artisan boutiques featuring sea glass, pottery, jewelry making and glass blowing. The region also hosts festivals and performing arts events. Performance spaces at the Guild in downtown Charlottetown feature plays, musicals, lectures, improvisation and more. For Celtic appreciation, attend the Highland Games at Lord Selkirk Provincial Park in Belfast, about a 30-minute drive southeast.
