Quick, which Canadian city is home to the world’s longest-running musical seen by 2.5 million people, offers the continent’s only authentic Chinese junk boat tour, makes the best ice cream in the country and is within a 45-minute drive of 20 golf courses? The answer will surprise many because it’s one of Canada’s smallest cities in its smallest province: Charlottetown, PEI.
It’s also the country’s birthplace, where the Fathers of Confederation met in 1864 to create Canada. Relive some of the city’s rich history by booking a room in the same hotel where some of those delegates stayed at the Charlottetown Conference over 150 years ago. Stay in a contemporary luxury hotel across the street from the Confederation Centre for the Arts where the Anne of Green Gables musical still runs. Enjoy your opulent room in a sumptuously furnished Victorian Inn that’s also a National Historic Site before walking down to the pier for that unique boat tour or heading out for a round of golf on courses that have hosted some of the world’s best.
In the midst of all this history, you’ll find local gastronomy, craft breweries, big outdoor celebrations and a mild Maritime climate, making for a perfect vacation destination.
