The businesses have made the best of this location and its architecture. The restaurants and coffee houses have great ambiance. If you are visiting Charlottetown, it is certainly worth a visit. BUT It seems to me that the staff in some places don't really try...More

We were fortunate enough to be visiting PEI during their Farm Day in the City event, which was held along Victoria Row. There are shops of all kinds, many restaurants, and nice areas just to sit. A nice place to visit

We unfortunately came on Thanksgiving Monday and most of the shops were closed up. But a fantastic set up and I can see that in the warmer months this is a happening place. We will be back next summer to confirm that is true!! lol

This is a great area to catch up on your shopping. Many, many stores, cafe's and places just to browse in. They also offer picnic tables that have chess/checker games printed on them. A must see just in general.

Seems like after 4 pm this place becomes a ghost town. From the way things were setup, it seems pretty neat to stroll around the market vendors with a city vibe. Maybe next time

This is a great are to stroll, have a cup of coffee and shop. There are nice little boutique type shops, restaurants and gift shops. Very conveniently located in the middle of town - certainly walking distance to everything. Worth a stop!

In 2016 it closed to traffic May 14th. I'm not sure the exact date it will open to traffic in the fall but we've been there as late as September 25th and it was still pedestrian only.

How far is the cruise ship dock from this area of Charlottetown ?
April 10, 2016|
Response fromDavid M|
It's about a half-mile walking. Victoria Row is in the center of Charlottetown, at the Province House legislature building. You walk to the start of the cruise pier, then up through the downtown streets. It's an easy walk, ever so slightly uphill. David

Your route looks better than mine. I think I may change it to that. I heard that August 15th, Feast of the Assumption/ National Acadian Day is best celebrated Caraquet. Is there another place in I can see this Acadian celebration in all its glory other than Caraquet. This way on my way back I won't be seeing it twice.

Have you check out the drop off fee for the car from Fredericton? a much better tour is to start in Moncton and do the loop because you can easily get back to Moncton from Halifax for a much better deal for the car and flights. or even do a Halifax loop; as the airport is 30km outside the city easy to drive to NB after you land if you get a reasonable flight (but that means leaving Van real early)
