There are plenty of things to with kids in Charlottetown. Let's have a look at some of the activities that the city has to offer:

  • Take the trolley and tour historic Charlottetown;  you can get off and on at the trolley at designated spots that you like. The Farmers' Market, Beaconsfield Historic House, Victoria Park Waterfront — the decision is yours. Buy a travel pass and you can use it for two consecutive days. Kids perhaps will enjoy better the carriage tour (it is more expensive but undoubtedly charming).
  • Take the family on a boat cruise and admire the Historic Charlottetown waterfront. Or go to Governor's Island to watch the seals. On board, you can enjoy a great meal and some French service. Harbour Hippo organizes tours that mix land and sea trips of the city in their extravagant vessel.  
  • Take the family to a bike tour across the island. There are several stores where you can rent not only a bicycle but all the biking gear. Smooth Cycle at Queen St. won't let you down.
  • Check the calendar of events at the Visit Charlottetown website (run by the PEI Capital Commission). If you happen to be visiting in August, don't miss Beaconsfield Children's Festival. The kids will enjoy five days of dance, music, songs and shows that will stimulate their imagination while they have lots of fun.
