Charlottetown and PEI Destinations

The Mi’kmaq called the island Epekwitk, ‘’lying in the water’’. The French called it Île St-Jean. It is now known as Prince Edward Island.

No more recognized only for being the home to the Charlottetown Conference in 1864 that led Canada into becoming a nation, Prince Edward Island and Charlottetown are now world-renowned for the beauty of the scenery as well as a past that mixes 12,000 years of aboriginal occupation, European migrations, heartbreaking stories, but also colorful inhabitants, tales of the sea and a story that involve a red-hair girl that made the Island famous all over the world.

Charlottetown was incorporated as a city in 1855, but had seen Mi’kmaq presence there 2,000 years ago, attracted by the easy access to the whole island.

A city with many contrasts, the CUA 2022 venue offers the charm and lifestyle of a small historical island town, but also the commodities of a modern and thriving city, with two institutions of higher-education and the biotechnology and information technology industries being the two fastest growing sectors in the city.

Tourism PEI

Fun facts about PEI, as per Tourism PEI, so they must be true!!!*
  1. Islanders measure distance in time, they will also use directions using markers of things that may no longer exist. i.e. “Tracadie Beach is about 15 minutes away from the purple house”.
  2. Saturday night is reserved for the Hoedown on CFCY radio.
  3. P.E.I. has the warmest waters north of the Carolinas due to the Gulf of Saint Lawrence. Hello summer vacay with  over 90 beaches
  4. Prince Edward Island produces more than 40 million pounds of mussels per year, accounting for 80% of Canadian mussel production.
  5. If you call an Islander at 6 pm, they might not answer. After all, it’s time for Compass, the local news program.
  6. Your first feed of lobster is typically on Mother’s Day. You’re welcome moms!
  7. They are the bluefin tuna capital of the world.
  8. The soil is boldly red and beautiful. The colour comes from the high iron content!
  9.  Potato fudge is a thing here and it is delicious.
  10.  There is an operating lighthouse that you can stay in overnight. Magical.
