CHARLOTTETOWN TRAVEL GUIDE
LANGUAGESOfficially English and French
WHAT TO EATLocally sourced oysters and mussels (at fall’s Prince Edward Island International Shellfish Festival!), lobster (during peak lobster season from April to June), island-grown potatoes and more fresh produce from the Charlottetown Farmers’ Market Coop or the farmer-owned Riverview Country Market.
WHAT TO BRING BACKAnne of Green Gables chocolates or Anne-related souvenirs from the Anne of Green Gables store, Maritime Madness hot sauce, award-winning craft beers from the PEI Brewing Company and a “Honourary Islander” tee from the Kent Street Market.
FUN FACTWhile Charlottetown was named for Queen Charlotte, King George III’s wife, the island itself has gone through a few names. The Mi’kmaq called it Epekwitk (meaning “cradled in waves”), the French then referred to it as Île Saint-Jean and when the British took control, they switched from St. John’s Island to the tentative New Ireland before settling on Prince Edward Island in honour of Queen Victoria’s father, the Duke of Kent.
