    Basilica
    Big, ornate and kinda over the top for such a smallish city. Iconic and historical gothic style of architecture. I like checking out various temples, chapels, and synagogues…not to find fault with decor or style but to celebrate the faiths they reflect. Yeah, this is worth a visit.

    Great place to bring the family! We went in May, so the pool wasn’t open, but there were plenty of other play areas for the kids, and the boardwalk was beautiful.

    I visited around 11 am on a wednesday and I believe all the shops and restaurants were open. I wish I had a chance to try some of the food but I just had time to pop into the shops to buy gifts for myself and family members! (the crows nest/ kuriosities and the scottish shops were a fave!)

    The official residence of the lieutenant governor of PEI. They offer free tours at specific times. The residence has had a number of royal visitors, including Queen Elizabeth, Prince Philip, Princess Diana and Princess Kate!

    St. Peter’s Cathedral
    Historic and iconic. But it’s kinda low key. Not near as big or ornate as I was expecting. Having said that, there is a lot of beauty in its elevated simplicity. It’s good to check out churches, etc for style, decor and beliefs. Besides, you’re here in Charlottetown so you might as well check it out as well as the basicila for comparison.

    Located in a semi-industrial area in suburban Charlottetown with an inside bar and outside patio. Good staff attentive to your needs. On day of visit nine taps of their own beers; also non-beer (seltzer, cocktails). Chilled cans (in singles or four packs available) to take away. Also many of their core range is available in low alcohol style. Worth a visit if only for the craft beer.

    Lots of PEI produce vendors, artisans, authentic local instead of greenwashing of some farmers markets. Ready to eat food was also tempting and tasty. Popular! Hard to find a parking spot.

    Way chilly and windy morning. It was in the 30s.
    Easy level from downtown hotel (delta) less than two miles each way.
    Lighthouse is surrounded by high-end homes.
    Liked it. Might do a tour of light houses here.

    We rushed here to arrive just before closing time and were glad we made it. We spent ages with the receptionist learning in particular about places to eat on the island, things to do and of course where to buy gin …
    Easy parking right next door.

    We were unable to go inside but this is an impressive building from the outside. Also the old bell at the side and the antique fire engine at the rear were worth a look,
