Fall Staycation in Charlottetown

As the days get shorter, the leaves start to fall, and temperatures drop, Prince Edward Island moves back into a slow and comfortable pace. Fall truly is a great time to enjoy PEI and there is still so much to see and do. So it’s the perfect time for Islanders to take advantage of the slower season, unwind, and romanticize their home, and a cozy staycation in PEI’s capital city is a great place to start.

Sleeping City Centre

The best way to enjoy everything that Charlottetown has to offer is by staying in the heart of it! A stay in the luxurious and elegant Holman Grand Hotel will have you walking distance from anywhere you want to be. Their comfortable rooms promise a cozy stay and offer an incredible view of Charlottetown’s skyline.

Endless Eats

It’s no joke that PEI is a food lovers’ paradise, and with a rich diversity of delicious culinary experiences, Charlottetown is the place to be. From pub food and fine dining, to classic Canadian dishes and flavours of the world, there is a restaurant to discover around every corner.

If you’re looking for an unforgettable Italian dining experience, look no further than Abbiocco Ristorante. This modern Italian-style restaurant is bursting at the seams with flavorful choices and a large selection of Italian wines.

You don’t have to venture far from your hotel room for an incredible meal. Redwater Rustic Grille is located in the Holman Grand Hotel’s lobby and boasts mouthwatering breakfast, lunch and dinner menus so you can enjoy something delicious at any time of day.


Make Founders’ Food Hall & Market a must-visit on your list of things to do. It is home to many delicious food vendors and makes the perfect place to stop for lunch. After lunch, be sure to browse the shops to search for locally made treasures.

If you’re looking to satisfy your sweet tooth, head over to COWS Ice Cream. These delectable scoops are creamy, rich, and handmade on PEI using locally sourced ingredients.

Picture Perfect Shopping

Exploring Downtown Charlottetown is incredibly fun, especially for people who love to shop as there is a treasure to find around every corner.

Shuffling through the packed shelves of The Bookman is the perfect weekend morning activity to get you in the mood to explore the historic city.

As you stroll down lower Queen Street and Water Street, you’ll find plenty of little shops tucked inside the city’s historic buildings. Continue you’re adventure down to Peake’s Wharf. This sweet tourist destination is a favourite because it is charming and full of local goodies and souvenirs.

Get Artsy

Are you in the mood for a show? The Play That Goes Wrong and I’m Every Woman are playing into late September as part of the The Charlottetown Festival. Later into fall, the Confederation Centre will have musical performances by Canadian musicians during Live @ The Centre. Pop over to the Art Gallery to see the newest of the revolving exhibits from Canadian artists.
