Life in Charlottetown?

by scheherazade

I may have a chance to work in Charlottetown with the Nutrisciences Institute, but I'd like to know more about what it's like to live in Charlottetown. I'd especially love to hear from other people who have moved to Charlottetown from other cities -- do you feel isolated, or do you enjoy the island life? I know many locals love it there, but is it different if you haven't grown up in the area?

For background: I'm from Ontario, mostly lived in cities not much larger than Charlottetown, but they're in southern Ontario, so they're all pretty close to lots of other places.. right now I live in Kingston, which is a city of 130,000 or so, and about 1.5 hours from Ottawa or the next big city. Is this pretty comparable to what life might be like in Charlottetown? Kingston's also got a big tourist industry in the summer, university town culture with lots of government jobs, and surrounded by farmland, etc. Would I feel just at home in Charlottetown?

I'm not a big fan of sunbathing or Anne G.G. but I do like the idea of living in another part of Canada and/or being near the ocean...

RE: RE: Life in Charlottetown?

I live in Charlottetown and grew up here, so I can't really give a tourist perspective, but I can give a few tips. Summer is the best season here, because that's when the city comes alive. Since there is a lot of tourism here in summer, a lot of businesses are seasonal and are open in summer. There are also a lot of festivals and events on PEI in summer. In winter the province in general is dead. Christmas is usually lively, but from January to April, it can get boring. In summer, you'll see LOTS of Anne-themed stuff, but you'll probably get used to it after a while. As for being near the ocean, Charlottetown is on the south shore, so there's the Hillsborough river and the waterfront in downtown Charlottetown. You can't swim in it, but it's a beautiful area.

The people in general are friendly, and you'll likely see many of the same people again unlike in big cities. Many people also know each other or each others' friends, but I personally find as a first-generation "Islander" (I was born here but both my parents are from away) that it can get cliquey at times - sometimes the "true islanders" (I think you must be at least fourth-generation) who grew up together tend to stick together and unintentionally reject outsiders.

Travelling outside of the Island can get costly, since the bridge toll is quite high, and sometimes you might feel isolated if you can't travel often to the mainland (especially in winter when the province is dead), but overall it's not too bad. I've known a few international students and immigrants, and a few people from bigger Canadian cities, and they love it here. They especially like the friendliness of the locals and the sense of community.

Travel Tips for Charlottetown

Craft Fairs at Christmas time

by fairy_dust

In November and December, there are a lot of Christmas craft fairs going on at different places in Charlottetown. They have all sorts of Christmas crafts, decorations, little gifts, etc. A lot of the goods are locally made too. It's a great opportunity to buy stuff from PEI and gifts for your loved ones.

Lebanese food

by fairy_dust about Town & Country Restaurant

This restaurant has Lebanese and Canadian food. It's a small family restaurant on Queen Street, and the food is great. You can eat in, or order take-out over the phone and pick it up. I absolutely love the Shish Taouk. The fries are great too, they're nice and big. The pita bread and hummus is really good too.

Red Hair and Freckles

"Cavendish, PEI"

I had to put this under Charlottetown because there isn't an option for Cavendish, PEI.

Lucy Maude Montgomery was born in Cavendish PEI and lived there until she married at the age of 36 and moved to Ontario.

L.M Montgomery is famous for her "Anne of Green Gables" books that depict a young girl's life in Prince Edward Island.

This link will take you to the offical L.M Montgomery site.
