Travel Tips for Charlottetown
Theatre and shows
There is a lot of local theatre in Charlottetown, especially during the summer. There is always something going on at the Confederation Centre of the Arts whether it be a local dance recital, a ballet by a professional company on tour, or the world-famous Anne of Green Gables musical. Also, there are usually a lot of performances in places such as The Mack, the Arts Guild, the Carrefour de l'Isle St-Jean, etc.
The Confed Centre is the main theatre in town, but the others are pretty popular too. Many Acadian performances and shows in French are shown at the Carrefour as well.
To find out more about local shows, pick up an issue of The Buzz (free local newspaper about theatre/artistic events happening on PEI). It's available in most public places in town. I love getting involved in theatre and the performing arts, and I've done a lot of theatre in Charlottetown.
The UPEI (University of Prince Edward Island) Theatre Society puts on a show every semester, usually on campus but occasionally in another place in town. I've been involved in shows with the Theatre Society, and last semester did Christopher Marlowe's Doctor Faustus (I played a chorus person, a devil, and Beezlebub). Aside from that, I've done community theatre shows, such as the Vagina Monologues (it's shown every year) and school plays. I've also got my dance studio's recital every spring at the Confed Centre.
Highest point on PEI
Over the past couple of years, I've taken an interest in hiking/climbing up the highest elevations in the region. With the help of Google Earth, I located the two points on Prince Edward Island and went prepared to climb - dare I call them - "the peaks of Mount Springton " ?
In the first pic, I'm at "Peak #1", looking towards "Peak #2". Then, after an arduous trek over to "Peak #2", I snapped a pic looking back at "Peak #1" ! Fortunately, at the time of year I took these pictures, there were no potatoes in the ground to impede my progress. Otherwise, it might have taken me a whole 10 minutes to get from one to the other !!
For you hikers, Peak #1 is roughly at 184.108.40.206 N x 63.25.05.38 W, and Peak #2 is roughly at 220.127.116.11 N x 63.24.56.00 W. (Keep in mind that Google Earth's accuracy is off by about 100 meters or so.) The elevations are between 436 ft to 463 ft, depending upon which source you use, and I didn't have a GPS with me.
Victorian-style buildings in town
In downtown Charlottetown (aka Old Charlottetown), there are many old buildings from the Victorian Era. There are many little stone Churches (mostly Protestan) scattered all over the city, such as the Kirk of St. James, St. Paul's Church, and others. Most of them are close to the Confederation Centre and Rochford Square.
There are also a lot of old Victorian houses in town. They're not for visiting (people live in them), but you can look at the outside while walking down the street. Beaconsfield House (another house dating back from the Victorian Era) near Victoria Park is a tourist site open to the public.
Where I live
"A small place"
This is where I live - Charlottetown, the birthplace of Canadian confederation.
It's a small city, but it's a nice place. Most people here know each other or each other's friends or family.
Charlottetown is the capital of the province of Prince Edward Island. Although it's the smallest province in Canada, it's a popular tourist spot in the summer because of its beaches and historic sites (Anne of Green Gables house anyone?). In winter, it's kinda sleepy, but in the summer it's full of people and events, most of which happen in downtown Charlottetown.
I finally got some pictures! They're mostly from Springtime so the trees aren't green yet and the city isn't filled with tourists. I have a few from summer though. The picture above shows Queen Street in downtown Charlottetown, on a quiet day.
