Signs of Vibrant Charlottetown

Charlottetown is a delightful city on Prince Edward Island, whose residents are blessed to live in such a vibrant place and beautiful province.  Small cities and towns throughout Canada often struggle to sustain a thriving economy and a high quality of life.  To its credit, Charlottetown appears to have figured out a formula that works well.

On a recent visit to its city center, I was amazed at the evident diversity of its wonderful shops, eateries and arts and music scene.  These shop signs are a small reflection of that.  Although PEI may be the smallest province in terms of geography and population, it holds its own quite nicely.

  1. Yes you are right Charlottetown is a vibrant city and the businesses in the old Downtown offer a lot to residents and visitors. All these businesses and many more are great and all in WARD 1 my neighbourhood. You are welcome to visit any time.

    • Liz, that may partly be my bias in how I photographed them. But, overall, they were fresh. I’ve been in many city centers where that’s not the case.

    • Thanks for the link to your post about your experience there. Very nice summary about layout and feel of the place. Glad you had a great time! 🙂

    Thanks for your comment on my posts on Amsterdam, the Butchart Gardens and Charleston. I wish I’d found your blog earlier because I just returned from a two-week trip to Toronto, Montreal and Quebec City. I can’t wait to read more of your posts on Canada as I develop my photographs and blogs on those cities. I’m a lobbyist from Sacramento, soon to be retired so that I can do more traveling. I found a lot to like about Canada, but Portugal and New Zealand top my bucket list. Best to you. PS: I hope this isn’t a duplicate; I had trouble posting this comment. Maureen
