7 Charlottetown Summer Date Ideas

It’s a small city, but there’s still plenty for daters to do this summer. Here are our top date ideas for Charlottetown singletons.

Charlottetown Date Idea: Rent Bikes

Get outside and go for a bike ride! Pack a picnic and head out on Confederation Trail. GoWheelin’ doesn’t just rent bikes to cyclists of all ages and experience levels, it will deliver the bikes to you wherever you are — and provide you with a helmet and bike lock!

Charlottetown Date Idea: Island Fringe Festival

Support both local and international artists at the third annual Island Fringe Festival this summer.

In August, check out some independent and alternative theatre and performances in unconventional venues throughout downtown Charlottetown. Admission is by donation, all of which goes directly to the artists.

Charlottetown Date Idea: Victoria Park

Go for a stroll through one of the most beautiful parks in the province. Walk along the harbour-front boardwalk, hike through the woods, or dust off your tennis rackets (or frisbee) and work up a sweat together.

Charlottetown Date Idea: PEI Brewing Co.

Like beer? Take your date to the PEI Brewing Co., where, for $10 a person, you can tour the facility and sample two handcrafted beers. (Then buy a six-pack and head home for a backyard BBQ date for two.)

Charlottetown Date Idea: Charlottetown Farmers’ Market

You know what they say: the couple that shops for local produce together stays together.

On Wednesdays and Saturdays throughout the summer, meet local farmers and artisans at the Charlottetown Farmers’ Market. Start your day together with a coffee and fresh-baked goods, or pick up organic veggies and homemade preserves in anticipation of a gourmet at-home date night.

Charlottetown Date Idea: The Lucy Maud Dining Room

Sample the best of what the country’s up-and-coming chefs have to offer — without breaking the bank — at the Culinary Institute of Canada’s training restaurant, the Lucy Maud Dining Room.

Check out the summer dinner menu here.

Charlottetown Date Idea: Peake’s Wharf Summer Concert Series

All you need is love…and ice cream…and live music.

Head to this historic waterfront in July and August and you’ll discover free concerts seven afternoons and evenings a week. Grab a cone at Cows Ice Cream, window-shop hand-in-hand, and enjoy the live music at the sun goes down.
