Charlottetown is the Birthplace of Confederation. This is where discussions began that led to the formation of Canada. The city has a rich history reflected in its architecture.
Take this self-guided walking tour that combines the technology of a handheld GPS unit with the adventure of a scavenger hunt. Written clues help you find each destination, and you'll find the answers to a customized crossword puzzle at different locations along the Quest route.
Each location on the walk will reveal interesting facts about Charlottetown and the island by showcasing some of the city's most beautiful architecture and the stories behind the buildings.
See Beaconsfield -- a luxury home built in 1877 by a wealthy shipbuilder and merchant -- and don't miss the story of the cannon sunk in the sidewalk in downtown Charlottetown after it fell over the cliff at Fort Amherst.
Not just for adult history buffs, this outing is also highly suitable for kids, who make excellent teammates as they quickly grasp GPS technology and accidentally learn a lot about Charlottetown along the way.
This self-guided walking tour can be completed easily within 2.5 hours, but if you wish to take longer, you can (subject to ship call timings). Your team size should be limited to no more than six persons so everyone can participate actively in using the GPS, crossword puzzle and clues.
