Ten Things To See And Do In Georgetown

  • Top Giant Clam Dig in PEI

    Dig for giants

    Tranquility Cove Adventures will whisk you away to a deserted island off the coast of Prince Edward Island to dig for giant clams (Captain Gotell will provide all the gear you need). After the digging is done, you’ll head to shore to taste your catch and do a bit of beach combing. Don’t forget your camera!

    Eat your fill

    Good luck choosing which of Georgetown’s dining establishments to choose from! Will it be fresh seafood on the deck at Clamdiggers Beach House, an elegant meal at the Georgetown Historic Inn, an elevated home cooked meal at Eden’s Gate, or a good old fashioned burger at Daryl’s? You won’t stay hungry in this town, that’s for sure.

    Meet a jeweler

    Visit Shoreline Designs, a little shop by the sea where jeweler Peter Llewellyn creates his mas-terpieces with hand-picked sea glass, smoothed and sculpted by the ocean's tides and sand. The glass is blended with fine silver, resulting in one-of-a-kind necklaces, rings, earrings, and bracelets. Leave yourself time to listen to Peter’s colourful stories about the area.

    See the haunted theatre

    Visit one of the longest running theatres in Canada! The King's Playhouse has been entertaining guests for over 114 years. See if there’s a play, concert, or community event happening while you’re in town. Don’t forget to ask about the rumored haunting of the theatre.

    Stroll through the gardens

    Explore the sprawling A.A. MacDonald Gardens with its giant ship’s wheel and water fountain. Admire the blooms while you sit with a picnic lunch from one of the town’s many eating estab-lishments, or simply sit and dream about the day when you can return, perhaps for a longer stay.
