“Upstreet carries four flagship beers, several seasonals and craft sodas. Their tap room has a casual atmosphere with some old school arcade games and board games. Their small menu is thoughtful and uses PEI products.

“A stroll down the tree-lined Victoria Row lets you discover Charlottetown's outdoor music scene. Pedestrianized in the warmer months and appealing to many local musicians, this street features fine 18th-century brick architecture, housing various boutiques and galleries. Choose from many dining options or just take a moment for casual refreshments and people watching from one of the area's alfresco cafes. Use Inspirock's suggestions to plan your Charlottetown trip and find the best activities and attractions for your vacation.”
