The Charlotte Coastal Region is a great destination for family fun. There are many organized activities and attractions, but there are also plenty of places to use your imagination and run free – skip rocks, hunt for treasure, and much more. Here are some of our favourites we think you should try.

Lunch with Llamas

After touring the impressive Kingsbrae Gardens, be sure to dine in the adjacent café where the garden’s resident alpacas make their daily lunchtime appearance on the front lawn, weather permitting.

Pack hot dogs, marshmallows and a blanket for a unique by-the-sea dining experience like no other at the many seaside campsites in the region (we recommend a little fire, not this big!)
