Georgetown

Georgetown is located at the mouth of the Brudenell River at Cardigan Bay.
The Town of Georgetown is the Capital of Kings County and is centrally situated on the coastline of the Kings county, Prince Edward Island, Canada. The location was originally designed to serve as the capital centre for the region. This was a natural consequence of the water-based transportation and industry of previous centuries.

Through the late 19th century, Georgetown was an important shipbuilding centre and port. In the early 1870s the Prince Edward Island Railway was built, linking the Georgetown to Charlottetown and Summerside by way of Mount Stewart Junction. Georgetown, having the Island's only deepwater port, and largely ice-free until late in the winter, saw dedicated steamship service to the mainland port of Pictou, Nova Scotia with its vital railway connections to the rest of Canada.

Georgetown is approximately 100km from the port of Charlottetown. It is a collection of venerable and beautiful old buildings as well as more recent structures, all laid out in a broad street system. Georgetown is adjacent to Brudenell River Provincial Park which hosts a campground and tourist accommodations. Two of the province's top golf courses are located at the Brudenell River Resort at the same location.
