THE YEAR OF DISCOVERY - PRINCE EDWARD ISLAND

 We took a trip across Canada and one of our favourite places to visit was Prince Edward Island.

 


There are a wealth of activities to keep you busy or relaxed on Prince Edward Island. Sandy beaches, warm ocean water, lively fun parks, world famous golfing and an overall casual atmosphere make up your Island playground. Prince Edward Island seems to provide just the right magical mix of nostalgia and fun.

 

As visitors to Prince Edward Island arrive at the crest of the 13-kilometre Confederation Bridge, 60 metres above Northumberland Strait, they are presented with a marvellous vista of the Island. South Shore is a region of rolling hills and redcliffs, and is in many ways the economic and political centre PEI.

Whether you approach Prince Edward Island by land, sea, or air, you'll feel a strange excitement begin to stir as you wonder, "What will it be like there?" No guarantees, of course, except that your heart rate will slow, your smiles will last longer, and you'll sometimes forget where you left your shoes.

 

 

 

Follow the coast. Because of Prince Edward Island's irregular shape and countless bays and inlets, a trip along the coast delivers new vistas at every turn. Charming communities, each with its own unique flavour, are tucked away, their secret treasures quietly awaiting discovery. Touring the three coastal drives is the perfect way to explore the Island's diverse landscape and history

Picturesque fishing and farming communities, Summerside's historic architecture, secluded beaches, non-stop festivals and events... these are just some of the highlights awaiting visitors touring Prince Edward Island's North Cape Coastal Drive. Add to this unspoiled natural wonders, fresh seafood and an area rich in Acadian culture and you have a first-rate tour of the Island's northwest region.


 

 

The Central Coastal Region is truly the heart of Prince Edward Island. Here you can visit pristine beaches; shop, dine and experience family fun; visit a lighthouse; go deep sea fishing; visit Anne of Green Gables House; enjoy Island music, theatre, arts and crafts; visit The Confederation Bridge; and make family memories to last a lifetime. Everything to love about Prince Edward Island is right here in the Central Coastal Region. Explore it along Green Gables Shore and Red Sands Shore.

Lobster suppers, a PEI tradition.

PEI LobsterFresh rolls, succulent seafood, local fruits and vegetables and of course PEI potato salad! These are the indispensable elements of a traditional Island lobster supper, whether served in a community hall, the deck of your cottage or right on the beach.

We went to St. Ann's and just had a wonderful lobster dinner.

 

Green Gables, located in Cavendish in the Prince Edward Island National Park, is a popular tourist destination. 

Each year hundreds of thousands of visitors from around the world visit the site which inspired the setting for L.M. Montgomery to create her beloved tale of a red-haired orphan, Anne of Green Gables. 

In addition to the Green Gables House, several museums and sites invite visitors to learn more about Anne and Montgomery and a popular musical version of the story runs every summer at the Charlottetown Festival.
