Prince Edward Island Travel Guide

Packed with cottages, fine restaurants, theatres, and festival activities in dozens of sea side villages, "The Gentle Island" of Prince Edward Island may remind some of a water front romance novel describing white picket fences and long grasses stung along sandy beaches under a golden sky. Add into perspective horse drawn carriage rides, a leisurely country and ocean side cycling tour for two, blanket picnic in the sand for the whole family, an on-water adventure whale watching, and a round of golf on rolling greens with sunset at the 18th hole, and you bring to life just some the magical moments while visiting P.E.I. A trip around Charlottetown's famed boardwalk, the Points East's natural landscape and fishing ports, or the North Cape's; windmills, striking white lighthouses, and vibrant cultural activities of the native Mi'kmaq and Celtic performing arts, all warm visitor's hearts with a new love for the island. The intriguing relaxation qualities shared with the locals, the hospitality, the village charm, and the same true to life locations depicted in the world renowned novel Anne of Green Gables are enchanting first hand experiences. Prince Edward Island has a long crisp, clear winter that begins late October when the Northumberland Strait fills with ice and the communities entertain themselves and visitors with downhill or cross-country skiing, snowmobile, and put on "event filled" winter festivals, which include snow sculpting, family activities, and warm treats. Visitors making the journey to Prince Edward Island are surrounded by the miles of sand, red soils, or seasonal snow can make their own mark by creating a spontaneous trip of unspoiled cozy retreats!
