Prince Edward Island

Anne of Green Gables is one of the attractions waiting to be experienced while cruising to Prince Edward Island.Walk cobblestone streets and red dirt roads. Spend the afternoon at a white sandy beach where the sand "sings" due to its high percentage of silicone, or at a red sandy beach where the best sea glass is found. Visit the theatre, shop one of many quaint shops, or play a game of golf on a championship course. Then there are the galleries and museums to visit, the historical sites to explore, and the restaurants to sample. You'll run out of time long before you run out of things to do.

Prince Edward Island has always had a sense of mystery surrounding it, as there often is with tiny islands in huge oceans. Sometimes it feels like the rest of the world has forgotten about this little slice of Heaven in the Gulf of St. Lawrence but that's okay with most of the people who live here. They know they live somewhere special, where a long stroll or a country drive are things to be cherished. And then there's the scenery.

Come see for yourself why Conde Nast Traveler Magazine put PEI at #5 on its list of "Top 10 Islands to Visit in North America."
