Prince Edward Island tourism is growing each year and it is easy to see why. Prince Edward Island or P.E.I., is the smallest Canadian province in both size and population, and the most densely populated. Prince Edward Island is located off the eastern coast of Canada, nestled between the provinces of New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Québec and Newfoundland in the Gulf of St. Lawrence.
The capital city and the commercial centre of P.E.I., Charlottetown is well known for its maritime charm. Charlottetown has an active cultural centre. Attractions range from musicals, dinner theatre, historical tours, and music shows covering Celtic to jazz. Charlottetown is also home to many fine galleries, specialty shops, and product tours.
For many visitors, no trip to the island is complete without a visit to the land of Anne of Green Gables, and everything associated with the young heroine. Not only is the green-gabled house, which helped inspire the famous novel by Lucy Maud Montgomery, now part of P.E.I. National Park, but fans of Anne can also visit the authors home.
Whether you take a ferry to the Island or drive across the famous Confederation Bridge, one of the longest, continuous, multi-span bridges in the world, you’ll be surprised at the selection of outdoor adventures available in this relaxed island of red rock and sand.
Best known primarily as a summertime destination, Prince Edward Island is a perfect place to bike, hike, eat lobster, tour historic sites or relax at the beach.
