PRINCE EDWARD ISLAND

Prince Edward Island
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.
Strike up the band and break out the
noisemakers 'cause we've got reason to
celebrate! Prince Edward Island was named
to the Travel + Leisure 2013 World's Best list!
Travel + Leisure ranked Prince Edward Island
as Top Island in Continental US & Canada.
Picturesque fishing and farming communities, PEI's historic architecture, secluded
beaches, non-stop festivals and events are
just some of the highlights awaiting visitors touring 'The Gentle Island.' Add to this
unspoiled natural wonders, fresh seafood and
an area rich in Acadian culture and you have a
first-rate tour of Canada's East Coast.
In fundamental ways, PEI remains
unchanged. Many of the farmers and fishers
are following family trades which go back
nearly two centuries. Visitors touring this
region will see farm tractors in red plowed
fields, lobster boats unloading their traps at
the wharf and oyster fishers working their
tongs in the rivers. So whether it's travelling
along the one of the many scenic heritage redclay roads; researching your family roots; discovering Island history featuring the Scottish,
Irish, Acadian, and native Mi'kmaq; touring
the many museums and heritage sites; or
soaking up the songs and stories that harken back to time long since past, there's an
exciting experience waiting for you on Prince
Edward Island.

Regions
PEI is divided into five touring regions:
* Green Gables Shore: Millions of readers from around the world have come to
know and love Anne of Green Gables™,
and Prince Edward Island is home to
many sites that pay tribute to the redhaired heroine and her creator, Lucy Maud
Montgomery. While Anne may be the principal attraction for many, the region is a
spectacular piece of Prince Edward Island's
acclaimed scenic landscape composed of
red sandstone cliffs, white sand beaches
and rolling farm fields. Some of the classic coastline has been protected in the
PEI National Park which hugs the central
north shore. Cavendish Grove is an ideal
entry way into the Park with its walking
trails, picnic grounds and stand of sugar
maples. Golfers have a hard decision
to make since Green Gables Shore has

more than 11 courses, as well as amusement parks, mini golf, water slides, a local
drive-in theatre and restaurants. Down the
road in North Rustico, adventure seekers
can choose from kayaking, canoeing or
deep-sea fishing. Or, take a dance lesson inside a completely refurbished pig
barn in Wheatley River owned by former
amateur champions or experience the
Indian River Festival Fine Music Series
at St. Mary's Church, the largest wooden
church on PEI.
* Red Sands Shore: Named for its red sand
beaches, jutting cliffs and clay roads, this
area is home to the Confederation Bridge,
one of the longest bridges in the world. The
13-kilometre trip takes only 10 minutes
but if you'd like more time to appreciate
the graceful bridge structure itself, head
over to St. Peter's Roman Catholic Church
in North Chelton. Back at the foot of the
Bridge, take some time to visit the shops
and cafés at Gateway Village. Heading east
along the TransCanada Highway, you will
soon come to Victoria-by-the-Sea, a historic
fishing village revitalized by the galleries,
studios, a theatre, restaurants and, perhaps
most tempting, a chocolate factory. Red
Sands Shore is easy to enjoy at any time of
year: U-Picks offers visitors the chance to
pluck apples right from the branch and the
Brookvale Provincial Ski Park has hills for
sledding, downhill skiing and snow-tubing
and a network of trails for cross-country skiing and exploring. By May, the air is warm
enough for a canoe or kayak paddle along
the West River in St. Catherines. You'll enjoy

The 2017 Canadian Tour Planner & Operator Guide

the scenery as you glide along in the shadows of the rolling Bonshaw Hills.
* Charlottetown Region: This capital city
is where the Fathers of Confederation
met at Province House in 1864 to plot
out the creation of Canada. "The Fathers
and Ladies of Confederation" offer guided
tours, or visitors can get caught up on
Canadian history at Founders' Hall down
the National Historic Street called Great
George. Steps away from Province House is
Victoria Row, a narrow street closed to car
traffic in summer with charming red brick
buildings which house an eclectic array of
shops and restaurants. The Confederation
Centre of the Arts occupies the other side
of Victoria Row. It's here that Anne of Green
Gables-The Musical™ has been delighting
audiences for nearly 50 incredible years.
The Confederation Centre won the 2008
Air Canada Business of the Year Award
from the Tourism Industry Association of
Canada! A boat cruise onto the waters of
Hillsborough Bay allows you to marvel at
the copper spires of St. Dunstan's Basilica.
Every Wednesday and Saturday, the country
comes to the city at the Farmer's Market,
where traditional Island fare like fresh
vegetables, meats and pies can be found
alongside ethnic cuisine from the four corners of the world. At night, Celtic bands,
local singers and summer festivals offer
endless entertainment. The 18-hole Fox
Meadow Golf and Country Club is just
seven minutes away, in Stratford. Keep
driving a little further and you'll discover
the red sands of Tea Hill Beach.
