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 U.S. & 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 red-clay 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

The 2018 Canadian Tour Planner & Operator Guide

enjoy 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.
